FILE - In this Nov. 1, 2007, file photo, Nippon Ham Fighters starter Yu Darvish reacts on the mound after yielding a walk in the fifth inning of Game 5 at the Japan Series at Nagoya Dome in Nagoya, central Japan, Pro baseball teams can't negotiate with young Jajpanese players until they've finished high school at the age of 18. There is an amateur draft every fall. Heavily scouted teenage players often turn pro straight out of high school, a route that set Darvish and Daisuke Matsuzaka en route to the majors. Other talented players join corporate leagues or go to college to develop their games before signing with professional teams. (AP Photo/Toru Takahashi, File)
