Hoshino is ok with players wanting to head to the Majors through the posting system.

"I can understand players waning to go to the Majors at the peak.  I would like players with aspirations to step up and start putting up results so that they can go. ... I will be more than happy to let players that work hard to attain their dreams go," Hoshino said.
