Masahiro Tanaka to remain with NPB’s Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles for 2022 season

Earlier this week, Major League Baseball’s owners voted to lock out the players, bringing the league’s offseason to a halt. Just because MLB is on ice until a new Collective Bargaining Agreement can be ratified by both sides doesn’t mean other leagues around the world are paused.

To wit, the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball announced on Friday that veteran starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka will return to the club for the 2022 season, according to Yahoo! Japan.

Tanaka, 33 years old, is best known to American audiences for the seven seasons he spent as a member of the New York Yankees rotation. Prior to signing a seven-year contract with the Yankees worth $155 million ahead of the 2014 season, he had spent seven years as a member of Rakuten’s roster.
