The New York Times' David Waldstein is reporting that the Mets are on the verge of signing a contract with Takahashi Hisanori.

Some details on what the contract might be worth:

Takahashi, who spent the last 10 years with Tokyo’s Yomiuri Giants, chose the Mets over the Dodgers, the Orioles, the Red Sox and the Padres, all of whom offered minor league contracts as well. But the Mets made the strongest offer, believed to be worth about $1 million if Takahashi makes the major league team, with a chance to make roughly an additional $500,000 in performance bonuses.
