According to Yu Darvish’s agent, the Nippon Ham Fighters will announce tonight which Major League team won the bidding for starter Yu Darvish. It will be Tuesday morning in Japan at the time of the announcement, which is expected to come around 8 or 9 p.m. ET.

The Blue Jays and Rangers seem to be the industry favorites to win the rights to Darvish, with the Blue Jays especially emerging as leading contenders. The Yankees, once seen as major players in this process, now seem to be in the background. There will be a real sense of surprise if they’re announced as the winners.
