The Hiroshima Carp are looking to bring back Bryan BullingtonKam Mickolio, and Brad Eldred next season.  Bullington has expressed an interest to return.  Mickolio and Eldred signed two-years deals where the second year is a club option.

The Carp are still undecided on Dennis Sarfate.  The club may be leaning towards cutting ties with Nick Stavinoha and Brian Barden.

The Carp reportedly have a list of thirty foreign player candidates for the 2013 season and would ultimately like to carry a total of six foreign players next season (three pitchers, three position players).

Bullpen Sessions / Batting Practice

Thursday

  • 1st round draft pick Yusuke Nomura threw 149 pitches in the bullpen.  That is a personal high during spring camp this year.  Nick Stavinoha also spent some time standing in the batter's box during the session. (Sanspo)

Eishin Soyogi will begin rehabbing at San-gun due to left knee problem.  Soyogi started feeling some discomfort in the knee on Wednesday and told reporters it was nothing serious and that it was a chronic condition he had to work through.  The team is hopeful he will return without missing much time.

Brian Barden picked up an acoustic guitar before the start of spring camp and has been practicing about thirty minutes everyday.
