Darvish Signs for 2011

by Patrick Newman (Jan 6, 2011)

For the third year in a row, I get to write that Yu Darvish has renewed his contract for another season with Nippon Ham. This year though, I get to write that he's taken his rightful place as Japan's highest-paid player. Darvish's salary for 2011 will be 500m yen ($6m at January 6th's rate), a 170m yen raise over what he made last season.

When asked about the possibility of using the posting system to move to the Majors next offseason or later, Darvish issued a "no comment".
