China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

A source fa­mil­iar with the sit­u­a­tion said on Thurs­day that free agent re­liever Ju­nichi Tazawa has agreed to a twoyear con­tract with the Mi­ami Mar­lins, worth $12 mil­lion.

The source con­firmed the deal on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause the con­tract won’t be fi­nal­ized un­til Tazawa passes a phys­i­cal.

The right-han­der will earn $5 mil­lion next sea­son and $7 mil­lion in 2018.

Tazawa has been with the Bos­ton Red Sox since his rookie sea­son in 2009 and has a ca­reer ERA of 3.58.

He had a 4.17 ERA in 49 in­nings this past sea­son and earned $3.4 mil­lion.
