Junichi Tazawa has agreed to a contract with the Saitama Musashi Heat Bears of the Route Inn Baseball Challenge League in Japan.

Tazawa was released by the Reds in early April after previously joining the club on a non-guaranteed minor league contract. The 34-year-old former Red Sox setup man has probably already thrown his last pitch in Major League Baseball. Jul 22 8:41 am (EST)
