Hideki Okajima will remain a member of the Boston Red Sox! (For at least 1 more year). The Red Sox re-signed Okajima to a 1 year deal worth 1.75 Million. Okajima’s record of 16-8 and 6 saves (3.06 ERA) in 254 relief appearances in four years with the Red Sox was appreciated by all the fans.
Okajima started out as a very popular player and quickly earned a reputation as a serious pitcher in the Red Sox organization.
Personally, I am glad to see that Okajima has another chance with the Red Sox. He has the potential to earn a well deserved spot after this year… uncertain of the re-signing of free agent, Jonathan Papelbon.
A lot of questions have been answered for 2011, but it seems like there are a lot of questions for 2012. Theo Epstein has a method behind his madness, he always does.
