Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports writes that Masahiro Tanaka not using the opt-out clause in his contract "does not seem like such a safe assumption anymore."
Heyman says that "there had been an assumption by many" that Tanaka would not opt out of the three years and $67 million remaining on his deal with the Yankees, but the righty could be re-evaluating things following his brilliant run this postseason. Tanaka, who turns 29 in a couple weeks, would surely be able to get more than three years and $67 million on the open market even though he's been pitching with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament for a few years. Heyman was told by a Yankees source that the club wouldn’t "chase" Tanaka if he did opt out, although he was told that prior to Tanaka's superb showing during the playoffs. The Yanks "are determined to get below the $197 million luxury tax threshold" this offseason, according to Heyman. Oct 20 - 9:41 AM
