It is widely expected, however unconfirmed, that the Toronto Blue Jays were the team that submitted the highest bid to negotiate for Darvish’s services. Following the Nippon-Ham Fighters’ announcement, the team with the highest bid will have 30 days to reach an agreement with the right-hander. If no agreement is reached, the posting money will be returned and Darvish will remain in Japan.

Last year at the age of 23, Darvish posted a 1.78 ERA with 222 strikeouts in 202 innings pitched. In 25 starts for the Nippon-Ham Fighters, he threw 10 complete games and two shutouts.
