|Rangers, Kensuke Tanaka agree to minor-league deal |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(12/18/13) The Rangers have agreed to a minor-league deal with outfielder/second baseman Kensuke Tanaka that includes an invitation to spring training, NPBTracker.com reports.
Spending his first year stateside in 2013, Tanaka, 32, went 8 for 30 for the Giants last season while hitting .329/.400/.397 with one home run, 32 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 343 at-bats with Triple-A Fresno.
|Kensuke Tanaka released by Giants |

(9/5/13) Giants utility man Kensuke Tanaka has been released Thursday.
Tanaka was designated for assignment Tuesday, but the team chose to get rid of him. He was hitting a solid .329/.400/.397 line at Triple-A, and could be picked up by another club.
|Kensuke Tanaka optioned to Triple-A |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(7/29/13) The Giants have optioned Kensuke Tanaka to Triple-A Fresno Monday, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The 32-year-old outfielder posted a .267 batting average over 30 at-bats with two RBI.
|Kensuke Tanaka needs more Fantasy owners |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(7/22/13) Kensuke Tanaka has been up with the Giants for nine games now, and he has started seven of those, but he has gone largely unnoticed in Fantasy circles. His platoon status and .614 OPS is probably off-putting to owners combing the waiver wire, but he could really be of use in NL-only leagues and even some mixed leagues.
Tanaka is hitting just .269 with no extra base hits, and while he probably won't hit for much power, he has the contact skills to be a .300 hitter. Though he has stolen just one base to date, his 20 steals in 78 games at Triple-A Fresno hints at the potential for a Ben Revere-like contribution.
Nando Di Fino implored owners a couple of weeks back to pick up Tanaka, at least in NL-only leagues, but he continues to be largely unowned even in those deep formats. He should post a good walk-to-strikeout ratio, is on the meaty side of a left field platoon with Jeff Francoeur, and is second base-eligible, so Tanaka has appeal beyond the deepest of Rotisserie formats.
