Tazawa set on The Show

by John E. Gibson (Oct 30, 2008)

Corporate league right-hander Junichi Tazawa reiterated his desire to play in the major leagues ahead of today's Japanese baseball draft.

"Nothing has changed," the 22-year-old Eneos pitcher said Wednesday. "Even if I get drafted, I'll just wait it out."

If Tazawa does get picked, a team has until the end of January to negotiate a contract.

Tazawa intends to turn down all offers with the hopes of signing a deal with a major league team. The Atlanta Braves and the National League champion Philadelphia Phillies are reportedly interested.
