Thus tweeteth David Lennon.
Source confirmed that Hisanori Takahashi is indeed headed to #Mets, as first reported by NY Times' Dave Waldstein.
The left-handed Takahashi will be 35 in April and has been a full-time starter with the Yomiuri Giants since 2000, excepting the 2006 season when he came out of the bullpen. Here are his NPB stats, courtesy JapaneseBallplayers.com.
12:12pm: NKOTB David Waldstein at the NY Times believes that it is a minor-league deal that would be worth $1 million if Takahashi makes the big-league roster. Tak could earn another $500k in performance bonuses.
