Lotte: Yuki Karakawa to make return during Nippon Series?

by on Oct.21, 2010 @ 11:08 am, under NPB

Sponichi and Sanspo are both carrying reports that Yuki Karakawa could make a return to the active roster during the Nippon Series.  Interestingly, the two reports carry slightly different figures when it comes to how close Karakawa is towards being 100% -- Sponichi quotes an unnamed club source that says Karakawa is back to about 90% while Sanspo has a quote that mentions 80%.

In either cases, both papers seem to think Karakawa could return to Lotte in time for the Nippon Series.

If he manages to get back to 100% by the Nippon Series, he could prove to be a huge shot in the arm for Lotte.
