Shohei Ohtani turns down Yankees


Despite having nearly $3 million less worldwide signing bonus money ($400,000) to offer Ohtani than teams like the Rangers and Yankees, the Red Sox carried some optimism that they could be the player's choice.

At a charity event tonight, Brian Cashman told Brendan Kuty and Bryan Hoch that Ohtani informed the Yankees he will not sign with them.

The Rangers are hoping to meet with Ohtani, who is in Los Angeles, in the coming days ahead of the winter meetings. The Minnesota Twins have also dropped out, according to Jon Heyman of Fan Rag Sports.

Kevin Davy White finishes third, Grace and Rak-Su final two
Grace has already reaped the benefits of star status as she soared into the iTunes Top Ten with her original track Too Young. Former Fugees star Jean said the boy band were "so incredible I had to jump on a plane to come represent for them, baby".

That previous agreement governs the posting of Shohei Ohtani, which also happened today.

He has until December 22 to sign with a major league team.

Ohtani, of course, will be limited to how much he can be paid because he is a foreign free agent under the age of 25 and is thus subject to the worldwide pool caps provided for under the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Cashman did give some hints about where the Japanese phenom may be heading by saying something about West Coast and small market teams. Ohtani posted a 42-15 record with a 2.52 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in five years as a pitcher. The issue there is both teams are NL clubs and thus might have a hard time finding enough at-bats to satify Ohtani's desire to both pitch and play.

He was limited to just 65 games as a hitter last season, but hit.332 with eight home runs and 31 RBIs.
