Takahashi to Jays

by Patrick Newman (Feb 2, 2009)

The news of Ken Takahashi's minor league deal with the Blue Jays is already out there, so I'll add a few details courtesy of the online edition of the Chugoku Shimbun.

  • One-year, minor league deal with a spring training invite
  • Team will provide a personal trainer/translator
  • The team will evaluate him as a starter
  • If he makes the major league team and meets all incentives, his salary will be about $1.5m

The deal is final once the visa paperwork goes through. If Takahashi does indeed make the team, every AL East team will have a Japanese player on it's roster.
