Japanese two-way star Shohei Otani eyes

Right-hander Shohei Otani, the first player to be named to the JapanLeague'sBest Nine team as a pitcher and hitter,said Monday that he wants to give Major League Baseball a shot as soon asthe 2018 DJ LeMahieu Jersey season, the Japan Times reported.Otani, 22, re-signed Monday with the Nippon HamFighters for $2.37 million for 2017 but said he told team officials that he wants to head to North America the following season.MORE: Ranking, tracking every MLB free-agentHe is expected to be a sought-after player. His fastball wasclocked at a Pacific League-record 102.5mph,and herecorded 10 victories in 2016 while alsobatting.322 with 22 home runstoearnleagueMVP honors.I know that the club will respect Chris Rusin Jersey my will whenever I decide I want to go. It is pleasing to get that support and Nolan Arenado Womens Cool Base Jersey Im thankful for it, Otani said. "There are no clear criteria (for when to move). I could have that desire to move next year, and we just talked about how things will go in those moments.First I will give 100 percent for the Fighters next year to be Japans best again. Ill put my soul Antonio Senzatela Jersey into it.Otaniisn't eligible to be a free agent until after the 2021 season, so he'll need the Fighters' approval to negotiate with any MLB team. According to Fox Sports, the Fighters plan to post Otani after this season, butbecause he is younger than 25, he would be subject to the international bonus pool under the new MLB Colorado Rockies Team Purple Jersey collective bargaining agreement. That could significantly limit how much he could sign for if the parties don't find an alternate solution.MLB, union would need to modify CBA for Otani to come as free agent. CBA overrides new posting system MLB must negotiate with Japanese. Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) December 5, 2016
