Hiroshima Carp: February 15, 2012

The Carp had the day off today.

The Ichi-gun Carp closed out Okinawa camp on Tuesday and headed to Nichinan, Miyazaki for the second leg of spring camp.


The Carp held a staff meeting today and decided to hold off making hard changes to player assignments and will instead try a number of Ni-gun players at Ichi-gun camp first to see if they are ready to be called up.

The team also decided to call Tomonori Maeda up to Ichi-gun camp.  Shigenobu Shima and Ryuji Yokoyama will continue to workout at Ni-gun camp until they are better prepared.


Shota Dobayashi has taken two baseballs off his face during spring camp so far: once off his left cheek during indoor fielding practice on February 7 and he was hit near his left eyebrow when a grounder took a bad hop during Tuesday's practice game against the Hanshin Tigers.


Masaya Kanemaru will be sent to San-gun camp in Nichinan because of left elbow pains.


The Carp drew around 4,000 fans on Tuesday.
