Masahiro Tanaka In Negotiations To Return To Rakuten Eagles (www.mlbtraderumors.com)

Masahiro Tanaka and the Rakuten Eagles are in the “late stages of negotiations,” writes Pete Caldera of NorthJersey.com. An offer does not appear to be made yet, but a report from Sankei Sports suggests Tanaka is close to returning to the Nippon Professional League. Tanaka does not appear to have closed off the possibility of returning to MLB entirely, but opportunities to woo the right-hander may be dwindling. Tanaka played for the Eagles from 2007 to 2013 when he left to join the Yankees. Caldera says that Tanaka’s camp could receive the official offer from the Eagles sometime this week.
