Mets, who save words due to rumors of Ohtani Shohei recruitment, is still ripening.
Will the Major League Baseball (MLB)’s “big hand” New York Mets be able to bring Otani Shohei (29, LA Angels) after the end of the 2022 season?
MLB network John Heyman predicted on the 30th, “The Mets will jump into the recruitment competition when Ohtani comes to the market next winter.”
Shohei Ohtani, who became a sensation in MLB due to his pitching and hitting, will qualify as a free agent (FA) after the end of the 2023 season. With the FA’s biggest fish already booked, many words are already being exchanged over his next destination. The Mets are also often mentioned as a team that will jump into the recruitment of Ohtani.
The reason why the Mets are steadily connected to Shohei Otani is because of his moves in the winter transfer market. Mets owner and billionaire Steve Cohen reigned as a “big hand” in the FA market based on his strong financial power.
This winter alone, Justin Verlander (2 years 86 million dollars), Jose Quintana (2 years 26 million dollars), Senga Godai (5 years 75 million dollars), Edwin Diaz (120 million dollars) and Jeff McNeill (4 years 50 million dollars) signed a series of top players to strengthen their power. 안전공원
Although it did not lead to a final contract, it also bet $315 million over 12 years on recruiting Carlos Correa (Minansas Twins) for FA shortstop.
