...Yuki Karakawa was taken off the active roster today under the assumption that it will take him at least 10 days in order to recover from the contusions on his right middle and ring fingers.
...Yoshihisa Naruse will likely get the start against the Yomiuri Giants today. Naruse has given up an NPB-leading 13 home runs this year. Should be an interesting start.
...It seems Yuki Karakawa could miss his next scheduled start on the 19th (vs Chunichi Dragons at Chiba Lotte Marines).
