Ken Rosenthal: Shohei Ohtani will leave the Angels


According to the editor of The Athleticphenom Shohei Ohtani will leave the Los Angeles Angels at the end of this campaign.

Ken Rosenthal cannot guarantee it 100%, but he would be greatly surprised if the Ohtani clan decides to continue the link that has existed with the Californian team since the Japanese arrived in the Majors in 2018.

A free agent at the end of the 2023 season, Shohei Ohtani controls his destiny.

Yes of course Arte Moreno, the owner of the club, will go out of his way to make sure to keep this exceptional player in his line-up, but the carrots would already be cooked.

Expect to see Shohei switch teams and even trade possibilities are discussed.

Rosenthal has been associated with the world of baseball for several years now and his credibility is excellent.

Ohtani could stay in California, however, as the Los Angeles Dodgers are highly interested in getting their hands on this unique athlete. Speculation is rife and a contract of more than $600 million for 12 years would not be ruled out.

His salary in 2023 is $30 million. He makes as much money with his various sponsorship contracts.

Speaking of the Japanese, he stood out again yesterday in a game against a division rival when he came within a hit of getting a carousel while also serving as a starting pitcher.

This is the third time this season that this situation has happened in his case.

Although he was ordinary on the mound against the Mariners, giving up three runs in five innings of work, he contributed greatly on offense in a 5-4 victory for the Angels.

Number 17 hit a two-run home run in the third inning against Luis Castillo, his 17th long ball of the season. He also had a single and a double against the Mariners gunners.

Yes, Shohei Ohtani is definitely in a class of his own and he will get richer and richer.
