    Sounds like he's more of a organizational depth signing with some upside to perhaps make the team as a reliever. As they say you can't have too much pitching and given his age and experience  shouldn't take long to see if he has the stuff to get big league hitters out...El Duque?

    Mornin' Jete..It'll be interesting to see how the rosters of both teams change this offseason.I read the Yankees are going hard after Japanese starting pitcher Mashiro Tanaka who sported a 24-0 record with a 1.27 ERA in Japan.Those are some damn impressive numbers in any league.

    20-0 according to BB Reference, but either way he has solid stats. Only 24 yrs old, doesn't walk many betters, good strikeout to walk ratio, with 7 complete games this year. 95-35 in seven years and has been up since just 18 years of age.

    He'll get big money to sign.

    That's kind of odd.I see where baseball reference has him at 20-0 this year like you said,but several other sites have him at 24-0 like this quote from yahoo:

    "Pitching for the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of Sendai, the 24-year-old right-hander went 24-0 with a 1.24 ERA, according to NESN.com's Owen Ziegler."

    Sports Illustrated has him at 22-0:

    "Some evaluators believe Tanaka, who went 22-0 with a 1.23 ERA for the Pacific League champion Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles, could be the best pitcher ever to come out of Japan."

    Either way,he looks like he could be a force in the near future.

     

    As far as the money to sign goes,I think that'll be a drop in the bucket compared to what his Japanese club gets for the rights to negotiate with him.That's one of the reasons NY will go after him hard,posting fees don't count against the salary cap.

     "Terms of the deal aren't known, but the signing bonus won't count against Boston's international spending cap since Hinojosa is 27 years old....

     Hinojosa throws "a slurvy breaking ball," a fastball in the 88-92 mph range, and another splitter/changeup-type of pitch."

    Maybe his record translates differently from Japanese to English depending on the News source it goes to. Chuckle, Chuckle.  Either way I wonder if the Sox have given him a look. Even if only to raise the bidding price up to make the Evil Empire spend more money against their cap.

    Wonder if having Koji and Tazawa would be enticing for him as well?

    I'd be shocked if the Sox didn't take a shot at Tankada.  Not expecting them to come close to winning, but they should test the waters to see...

    they did the same thing with Darvish and Ryu.. i'd expect them to make a run at him. the size of the aforementioned run probably depends on what the scouts say. A team should always be looking to upgrade their rotation.

     

    i haven't read any scouting reports on the guy yet so im not ready to say whether we should make a serious run at him or not. That is something to delve into during the offseason.

     

    IRT the cuban pitcher: i think this is a decent move. he could play a role in the BP next season and it even looks like he was a starter in Cuba so maybe he could also play an eventual role in the rotation down the road.
