Yuki Karakawa (LOT) was taken off the active roster today with tightness in his right elbow.  Karakawa told reporters that he didn't expect to miss more than 10 days.

In other team injury news:

Yoshihiro Ito (LOT) appears to be close to returning to the active roster (he was taken off the active roster on the 12th with right shoulder pain).  Ito tossed a shutout inning in relief in a rehab outing at Ni-gun earlier today.  Ito will probably get one more Ni-gun rehab outing before a possible return to the active roster sometime later this week.
