Yuki Karakawa was taken off the active roster today with right elbow pain.

Said Norifumi Nishimura, "To be honest, I have no idea how long it will take before he can throw again.  It is not a serious condition, but we need to be careful because of where the pain is.  It will take a few days."

With regards to Karakawa's status for the upcoming All-Star series, Nishimura told reporters that it was something they needed to think about and discuss.
