According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, Japanese pitching and hitting standout Shohei Otani has begun to interview player agents in preparation for a jump to MLB.
It was reported earlier this month that Otani will be posted for MLB teams this offseason. According to Heyman, Otani has been represented by a lawyer during early meetings with prominent agents who have traveled to Japan. The thought is that he could hold a second round of interviews soon, so the process is moving along. Otani is just 23 years old, so he'll be subject to MLB's international spending limit if he's posted. He's only made four starts for the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters this year due to injury, but he's batting .333/.403/.554 with eight homers over 59 games. Sep 26 - 2:21 PM
