Tazawa Race Heating Up

Japanese phenom Junichi Tazawa is meeting with the Braves and Mariners next week, while the Cubs, Red Sox, and Phillies are also vying for his services. Tazawa is the best young pitcher in Japan, and recently went undrafted opening the way for him to sign with an MLB team. Aside from the teams mentioned above, the Pirates, Tigers, and Rangers are also believed to be interested.

At this point, it is hard to say where he will sign. But it is likely the Mariners, Red Sox, Cubs, and Phillies are the front runners because of the Japanese presence the teams already have, as well as the recent success of most those teams.
