The Yankees Signed Masahiro Tanaka, That Really Good Japanese Pitcher. How Much Will He Make?

Masahiro Tanaka Yankees

For the third time in recent history, there was a highly-touted pitcher from Japan on the MLB market. The Daisuke Matsuzaka experiment failed for the Boston Red Sox. The Yu Darvish experiment is working out swimmingly for the Texas Rangers. It is very surprising that the New York Yankees haven’t been mentioned until this sentence. But finally, they’re in on the action. They signed this year’s prize, Masahiro Tanaka.

7 years, $155 million, for an average of $22.14 per year.
