According to the Boston Globe, the Red Sox and Junichi Tazawa have agreed to a three year deal worth 3 million dollars. The Globe is reporting that he chose the Red Sox over the Rangers, who reportedly offered more money than the Red Sox. However, the Japanese presence the Red Sox have with Hideki Okajima, Daisuke Matsuzaka, and others in their minor league system made it easy for Tazawa to pick them.
He is expected to fly into Boston sometime this week to take a physical and officially announce the deal.
