The prevailing prediction is that Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Angels),
who qualified as a free agent (FA) in the American Professional Baseball (MLB),
will head to the Los Angeles Dodgers next door.
MLB.com reported on the 8th (Korean time) a summary of recent articles observing Ohtani’s next destination.
ESPN reporter Buster Olney cited a Dodgers source and said, “Dodgers President Andrew Friedman is obsessed with Ohtani,” and added, “He will bring Ohtani to Los Angeles.” 카지노사이트
John Heyman, a columnist for the New York Post, analyzed on Twitter,
“The Dodgers’ decision not to offer a qualifying offer to JD Martinez (who became a free agent)
was a decision taken into consideration about recruiting Ohtani.”
In order to secure space for Ohtani, Martinez, who was in the same designated hitter position, was not kept.
Ohtani and Martinez were selected as All-Stars in the American League (AL) and National League (NL) designated hitter categories this year.
MLBTradeRumors.com, which covers MLB transfer news,
specifically predicted that Ohtani would sign with the Dodgers for $528 million over 12 years.
Fox Sports reporter Disha Tosa explained, “By signing with the Dodgers,
Ohtani can play in the postseason and remain in the time zone he has become accustomed to over the past six years (without the time zone change).”
Ohtani created a syndrome by becoming the first MLB player to fill both regulation innings and at-bats at the same time,
and recording double-digit wins and home runs for two consecutive years,
but his original team, the Los Angeles Angels, has not been able to play fall baseball even once since 2015.
On the other hand, the Dodgers are a strong team that has advanced to the postseason for 11 consecutive years since 2013.
Some believe that Shohei Ohtani will join the World Series champion Texas Rangers in a similar vein.
The Athletic said, “Ohtani will surprise the world by signing with world champion Texas,” and added,
“Texas will give Ohtani the largest amount of money in sports history, beating out the (competitors) Dodgers and Seattle Mariners.”
As a batter this season, Ohtani posted a batting average of 0.304, 44 home runs, 95 RBI, 20 stolen bases,
an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 1.066, and as a pitcher,
he went 10-5, with an ERA of 3.14 and 167 strikeouts. 카지노사이트 백링크
