Another claim was raised that the starting point for free agency ransom for Los Angeles Angels Ohtani Shohei was $500 million.
ESPN reporter Jeff Passan appeared on the YouTube channel ‘The Pat McAfee Show’ on the 28th (Korean time) and said, “If Ohtani builds up the numbers he has achieved over the past two years this season, the contract number will start at $500 million. Only going up from there left,” he said.안전놀이터
Bankan has been listening to the opinions of club officials and agents about Ohtani’s free agent contract since last year as a reporter for ESPN, and has been making predictions. He cited the Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Mets as clubs most likely to recruit Ohtani.
Bankruptcy reporter said, “The Dodgers are joining, Steve Cohen’s New York Mets are joining. The Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres are joining, the Angels are trying to keep him, and the Chicago Cubs are there.” The ridiculous amount of money that will be received will be discussed.”
He continued, “Ohtani is a worthy candidate for MVP just by hitting, but he also has excellent talent as a pitcher, so he is a star that will come out once in a generation.” did.
Last year, Ohtani showed off his spirit by completing both at-bats and innings in one season for the first time in major league history. If it weren’t for Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees, who hit 62 homers, the most in a single season in the American League, he could have been the MVP for two consecutive years.
The logical basis for betting on Ohtani’s free agent contract is basically $500 million, starting from the fact that he plays ‘one man and two roles’ by showing his best skills throughout the pitching.
In an interview recently published by Forbes, former Miami Marlins president David Sampson said, “He’s the first starter and he’s the center hitter. He’s doing two things on the team. Normally, giving one player 20 percent of the payroll isn’t a problem. There is, and it is difficult to win, but Ohtani plays the role of two players with an annual salary of $ 25 million, so $ 50 million is reasonable.” If the payroll is $200 million, Ohtani’s annual salary is equivalent to 25%.
In the midst of this, Ohtani will have his first actual inspection stage ahead of joining the Japanese national team in the World Baseball Classic (WBC). He gets his first start in an exhibition game against the Oakland Athletics at Hohokam Stadium in Mesa, Arizona at 5:05 a.m. on the 1st. Ohtani is scheduled to come to the mound with the goal of 2 innings and 40 pitches, and on the 23rd live pitching, he threw a fastball with a maximum of 97.1 mph, and attention is focused on what kind of pitch he will show in practice.
In particular, since the Auckland selection on this day was Shintaro Fujinami, Ohtani’s rival during the Japanese amateur days, the confrontation between the two also draws attention. Fujinami made his major league debut by signing a one-year, $3.25 million deal with Oakland last winter.
After the match against Auckland, Ohtani will leave the team spring camp on the 3rd and cross the Pacific Ocean to join the Miyazaki camp where the Japanese national team is training.
