MLB To Prevent Tanaka From Donating To Rakuten

There were many meetings held before the Rakuten Golden Eagles finally decided to post their star pitcher Masahiro Tanaka including talks of a new deal with the 25 year old right hander. News has been slowly circulating that Tanaka planned on donating money to Rakuten to help put a dome on the stadium over there and MLB is not going to allow that.

Major League Baseball wants to make sure that Rakuten will get no more than the $20 million posting fee that all parties agreed upon, and good for them for standing up to Rakuten and holding up the policies in place. There are rules already in place stating that the former team cannot receive any money from the player or any money besides the posting fee.
