Seems like he will either sign with the Mariners or go back to Japan.
He should be a steal since he's so young (link shows his age):

Imagine how good he will be in 60 years when he reaches his peak age. ;-)

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Maybe he has been sent back in time by the Mariners of the future to save the Mariners of the present.

:-D

I hope he signs... the amount of good young catchers is really really low.

I was wondering the same thing... I'm guessing we couldn't expect too much, but pretty decent for a Catcher.

Yeah nothing special. Could be worth a look in leagues that have two catcher spots if he starts on a regular basis.

What were Hideki's numbers before coming over? Just as a comparison... we won't talk about Kaz just to spare Mets fans ;-)

Edit: Just looked them up. Here are Matsui's last 3 years before coming.

.316/.438/.654 42 HR, 108 RBI in 474 AB's

.333/.463/.617 36 HR, 104 RBI in 481 AB's

.334/.461/.692 50 HR, 107 RBI in 500 AB's

And Jojima's numbers the past 3 seasons:

.293/.348/.517 25 HR, 74 RBI in 416 AB's

.330/.399/.593 34 HR, 119 RBI in 551 AB's

.338/.432/.655 36 HR, 91 RBI in 426 AB's

Hmm.. gotta love that jump in SLG and OBP in his last season. Still only 29, I wonder if we can expect a poor-man's version of Hideki? I don't know how bad/good the pitching is in Japan, but his numbers are good none the less. Can anyone who knows japanese baseball chime in on this one?

He could be a decent late round gamble. I'd be higher on him if it wasn't Safeco he was going to (It seems it's either the M's or back to Japan). He'll probably turn out to be a better real player than fantasy, but I would predict something like .280/350/450
The slugging always seems to be the harder to predict when Japanese players come over.

The Seattle Times is reporting that Johjima will sign with the Mariners.

Seattle Times wrote:Scoring the first big-name free-agent signing of the offseason, the Mariners will announce the signing of catcher Kenji Johjima, possibly as soon as today.

Sources say that Johjima has agreed to terms with Seattle. His name is much bigger in Japan, where he has averaged .305 with 30 homers the past five years and won seven straight Gold Gloves.
