Over the past few days, it has become clear that pitcher Masahiro Tanaka is set to return to Japan for the 2021 season.
This is what happened in the end. His lifelong teammate Raguden Eagles has joined hands in his services.
The team announced the signing of Tanaka’s seven big seasons in New York.
It will be recalled that if the Yankees do not bring him back, he is less likely to sign elsewhere in the MLP. This eventually happened despite the interest of a team like Buttress.
We know the startup was targeting a one-year contract. In a letter to his fans, he announced that he had reached an agreement for the 2021 season.
What does this mean for 2022? I do not know.
At least, he enjoyed his time in New York very much, but he feels very comfortable returning to Japan in the current circumstances.
Can he use the opportunity to go to the Olympics and go back to his country? Chances are good, yes.
Congratulations to him.
