Shohei Ohtani, who has been leading the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim with a “two-hit job,” may be leaving the team.
The LA Times published an article on April 22 (Korea time) titled ‘Enjoy the magic, Angels fans. Shohei Ohtani’s time in Anaheim may be coming to an end,” and mentioned the possibility of Ohtani being traded.
Ohtani made his last start on April 22 against Minnesota, pitching six innings of one-run ball in a 4-2 victory. The Angels are 8-2 in Ohtani’s last 10 starts.
According to the LA Times, “When Ohtani becomes a free agent after this season, he has the ability to demand and get not just the moon but the Milky Way. There aren’t many days left for him to work his mesmerizing magic in Anaheim.”토토사이트
The possibility of Ohtani changing teams ahead of the trade deadline at the end of July has also been raised. If the Angels’ chances of making the playoffs diminish, Ohtani could be for sale. It’s much more realistic to move a player on the verge of free agency to add a prospect or immediate depth at a position of weakness than to compensate with a pick in free agency.
In the U.S., it is unlikely that the Angels will be able to land Ohtani, who will cost at least $500 million.
