Shohei Otani Sends Memo To Each Team To Determine Potential Fit

Shohei Ohtani hasn't signed with a Major League Baseball yet, but he's already doing his homework in preparation for his fleet to the United States.

The agent for the star pitcher and outfielder asked for written explanations in English and Japanese on how Ohtani would fit into each organization intending to bid and what makes the team attractive, according to details obtained by The Associated Press.

Ohtani has become one of the most sought-after worldwide free agents due to his ability to both pitch and hit at a high level.

Each team was asked to provide its answers in both languages as soon as possible. And beginning December 1, teams will be able to pay the $20 million posting fee to try to sign the player. The Rangers have the most available money at $5.35 million followed by the Yankees at $3.5 million.

Other teams viewed as possibilities include Seattle ($1,557,500) and the Los Angeles Dodgers ($300,000). As a batter, he hit a career-high.332 with eight home runs and 31 RBIs across 65 games.

A tentative agreement was reached on Tuesday between Nippon Professional Baseball, MLB and the players' union to maintain the existing posting agreement for this offseason, which would include Otani, with an additional three-year deal beginning after next season in which Japanese teams would be compensated based on a percentage of the contract the player garners.

He has a 42-15 record with a 2.52 ERA and 624 strikeouts in 543 innings over five seasons, and a.286 batting average with 48 homers and 166 RBI.
