LA Times' Dylan Hernandez posted a report that suggests Tsuyoshi Nishioka wants to play for the Los Angeles Dodgers, amongst a number of other West Coast teams.  Here's a snip:

Middle infielder Tsuyoshi Nishioka is likely to be made available to major league clubs by the Chiba Lotte Marines in the near future and the Dodgers are his preferred landing spot, according to a baseball source close to him who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.

Nishioka wants to play on the West Coast and is also interested in playing for the San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks, the source said.

Of course, where Nishioka wants to play doesn't really matter since he'd have to go through the posting process.
