The Hiroshima Carp do not intend to extend the contracts of infielder Greg Larocca and pitchers Tom Davey and Kenny Rayborn, owner Hajime Matsuda said Friday. Larocca was limited to 80 game appearances this year in his second season in Japan, hitting .303 with 18 homers and 56 RBIs. Davey went 6-6 with a 2.98 ERA while Rayborn was 3-5 with a 5.06 ERA. The three players have been left out of new manager Marty Brown’s plans for next season, Matsuda said.
