Yanks Win Bid on Igawa
By mvyb, 28.11.2006, 21:04

After missing out on star Japanese pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka earlier this month, the Yankees made sure not to let history repeat itself when Kei Igawa became available via the posting system.

Major League Baseball announced on Tuesday night that the Yankees had won the rights to the Japanese left-hander, who has pitched the past eight seasons for the Hanshin Tigers.

Published reports put the winning bid at $25 million, which would be less than half of the $51.1 million it cost the Red Sox to acquire the rights to Matsuzaka. The Yankees would only pay Hanshin the $25 million if they sign Igawa to a contract.

"We have been following Kei Igawa's very successful and accomplished career in Japan," general manager Brian Cashman said in a statement. "We are excited about the opportunity to begin the negotiating process with him."

.
According to this MLB.com article, Igawa is a very succesful starter for the Hanshan Tigers. He was 14-9 with a 2.97 ERA last year. Good stuff!
.
Igawa features a 90-mph fastball and a very decent curveball. The Yanks have 30 days to work out a deal, and I really hope they can get this done. Igawa would be a great (and unexpected) addition to the Bomber rotation.
