Otani, Fujinami Selected In NPB Draft: MLB Rumors - MLBTradeRumors.com

Shohei Otani won’t be able to sign with a MLB team until April 2013.

The Fighters won’t necessarily be able to sign Otani, who has said he intends to pursue a career in MLB. They have until the end of March to agree to terms with the hard-throwing prospect under an agreement between MLB and NPB. If Otani declines to sign with the Fighters, MLB teams will be able to bid on him as a free agent, though they’ll be subject to international spending restrictions.
