The Hiroshima Carp announced that Brad Eldred will temporarily return to the United States for additional tests on his neck. There is no timetable for when he will rejoin the team.
[UPDATE 9/29 @ 5:24pm]
Eldred first started having problems with his neck during a three-game series against Ni-gun Orix that started on September 7. He still felt pain a few days later and it got worse when he fielded a grounder during a game. He will set a schedule after he gets the neck checked out.
