Darvish announcement coming Monday night
All the speculation surrounding Japanese phenom Yu Darvish is expected to end tonight.
It will be Tuesday morning in Japan when the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters make the announcement of which MLB club has won the bid for the young pitcher and whether it will be accepted. SI.com has reported that the bid exceeds the $51.1 million bid for Daisuke Matsuzaka in 2006 as the highest in the history of posting of Japanese players.
CBSSports.com reported that the bid will be accepted, and many have speculated that the winning bid belongs to the Blue Jays or Rangers.
On Monday night, it will no longer be speculation.
