Masahiro Tanaka WILL Be Posted, Rejoice!

The speculation of whether Masahiro Tanaka would be posted or not has come to an end now that his former team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles, have announced that they would honor his wishes to be posted this offseason. This is all off the heels of Major League Baseball and the NPB agreeing on a posting max of $20 million and the power going to the player if multiple teams bid the max on the player, which is expected with Tanaka.

Some more news to come out of the new agreement is the team can actually name the posting limit themselves as long as it is reaches or is under $20 million. If the Golden Eagles wanted to put the bid at $10 million max for Tanaka they could although I cannot see a team not asking for the maximum for their player. Either way the Tanaka sweepstakes is set to begin as early as this week.
