Johjima Reaches Agreement With Hanshin Tigers

Catcher Kenji Johjima reached an agreement with the Hanshin Tigers, according to reports passed along by NPB Tracker's Patrick Newman.  One of the reports indicates it's a four-year deal worth around $27MM (the AP says $21MM).  It seems that Johjima actually topped the two years and $16MM left on his Mariners contract.

Perhaps the Ms will reallocate some of Johjima's money toward free agents.  We analyzed their needs in our Offseason Outlook yesterday.
