The media learned yesterday that the Chiba Lotte Marines likely won't offer Ni-gun pitching coach Takashi Nishimoto an extension for the 2012 season.  Nishimoto is in the final year of a 2-year deal.

Nishimoto joined the Marines as an Ichi-gun pitching coach / batter coach in 2010.  He was then re-assigned to Ni-gun pitching coach in 2011.
