Age discrepency problem with Carp Spring camp invitee out of DR academy

Juan Javier (ファン・ハビエル) was invited by the Hiroshima Carp to attend Spring camp next year.  Javier is a pitcher out of Hiroshima's Carp Academy in the Dominican Republic.  Seems he was recently caught lying about his age -- instead of being 16, he's actually 22.

But that doesn't seem to have really phased the Carp.  Javier is still set to attend Spring camp because the Carp are still impressed with his skill-set.
