Yu Darvish has announced that he will be posted today.
The star Japanese right-hander will be expensive for the team with the highest bid. If the New York Yankees were that team, they would have to pay his posting fee and his contract. The good news is his posting fee will not count toward a team's payroll or luxury tax.
Darvish will probably cost north of $100 million total but he has incredible upside that could make him worth even more. Many people are wary giving Japanese pitchers millions of dollars but I think Darvish is different. Let's see why.
