by on Aug.15, 2011 @ 6:37 pm, under NPB

Yuki Karakawa took a batted ball of his left calf during his last start on 8/12 (vs Rakuten).  He was taken off the active roster today because the swelling hasn't gone away yet.  Karakawa is expected to return after 10 days.

Said Karakawa, "I can't really run at this point.  Even while walking, it feels like I'm draft my foot.  I hate to leave the starting rotation like this, but I will return in 10 days."
