1. Masahiro Tanaka
Tanaka has been viewed this off-season as the best pitcher available.
His credentials are good with over 1,000 strikeouts at the age of 25.
Teams must be willing to gamble on Tanaka however; it is unclear whether he can adapt his game to the American big leagues.
He has been compared to Daisuke Matsuzaka and he has only posted a 4.52 ERA in MLB.
