Eri Yoshida returned to Japan today.  Her comments to reporters:

"I'm not sure what to do, about the current season and next. ... I did win a game and I really wanted to pitch more.  I would like to pitch in games, but I also want to practice (in preparation for the next season). ... I need to work on building up my body.  In order to be successful with the knuckleball, I need to improve myself by practicing and experimenting."

UPDATE 8/25 @ 11:50am - Yoshida also told reporters yesterday that she will continue pursuing her dream of pitching in the Majors and will try once again to pitch in the US next season.
