Tazawa update

The Japanese baseball-centric website NPBtracker.com reports that, according to various Japanese media sources (namely, Nikkan Sports, Mainichi, and Sponichi), 22-year-old righthander Junichi Tazawa is “set to sign with the Red Sox,” possibly as early as a week from today. 

Pair this with the usual grain of salt.

The website reports that Tazawa has received the following offers (all major league contracts — which just means 40-man roster inclusion rather than a guaranteed April assignment to the big league club):

    *  Boston: 3 years, $3 million
    *  Seattle: 3 years, $3 million
    *  Atlanta: 4 years, $4-5 million
    *  Texas: 4 years, $7 million
