BREAKING: Tanaka to #Yankees, seven years, $155M, opt-out after fourth year.

 

A-Rod fallout. We'll see if he's more Darvish or Igawa or somewhere in the middle like Dice-K. Good signing for the Yankees. They need pitching, still.

Report: Yankees, Tanaka agree to deal

New York reaches seven-year, $155 million contract with Japanese hurler

NEW YORK (AP) -- Yankees co-chairman Hank Steinbrenner says the team has agreed to a $155 million, seven-year contract with prized Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.
 

Along with the contract, first reported by Fox, the Yankees must pay a $20 million fee to the Japanese team of the 25-year-old right-hander, the Rakuten Golden Eagles.

 

Tanaka caps an offseason that saw the Yankees add Jacoby Ellsbury,Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran.

 

Steinbrenner said Wednesday that "we had to make sure we had enough pitching to go together with our new lineup."

 

Big league teams had until Friday to reach an agreement with Tanaka, who was 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA last year as the Golden Eagles won the Japan Series title.

Yes, they did. If Pineda comes back and amounts to anything, the rotation is going to be solid.

They needed to. They're going to obliterate the Luxury tax again though.

Yuck!

 

22 mill for a Japanese pitcher everyone will figure out by May! How many Japanese pitchers have Hall of Fame careers in the MLB ? And then we wonder why the Yanks do not win the World Series with all that money. A high risk move.

Ticket prices don't go down when they are under the luxury tax so I am okay with it.

 

And people here have said that ARod will win his federal case.  So maybe he can start at 3B.  :)

I think Tanaka's a huge gamble for the Yankees. He threw 772 pitches in a single tournament: http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/9452014/pitcher-tomohiro-anraku-future-japanese-baseball-espn-magazine

 

He's also throw over 1300 professional innings.

 

I hope the Yankees at least got the dude to take a physical. Seems like a huge risk.

POTW Nomination...if the site did this sort of thing.

Word.

 

A good high risk/high reward signing.  Look at his Japan numbers in comparison to Davarish and Dice-K, he performed closer to Yu than Dice.

Andruw Jones was on with Kay. Jones played with Tanaka last year. Said he's ok, not overpowering, but works hard and is crafty. Said he'd be a nice third starter next season.

Good luck.

You sure that fat, Dominican Tom Sellek isn't just a little jealous he was pretty much shot by 30, while Tanaka is about to make more than he ever did as a professional?
