Angels Interested in Japanese Star Pitcher Masahiro Tanaka

Angels may sign Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.

The Angels reportedly had a scout in Japan last week to check out pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.

The odds of Tanaka landing in the city of angels has increased assuming the posting system changes go through, which states the Angels would merely have to be one of the top three bidders for Tanaka.

Tanaka is only 24, and he’s 21-0 with a 1.24 ERA this season with the Rakuten Golden Eagles of Japan’s Pacific League.
