Merry Christmas, Yankees fans!

According to new reports out of Japan, Masahiro Tanaka will be posted and made available to the Yankees (and the rest of Major League Baseball). Entering negotiations with the Japanese star will require a $20 million posting fee, which several teams are likely to offer. An official announcement should come soon, which should finally end this will they, won’t they saga.

Once Tanaka is placed on the market, it’s a matter of making him an offer he can’t refuse. There will absolutely be other teams in the mix.

A couple of the Japanese reports can be found here and here.
