Yu Darvish bid tops Dice-K

The winning bid for Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish will top the $51.1 million the Red Sox paid for the right to speak to Daisuke Matsuzaka, reported Saturday. The amount is not known, nor the winning bidder.

Darvish’s team, the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters do not have to announce the winning bid until Tuesday at 5 p.m. EST. Teams reported to have bid are the Yankees, Blue Jays, Cubs and Rangers, although says six teams have placed bids on the 25-year-old right-hander. Reports have pegged the Blue Jays as the top bidder, but there has been no confirmation of bids or bidders for that matter.

Darvish was 18-7 with a 1.44 ERA and 276/36 K/BB ratio in 232 innings this past year for the Fighters.
