With Masahiro Tanaka out of the free agency market, teams who lost out in the Tanaka sweepstakes are expected to pursue the remaining pitchers available on the market or strike trades with currently-signed starting pitchers.
Masahiro Tanaka is expected to announce his highly-anticipated decision this week and reports said that five teams are in the mix for the free agent Japanese pitcher.
The bidding war for Masahiro Tanaka will come to an end soon, but several teams are making their last push to convince the Japanese pitcher to play with them in the 2014 MLB season.
Masahiro Tanaka has reportedly narrowed down his choices of possible destinations, with reports saying that the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers are now favored to acquire the Japanese pitcher.
The New York Yankees may have some more spending money coming their way for free agency after arbitrator Fredric Horowitz recently handed New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez a 162-game suspension for his involvement in the well-publicized biogenesis scandal.
The bidding war for Masahiro Tanaka is officially on as the Japanese pitcher and his agent started talking to MLB teams on Thursday, a day after arriving in the United States.
The New York Yankees are still considered as the favorite to land Masahiro Tanaka, but the Boston Red Sox could join the bidding war for the highly-coveted pitcher.
