Masahiro Tanaka New York Yankee Contract Details


Tanaka will in fact receive a full no trade clause as expected. Tanaka will also receive a $35k moving allowance, a $100k annual housing allowance to be used in New York or near the team’s Spring Training complex in Tampa, and $85k to hire an interpreter. The Yankees are also giving him four first class round trip plane tickets from New York and Japan. 

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 12 hours or so you probably already heard that Japanese star Masahiro Tanaka is the latest member of the New York Yankees, hallelujah to that. I just wanted to let you guys know, in case you missed it, some of the details that are surfacing about Tanaka’s monster deal he just signed. Tanaka signed a seven year deal worth $155 million for the 8th highest AAV in the league at $22.15 million annually. Also Tanaka has an opt out clause after four seasons in case he believes that Chicago really was a nice place to live after the 2017 season, I still claim their pizza sucks though.  I have not seen a mention either way on whether or not Tanaka has a no trade clause but I would be shocked if one were not included, not that it would be necessary. Either way Tanaka is a Yankee now and the world can go back to hating New York for our money and not because the Yankees give them a reason to.
