The future of Shohei Ohtani, who will be eligible for free agency, is of interest to players across Major League Baseball. The Los Angeles Dodgers are the favorite to land him.
The Athletic released the results of a survey of 103 major league players from 22 teams on Tuesday (June 20). When asked, “If you were in charge of a team, who would be the first player you would sign,” 45.6 percent of players chose Ohtani. This is because he is a “one-for-one” deal, meaning he is both a pitcher and a hitter.메이저사이트
It is also interesting to see where Ohtani will go as his price tag is skyrocketing ahead of free agency. With his star quality and star power, Ohtani could become the first free agent in Major League Baseball history to sign a $500 million contract.
The Los Angeles Dodgers were the favorite team for Ohtani to play for. A whopping 52.7% of players said the Dodgers. The Los Angeles Angels followed at 11.4%, San Diego at 7.2%, the New York Mets at 7.2%, and the New York Yankees at 6.3%.
One player summarized it simply: “Who has the most money?” The battle for Ohtani will ultimately be a money game.
