From the News -
Next week, the No. 2 regarded Japanese pitcher, soft-throwing Hanshin Tigers lefty Kei Igawa, who was 14-9 and tied for the Central League in strikeouts last year, goes up for posting, and while the Yankees are expected to make a bid, they regard him as a back-of-the-rotation starter. In other words, they wouldn’t mind having him in the spring training mix, but aren’t going to go overboard for him.
Igawa won strikeout titles over in Japan in 2002, 2004 and 2006. He must have some sort of stuff, no?
