“Not bad for a team struggling to achieve consistency in the starting rotation.”
The Toronto Blue Jays are looking for a starting pitcher about 10 days before the trade deadline. CBS Sports mentioned on the 21st (Korean time) that Yusei Kikuchi would go to the bullpen with Ryu Hyun-jin’s return, and that Alec Manoa might be dropped from the starting lineup. It is true that Manoa is insecure, and Kevin Gaussman also skipped the first game of the second half due to a sore side.
But what if Toronto’s trade target is Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels)? It should be seen that the objective possibility is low. This is because Toronto’s prospect depth is not that good. However, on this day, MLB Network John Paul Morosi predicted that a decision on whether to trade Ohtani would not be made until 24 to 48 hours before the deadline.온라인바카라
It means no one knows the outcome. Even John Heyman of the New York Post said, “The rumor of Ohtani being recruited by the Los Angeles Dodgers, which is considered unlikely as a trade partner, is not completely over.” In a situation where many prospects are mixed, there is no law against Toronto acquiring Ohtani. It is very difficult to find an ace like Ohtani.
Bleacher Report picked 8 Ohtani traded dark horses that day. Toronto is included in this list at number 8. If Toronto brings Ohtani, he predicted that the Los Angeles Angels would give Toronto’s top prospects left-hander Ricky Tiedeman, outfielders Dalton Barshaw and Brandon Barraera.
Again, the odds are slim. Bleacher Report also said, “The Angels cannot theoretically ask for a better left-handed pitcher than Tideman. However, since May 5, he has not been able to pitch because of bicepitis. And Basho is the starting outfielder. It is less likely to be offered as it is, and less likely to be accepted.”
However, it is true that it is the best sale with mouth watering in Toronto. Regarding Ohtani, “Not bad for a team struggling to achieve consistency in the starting rotation. He hit 29 more home runs than all left-handed hitters in Toronto. The lineup of Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bisset, Gaussman and One Two Punch. It’s just fun.”
If Ryu Hyun-jin, who has an annual salary of $20 million this year, and Ohtani, who has an annual salary of $30 million, eat together, even for a short period of time, it is sure to attract explosive interest from Korean fans, if nothing else.
