MLB Insider Believes Shohei Ohtani Will Sign With Dodgers, Predicting Ohtani’s Contract

We are almost two months into the MLB season, which means we’re now two months closer to the offseason of Shohei Ohtani.

The Angels two-way superstar will be a free agent in about five months from now, free to sign with any MLB team for the first time in over five years.

The Dodgers have been considered one of the favorites to land the superstar since the Ohtani talk began, as they can offer him a chance to stay nearby and an opportunity to win.

The Dodgers were quiet this past offseason as they tried to clear the books for Ohtani, however, none of it will matter if he elects to sign elsewhere in the offseason.

Fortunately, our very own Doug McKain has all the latest rumors on Ohtani, including an exclusive interview with MLB insider, ESPN’s Buster Olney, on all the Ohtani talk. The video is absolutely must watch if you want the latest on Ohtani, including expert predictions on where he’ll end up.

You can watch the video by clicking the video at the top of the article, or by clicking right here.

McKain discusses the $600 million question regarding how much Ohtani is going to command this year, and looks into all the potential contenders to sign him.

Again, for all the latest on the Ohtani sweepstakes, this is the video to watch. And while you’re there, make sure to subscribe to the YouTube Channel to stay up to date on all the latest Dodger news, and all the latest Ohtani/trade deadline rumors.

  1. I don’t understand what makes everyone assume the Dodgers are after Ohtani. He is: A) a pitcher and the Dodgers don’t sign pitchers to long-term contracts and B) a DH which removes flexibility for resting players – see Will Smith. And for that they’re gonna shell out 1/2 billion dollars? I don’t see it.

  2. I personally think signing Ohtani for some huge ass contract would be the dumbest thing the Dodgers could do. Yeah he’s a good player right now but but not worth the money he’s expected to receive.
