Nikkan Sports: Hanshin Tigers looking into Tsuyoshi Nishioka

by on Aug.22, 2012 @ 2:50 pm, under NPB

According to Nikkan Sports, the Hanshin Tigers started looking into Tsuyoshi Nishioka as a possible option for their rebuilding plans.

Nishioka is still in the second year of a three-year deal, but the Tigers want to make sure they are ready in case his availability changes.

The Tigers do also have Takashi Toritani and Keiichi Hirano, but could lose one or both to free agency (international and domestic, respectively).  Even so, if both were to remain with the team, the Tigers feel all three players could potentially co-exist on the same active roster without any significant issues.
