Cubs Given Meeting With Shohei Otani

  • Dear New York Yankees fans It's not Shohei Ohtani it's

And no manager is willing to move players around like Joe Maddon, so Ohtani could play some right field against right-handed pitchers with Jason Heyward shifting over to center. I can't speak for them.

Later Sunday, Red Sox general manager Dave Dombrowski said that Boston is out of the running, as well.

The 23-year-old Ohtani, a star pitcher and hitter who must sign with a major league team by December 22, has begun informing finalists of their meetings, which could run from this Tuesday to Friday.

Ohtani was posted by the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters on Friday. A handful of teams, including San Diego, have been invited to make their pitches to Ohtani and his representatives beginning this week in Los Angeles. The two-way phenom reportedly is looking at a West Coast, small-market team. "But I did get a sense that I can't change that we're a big market and I can't change we're in the East".




It's never quite been clear what it is that Ohtani wants, but we know that it's not money since his age, 23, limits his contract.

Among the teams meeting with Ohtani are the Rangers, who have the most global money to offer ($3.54 million) and the Giants, who have $1.84 million available.

The New York Yankees are not one of the finalists for Japanese star Shohei Ohtani, who has started scheduling meetings with teams for this week that are expected to decide where the ultimate free-agent prize of the offseason lands, sources familiar with the situation told Yahoo Sports. And the Cubs have only about $300,000 to offer in global bonus money because they overspent their allotment a year ago. Ohtani-mania, however, appears will not be coming to Denver unless he is sitting in the visitor's dugout or bullpen.
