Kazuo Fukumori (RAK) told reporters he plans to retire at the end of the season because the pain in his right elbow hasn't gone away, despite having his elbow cleaned out in May.

On 8/25, Fukumori gave up 2 homers in 0.1 innings of work during a Ni-gun rehab game on 8/25 against Nippon Ham. The next day he returned to Sendai and informed the club of his decision to retire.
