Hiroshima Carp

  • The Carp decided not to add Ryuji Ichioka (right shoulder) to the active roster until after the All-Star break because they feel he is not ready yet.  In the meantime, Zach Phillips will be called up on Saturday to bolster the bullpen after Bryan Bullington makes his start on Friday. Source: Sponichi 7/11/2014
