As a result of a poll conducted by the American sports media The Athletic on major league players, a majority of 57.2% of 96 respondents said, “Ohtani is likely to play for the Dodgers next season.” Only 11.4% answered that they would stay with their current team, the Angels.

Ohtani will qualify as a free agent (FA) after this season. Ohtani, who is a strong candidate for MVP with both pitching and hitting, is dominant in the evaluation that he will sign a contract worth more than 500 million dollars (about 646.5 billion won) for the first time in major league history when he enters the free agent market. In terms of total amount, the largest major league contract is Mike Trout’s 12-year total of $426.5 million (approximately 551.5 billion won). It is evaluated that Ohtani will easily overcome this.

Ohtani, who has been very active this season with a 6-2 ERA on the mound of 3.29 and a batting average of 0.295 (83 hits in 281 at-bats), 24 homers, 58 RBIs and 10 stolen bases on the mound, has the lowest batting average (0.178) among all pitchers in the big leagues, and has a home run as well. 1st place overall At this pace, Ohtani’s MVP and super-large contracts are out of the question.

If Ohtani wears a Dodgers uniform next season, as the players surveyed, the Dodgers will embrace what manager Roberts called “the best player on the planet.”

On the other hand, in the survey, Ohtani’s next most likely destination after the Dodgers and Angels were the San Diego Padres and the New York Mets (7.2%) and the New York Yankees (6.3%). Another survey item, ‘if you were to build a team today, who would you sign a contract with first’, 45.6% of 103 respondents chose Ohtani.
