Reporter Heyman emphasizes that right elbow surgery has no effect
Various rumors are flying around regarding the departure of pitcher Shohei Ohtani, who became a free agent from the Angels. John Heyman, a reporter for the American newspaper “New York Post,” suggested that he might leave Shintenchi within a year.
Two experts and reporter Heyman made their predictions. Due to right elbow surgery, he will focus on playing as a fielder next season, but he asserted, “That won’t prevent me from reaching a record-breaking contract.” “I’m not sure if it’s true, but some people speculate that Ohtani already knows which team he’s interested in even before he hears all the offers,” he said.
Heyman says that in addition to the Dodgers, who are said to be strong candidates, “the Giants, Rangers, Cubs, Red Sox, Padres, Mets, Yankees, Mariners, and Angels have connections to some degree.”
The first specialist has an 11-year contract worth $535 million (approximately 80 billion yen), and the second specialist has a 10-year contract worth $400 million (approximately 59.8 billion yen) with the right to terminate the contract after the 2024 season. ), Heyman predicted a 10-year contract worth $600 million (approximately 89.7 billion yen). If Otani were to exercise his right to terminate his contract, he would become a free agent again in just one year, but since Otani is hungry for victory, the team’s results will likely be greatly affected.
