STL is the team that will go all-in to recruit Ohtani superstar the No. 1 trade possibility
In 2023, it is steadily expected that Ohtani Shohei, a “two-hitter” star, is likely to leave the LA Angels in a trade.
The U.S. media “Fan Said” examined 16 players who are likely to move their teams before the trade deadline among the 2023 Major League players on the 17th (Korea Standard Time). Among them, Otani was the most likely player.
The media said, “Otani is number one. It’s a familiar thing. “Where the Angels are in the rankings will determine whether Ohtani will stay,” he said, asking, “Which team should go all-in to get a superstar?”
Otani started all 28 games as a pitcher last year, recording 15 wins and 9 losses with a 2.33 ERA. As a batter, he batted .273 with 34 home runs and 95 RBIs in 157 games.
Otani, who was the MVP of the American League in 2021, received a lot of attention last year. Aaron Judge became the American League MVP in 2022, but Ohtani was a strong competitor.
The media looked at the possibility of St. Louis Cardinals recruiting such Otani. The media said, “The St. Louis Angels have many excellent hitters in their mid-20s at the level of the Major League.” It is the team that will pose the biggest threat to Ohtani’s recruitment.
Otani is getting the most attention this winter. Having established himself as one of the best “two-hitter” players in Major League Baseball history, he is also expected to become an FA and receive more than $400 million (about 500 billion won) at the end of the 2023 season. He is expected to leave for a new team this year when his contract with the Angels ends 바카라사이트
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Brian Reynolds was mentioned as the second player with a high possibility of trading after Ohtani. Third, Atlanta Braves catcher Travis Dano was named.
