Texas had 30 days to sign Darvish after winning the exclusive negotiating rights to him by committing a $51.7 million posting fee. Had the deal not been completed, the Nippon-Ham Fighters, Darvish’s old team, would have to return the posting fee.

Darvish will now be tasked with replacing former Rangers ace C.J. Wilson in the Texas rotation.
