Marlins reel in reliever Tazawa
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.
