Shohei Ohtani Will Be Pursued By Yankees, Red Sox, Mets, Cubs in 2023 Free Agency

Bleacher Report
Should he hit the open market after the 2023 season, Los Angeles Angels star Shohei Ohtani will be on the radar for just about every team that can afford to sign him, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.“I don’t want to say he’s going to the Dodgers next year because every team…listen, the Yankees are gonna be on him,” Passan said Wednesday on The Pat McAfee Show. “Steve Cohen, the Mets owner, the Mets are gonna be in on him. The Cubs are gonna be in on him. The Pirates are not gonna be in. … Yeah, Red Sox will be on him.”

Ohtani is a truly generational two-way talent who followed up his 2021 Most Valuable Player season by being nearly just as good in 2022.

The 28-year-old had 34 home runs, 95 RBI and a .273/.356/.519 slash line at the plate. On the mound, he went 15-9 with a 2.33 ERA and 219 strikeouts in 166 innings. He was runner-up to Aaron Judge in the MVP voting and placed fourth on the Cy Young ballot.
