“Texas is Ohtani’s preferred destination.”
The Texas Rangers have emerged as a dark horse in the race to sign Shohei Ohtani (29, free agent). “Ohtani will soon become a free agent and will either negotiate his next destination in Major League Baseball or stay with the California franchise,” AS USA reported on Tuesday.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been the favorite to land Ohtani. However, there is a temperature difference in the details of the American media coverage. There are reports that the Dodgers are the favorite, while others say that the Dodgers are the favorite.
Bleacher Report, for example, went beyond the Dodgers’ speculation on Sept. 29, predicting a $500 million contract for Ohtani. Ohtani’s elbow surgery in late September will keep him out of the rotation next year, and some are skeptical of his longevity as a pitcher, as he has already had two elbow surgeries. This could be the reason why he won’t get the $500 million contract. Bleacher Report refutes this.
However, AS USA reported that Texas is interested in Ohtani, based on a report by John Heyman of the New York Post. MLB Network’s Joel Sherman and The Athletic’s Can Rosenthal said the same thing on their recent podcast, “The Show.카지노사이트
“According to Sherman, Texas is Ohtani’s preferred destination, followed by the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers,” AS USA reported. The New York Mets, Boston Red Sox, and Los Angeles Angels were also mentioned as potential suitors.
While it’s true that Ohtani would prefer to play in the West, Texas is a Mid-South club. That said, the Rangers are in good shape to win the World Series this season. Reports have consistently suggested that Ohtani’s criteria for choosing a team in free agency is more about winning records than geography.
The World Series between the Texas and Arizona Diamondbacks is in full swing. Once the World Series is over, the November Otani drama will begin in earnest.
