[9/11/2016] Koichi Ogata expected to return in 2017

The Hiroshima Carp are planning to offer Koichi Ogata a contract for 2017. A team official told reporters they were going to offer him an extension regardless of whether or not the team finished in first place. Even though Ogata is working year-to-year, the Carp are thinking long-term with him, much like they did with Kenjiro Nomura.
