Nishioka and Twins Part Ways

It is official and final. Tsuyoshi Nishioka is no longer a part of the Twins organization.

As I speculated not long ago, he will be returning to Japan. I still stand by my comments in that post, and now hope the best for him as he most likely tries to resurrect his career in Japan.

Give him some credit, if the reports in the media today are accurate, he approached the Twins and asked for his release. In doing so he agreed to forfeit the $3 million left on his three-year contract and also agreed to waive the $250,000 buy out fee.

Too bad it didn’t work out. It would have been fun to have a good Japanese player on the team.
