There is a prospect that Shohei Ohtani (29) of the Los Angeles Angels will receive a contract worth 600 million dollars (about 792.8 billion won) this coming winter.

Japanese media Tokyo Sports said on the 10th, “Experts covered Ohtani’s next season on a TBS broadcast program,” and reported the size of Ohtani’s contract predicted by experts.

Ohtani is a special star who unanimously won the 2021 American League MVP. Last season, he also ranked second in the MVP vote, and this season, as a hitter, he has a batting average of 303.3 (11 hits in 33 at-bats), 3 home runs, 8 RBIs, 1.103 OPS in 9 games as a hitter, 2 games (12 innings) as a pitcher, and an ERA of 0.75. .

It is expected that Ohtani, who will become a free agent after the end of this season, will sign a super-large contract ranging from a minimum of 500 million dollars (approximately 659.9 billion won) to a maximum of 600 million dollars. Spottrak, an American media specializing in professional sports contracts, reported that Ohtani received 230 million dollars (approximately 303.6 billion won) for 8 years as a pitcher and 333 million dollars (approximately 439.5 billion won) for 10 years as a hitter for a total of 563 million. It was expected to receive US dollars (about 743 billion won). 메이저사이트

Regarding the prospect that Ohtani will receive 600 million dollars, Seiichi Uchikawa, who recorded 2,182 hits in Nippon Professional Baseball, said, “It is not a surprising number if the pitcher’s annual salary is 3.4 billion yen (30 million dollars) and the batter’s annual salary is 3.4 billion yen. Ohtani is a top-class player on both sides of the pitch.” Baseball expert Hiromi Makihara also said, “Among the best pitchers and hitters, there are players who earn 4 billion yen (40 million dollars) each. If you add the two together, it is 8 billion yen.”

Big market clubs such as the Dodgers, Yankees, Mets, San Francisco, and San Diego are being discussed as potential contract teams for Ohtani. The opinions of Japanese experts were not very different. Makihara said, “I think teams like the Dodgers or San Diego would be better than teams like the Yankees where the weather is cold.” In response, the program MC said, “If you go to San Diego, you will be on the same team as Darvish Yu. It’s great,” he replied in an excited tone.
