Masahiro Tanaka Could Be Back In The USA On Sunday

Masahiro Tanaka has his visa in hand and is ready to get his New York Yankees career started, and that could get started as early as this Sunday. This was after the Yankees reached out to Senator Chuck Schumer of New York with help expediting the visa process, which can take as long as a month to obtain for you or I. The 25 year old is heading to New York and the Major Leagues after spending his career in Japan with the Rakuten Golden Eagles after signing a deal worth $155 million over the next seven years, with an opt out clause after the fourth year.

Tanaka is said to be in the best shape of his career which is exciting when you remember he went 24-0 last year and won the championship series over there. Pitchers and catchers report one week from tomorrow officially so the sooner Tanaka can get here the better in my opinion.
