Lotte to send Ichi-gun players to Phoenix League

With the Nippon Series 10 days away, the Chiba Lotte Marines decided earlier today that they will be sending their Ichi-gun players to Miyazaki in order to play in a handful of Phoenix League games beginning on the 23rd.

It seems there a chance Yuki Karakawa could join the team in Miyazaki, but the club doesn't want to rush him and will likely take it easy with him. Karakawa had been working out at Ni-gun since early September and started throwing off a mound (lightly) earlier this month.
