Will Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels), a star of the American Major League’s two-hit game, be traded this year? The American media is looking at the possibility of Ohtani’s trade.
The US’Sports Illustrated’ said on the 23rd (Korean time), “If Ohtani is on the Boston Red Sox roster, it will immediately become a playoff contender.”
Boston is in fourth place in the American League East this season. The 1st place Tampa Bay Rays, 2nd place Baltimore Orioles, and 3rd place New York Yankees are tough.
However, with Ohtani who can be of great help to the starting lineup and offense, Boston can definitely be different. The media said, “Ohtani is an imminent free agent,” and “can be traded at the trade deadline.”
Ohtani will be eligible for free agency at the end of this season. If the Angels’ chances of making the playoffs decline before then, Ohtani could be traded. In addition, when Ohtani obtains free agent status, his ransom is expected to exceed 500 million dollars (approximately 660 billion won).
He was even predicted to have a 10-year contract. It is said that there are quite a few teams targeting Ohtani, not only Boston but also the LA Dodgers.먹튀검증
The media said, “One expert believes that Boston is likely to be Ohtani’s destination this summer.”
Ohtani is 5-1 with a 3.05 ERA in 10 appearances as a pitcher this season. In 47 games as a hitter, he has a batting average of 2.8, 2.1, 11 home runs, 32 runs batted in, .530 slugging percentage, and .358 on-base percentage.
As a pitcher or hitter, a typo can help a team improve. He is being valued as a player worth at least $500 million a decade.
