Takahashi in Final Negotiations

by Patrick Newman (Jan 30, 2009)

Ken Takahashi may be getting close to finding a destination. Word out of Japan is that he's in final negotiations with four teams - previously, the Cubs, Mets, Blue Jays, Orioles, and Phillies had been noted as interested in his services. His agent is fighting to get him a major league deal, and expects to have an announcement in a week at the latest. He's been quoted recently as saying he'd come to America "under any circumstances", which the Japanese media has interpreted as a willingness to accept a minor league deal. One thing that hadn't been previously reported is that he also had offers from three NPB teams, which he turned down.
