...The Marines were hoping to have Yuki Karakawa back in about four weeks after he fractured his right middle finger on 5/13.  But at this point, Karakawa has only managed played catch just once.  Said Norifumi Nishimura, "Things are taking a bit longer than expected.  And it doesn't seem like the pain has gone away.  I have no idea when he'll be able to return."

Things appear to moving along for Takashi Ogino.  Seems he'll be able to start running soon and should be able to make a return to Ni-gun at the end of July.
