With pitchers like Hiroki Kuroda, Yuya Fukui, and Hiroki Yokoyama either hurt or struggling, the Hiroshima Carp will most likely turn to a number of younger options.
Aren Kuri will most likely get a start against Yakult at Jingu Stadium on May 12. Takaya Toda could follow with a start against Chunichi at Nagoya Dome on May 13. The next two starts after that could go to Akitake Okada, Kyohei Nakamura, or Yuta Nakamura.
