The future of the Japanese star Shohei Ohtani in the Angels was one of the unknowns in the MLB. However, and after sitting down with several teams to listen to offers, the Los Angeles team decided to keep the multifaceted Japanese player.

As reported by the MLB portal, the Angels have no intention of giving up their superstar despite the poor position they occupy within their division. The decision is understandable since the Japanese is the one who is bringing some joy to the team and its fans, this because his individual performances continue to stand out in the midst of a really complicated year for the team.

Teams interested in Shohei Ohtani

As reported by journalist Jon Hayman for the New York Post, the teams interested in Ohtani were the Yankees, Padres and White Sox. Given this reality, it was the “Mulos” who offered the best offer, however, apparently it has not materialized.

The aforementioned teams made serious and formal offers for the Japanese, but finally went their way after understanding the position of the owner of the Los Angeles Angels.

Shohei Ohtani will be a free agent in 2023

Ohtani’s permanence in the ninth of the Angels already makes it a fact that the Japanese will become a free agent by 2023.

In this sense, he will have to assess if his future is near or far from Angel Stadium or if, on the contrary, he joins another franchise that offers him the possibility of competing for something else within the best baseball in the world.
