According to multiple reports out of Japan, outfielder and starting pitcher Shohei Otani will be posted this winter and play Major League Baseball in 2018.
Otani could maximize his earning potential by waiting one more season to get out from under MLB's international signing regulations, but it sounds like the 23-year-old is ready to make the move. He has batted .346/.416/.574 through 51 games this season for the Nippon Ham Fighters and the right-handed-thrower also boasts a 2.60 ERA and 10.4 K/9 in 522 1/3 career innings. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports identified the Rangers as the "betting favorite" to sign him back in June, but you can bet that just about every MLB team will make a play. Some can be ruled out due to their already-maxed-out international spending budgets. Sep 13 - 12:23 AM
