Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish ended months of speculation today by saying he intends to make a move to Major League Baseball.And let the bidding begin!
The 25-year-old right-hander, considered the best pitcher in the Japanese professional leagues, wrote on his blog that he had decided to use the posting system, which allows MLB teams to bid for the negotiating rights to Japanese players who have yet to become free agents.
"I have decided to use the posting system," he said. "I wanted to tell my fans directly, so that is why I am posting this on my blog."
"I owe a lot of thanks to my team," Darvish said, adding he would provide more details at an upcoming news conference.
