Masahiro_Tanaka_2013 [1]The Los Angeles Angels recently scouted Masahiro Tanaka and are considering a pursuit of the undefeated Japanese pitcher this offseason, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Angels had a scout in Japan last week to watch Tanaka, who could cost the team a posting fee of $25 million, according to the paper.

The Dodgers have also scouted the Japanese right-handeder, a source told ESPNLosAngeles.com’s Mark Saxon.

The Dodgers signed a 19-year-old Japanese prospect, Takumi Numata, to a minor league deal Monday. They likely scouted Tanaka while they were there.
