Hanshin general manager Katsuhiro Nakamura told reporters on Monday that he spoke to Kaneko's agent on Sunday. "I spoke to his agent over the phone on Sunday. There was nothing new, but he did emphasize that money wasn't the only thing. He said Kaneko wasn't that kind of player," said Nakamura. The Tigers are not planning to make any changes to the offer unless they hear from Kaneko. Source: Sponichi 12/23/2014 ... Team facilities (medical, rehab, training) appear to be a big concern for Kaneko, in addition to winning. Source: Daily Sports 12/23/2014, Sanspo 12/23/2014

The Tigers have yet to hear from Takashi Toritani (33), as of Monday. They would like a decision before the end of the year, but there is a chance they will have to wait until next year. Source: Sanspo 12/23/2014
