Eric Stults is heading to Japan, as the Dodgers are finalizing a sale of the left-hander to the Hiroshima Carp.


The deal hasn’t been announced, and Stults said he was instructed by his agent not to talk about it, but Stults told his teammates this morning that he is moving to Hiroshima, according to multiple clubhouse sources.

Stults, who went into camp as a candidate to be the fifth starter, was charged with three earned runs in 5 1/3 innings this spring. He was 8-10 with a 4.84 earned-run average in his career with the Dodgers.
