MLB Rumors: Insider Links 7 Specific Teams To Shohei Ohtani

Shohei Ohtani, the acclaimed two-way superstar in the MLB, has become a highly sought-after free agent, sparking interest from several top-tier teams.

Jon Heyman of the New York Post has reported that three teams, the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, and Chicago Cubs, appear to be making significant efforts to acquire Ohtani.

The Cubs are particularly noted as a strong contender, with a suggestion that Ohtani has a fondness for Southern California.

Additionally, Heyman has mentioned other teams in the mix for Ohtani, including the San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox, and New York Yankees.

These teams are described as being "linked" to Ohtani, though seemingly not with the same intensity as the first three.

Ohtani is fresh off another MVP season, posting a .304/.412/.654 triple-slash line, with 44 home runs 95 RBIs 95 stolen bases, and 102 runs scored across 135 games played.

As a pitcher, he recorded a 3.14 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, with 167 strikeouts over 132 innings and 23 starts.

The situation remains fluid, with the Los Angeles Angels also in the background, hoping to retain Ohtani, who is considered one of baseball's greatest talents​. Photo Credit: Kiyoshi Mio-USA TODAY Sports
