REPORT: D'Backs Offer Tanaka $120M/6 Yrs.

The new favorite to land the services of Japanese hurler Masahiro Tanaka might be the Diamondbacks. Multiple reports suggest that Tanaka will command around $120 million over six years—and that Arizona has made such an offer. With the Cubs chances suddenly taking a nosedive and the Angels claiming he might be out of their range, it could come down to the D'Backs, the Dodgers and The Evil Ones. Tanaka's decision could come as early as tomorrow—to allow enough time for medicals before the Friday deadline.
