Yu Darvish was the subject of a blind bid last week and the results are finally in.

SB Nation reports that the Texas Rangers succesfully outbid teams like the Chicago Cubs, New York Yankess and Toronto Blue Jays. The winning bid to negotiate with Darvish was a cool $51.7 million.

By posting the highest bid, the Texas Rangers now have 30 days to negotiate as major league contract with Darvish. If no deal is made, the posting fee is waived and Darvish will return to the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters.
