Ohtani, please stay I’ll do everything I can to stay Trout Otani’s Declaration of Defense
Mike Trout launched an operation to defend Shohei Otani.
The U.S. ESPN said on the 16th (Korea Standard Time), “The LA Angels will do everything they can to keep Ohtani in the next nine months.” Trout helps from the side,” he reported. Trout joined the Angels Spring Camp and declared, “I will do everything I can to help Otani stay with the Angels.”
Otani will qualify for FA at the end of this season. Otani, who has already become an “expensive body” with an annual salary of $30 million, is considered to be the first player in Major League history to lead a “super mega deal” worth $500 million. Last year, he left an unprecedented record of filling both regular innings as a pitcher and regular at-bats as a batter, and left all-star-class performances in both positions.
Although he finished second in the MVP voting, trailing 62 home runs and clean hitter Aaron Judge (Yankees), he batted .273 OPS 0.875 in 157 games as a batter, 34 home runs, and 15 wins, 9 losses, and a 2.33 ERA in 166 innings as a pitcher.
ESPN said, “Otani will give unprecedented strength to the team that takes him. The industry expects him to win the largest contract in Major League Baseball history and exceed $500 million, he added.
“The LA Dodgers and the New York Mets seem to be the leading teams in the Otani race, but I believe the Angels also have a chance. Their weapon is Trout,” he wrote.
Trout said, “The most important thing is that Ohtani should do what he thinks is right for him. It’s all up to him. If Otani wants to stay in Anaheim, so be it. If I have any other ideas, I will do everything I can to persuade Ohtani,” he said.
He also said, “We have to think about it seriously. For Otani, it’s probably the biggest decision of his life. A lot of things change when you leave here. The team atmosphere and members are different. As I said earlier, I will do my best to leave Ohtani here 토토
Trout is also well aware that what Ohtani wants is a “winning team.” Trout said, “(Otani’s push to stay) is another reason why we have to win and advance to the playoffs. “I will make Ohtani remember that we are a competitive team,” he stressed.
