As I’ve noted before, finding a good online translation of a Japanese newspaper article isn’t easy. But it seems that the latest news about Masahiro Tanaka is that teams submitted official bids this week, with everyone seriously involved going at least six years and $100 million. The Yankees are mentioned as one of those teams.
This is based on loose translation of a story from Nikkan Sports. I’m able to piece together some rough idea of what the story says, and it helps that the good folks over at MLB Trade Rumors posted the information in a way that I can far more easily understand.
The deadline for a Tanaka decision is Friday.
