Tazawa Rumor Mongering

by Patrick Newman (Nov 1, 2008)

As you no doubt know by now, Junichi Tazawa went unselected in the recent NPB draft, clearing the way for him to sign with an MLB organization. While official negotiations reportedly won't start until Nov 24 or so, Tazawa is meeting with representatives from the Mariners and Braves on Tuesday. I've picked up on about six teams interested in Tazawa, with the most recent addition to the mix being the Phillies.

Update, November 1 afternoon: Okay, it's raining out here in Silicon Valley so I might keep going with this. Here are the teams that I've seen reported in the media as having interest in Tazawa:

  • Boston
  • Atlanta
  • Seattle
  • Pittsburgh
  • Detroit
  • Chicago Cubs
  • Philadelphia

Japanball.com has the Kyodo version of the story I published above.
