MLB | Masahiro Tanaka in limbo
Japanese League SP Masahiro Tanaka is in limbo after Major League Baseball terminated the previous posting fee agreement with Japan, according to a source. A new proposal is awaiting approval of Japanese baseball officials, and major league owners may decide to end the posting system entirely and wait to sign Japanese players when they become free agents after nine years. Tanaka is a highly sought after commodity this offseason by major league clubs. "Since MLB canceled the existing posting agreement last year, we've been negotiating with the Japanese to revise the old system," said the source. "As of now, there is no agreement, so players can't be posted. They have a proposal from us they can accept. It's in their court."
