Japanese right-hander Junichi Tazawa and the Boston Red Sox have failed to reach an agreement on a salary for next season after the two sides exchanged arbitration figures on Friday.

Tazawa was among the 156 players who filed for arbitration on Jan. 12 and is still left without a contract after he submitted a figure of $4.15 million, while the American League club’s counter offer was $2.7 million, according to an AP report.
