Toshihisa Nishi's agent, John Esposito, has been pitching him to a bunch of teams as a "solid fielder with some pop and a good head on his shoulder." Esposito has apparently met with about 15 teams and has personally handed them Nishi's DVD.

Hisanori Takahashi's agent, Nakanishi, is trying to meet with as many teams as possible and has been selling Takahashi as a starter.
