25-year old Japanese RHP Yu Darvish has been posted and MLB teams have until 4:00PM CST Wednesday to bid on exclusive negotiating rights. (For an explanation of the posting system, go here).
Darvish is the latest darling hurler of the Nippon Professional Baseball league and he has put up very impressive numbers starting with his age-19 year in 2006. It’s always hard to tell what these numbers mean in terms of MLB success but Darvish has the attention of the baseball world and the winning bid will likely be very large.
