The Hiroshima Carp announced on Thursday the acquisition of former Central League home run king Takahiro Arai, after he was granted his release by the Hanshin Tigers earlier this month.

The 37-year-old Arai will be returning to the club he won the CL home run title with in 2005 and is set to be unveiled at a news conference at Mazda Stadium on Friday.
