Red Sox and RHP Junichi Tazawa avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.375 million contract.
When arbitration figures were exchanged last Friday, the Sox offered $2.7 million, while Tazawa asked for $4.15 million. They found a middle ground on Wednesday. In 2015, the 29-year-old reliever pitched to a 4.14 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 56/13 K/BB ratio across 58 2/3 innings. It was the first time he had posted an ERA north of 3.20 since he became a regular arm in the Boston bullpen back in 2012. Jan 20 - 7:45 PM
