Tazawa nears decision as Rangers make offer
Highly regarded amateur pitcher Junichi Tazawa received a lucrative offer from the Texas Rangers on Monday and is expected to decide on his future shortly, his manager said.
"Now that these offers are on the table, a conclusion will be reached in three or four days," Hideaki Okubo, manager of Tazawa's Nippon Oil team, said after talks with the Rangers, which followed recent meetings with the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox and Seattle Mariners.
According to sources close to Tazawa, the Red Sox appear to be the front-runners in the race for his services, and Okubo hinted that Tazawa is hoping to choose his destination as soon as possible.
"It seems to me that Tazawa does not necessarily need to meet any further teams," Okubo said.
