[10/25/2017] Hiroshima Carp: foreign player status

The media learned that the Hiroshima Carp are not planning to offer twenty-eight-year-old Bradin Hagens a contract for 2018. The Carp are also not planning to offer new contracts to thirty-year-old Ryan Brasier and thirty-two-year-old Ramiro Pena. Hiroshima will most likely make a decision on twenty-nine-year-old Jay Jackson after seeing what else is available.

Thirty-three-year-old Kris Johnson will be in the second year of a three-contract next year. Thirty-seven-year-old Brad Eldred will be in the second year of a two-year contract. The Carp locked up twenty-five-year-old Xavier Batista and twenty-four-year-old Alejandro Mejia to six-year contracts this year.
