While the Twins negotiate with Japanese shortstop Tsuyoshi Nishioka after bidding $5 million for his exclusive negotiating rights, here’s a five-minute highlight video put together by his representatives at the Beverly Hills Sports Complex:
Nishioka looks pretty good, but then again I’m pretty sure someone could splice together five minutes of footage that makes Juan Castro look like a good player too.
Like many Japanese hitters Nishioka has a pronounced leg kick that precedes his swing, so it’ll be interesting to see if the Twins will ask him to ditch it, assuming they sign him.
