After many of the interviews covering the probability for The Dodgers to sign Ohtani, We finally have an answer that will change the world of baseball for fans rooting for the Angeles and the Dodgers.

Although it was a big loss for half of the city of Los Angeles, rooting for The Angeles, it was outstanding news for the rest of the city rooting for the Dodgers. A recent report by Jeff Passan from ESPN has uncovered that this has been one of the biggest contracts of baseball history, for a $700 million deal lasting 10 years. 

December 9, we have received posts from both Shohei Ohtani and the official MLB account, none from the Dodgers yet.

With an A-LEading of 44 homers, an Ml-best 1.066, 95 RBI’s, 102 runs and 20 steals on offense, the 29 year old says goodbye to the year 2023 and his Previous team. Posted 3.14 ERA and a 1.06 for his WHIP with 167 strikeouts in 132 innings as a pitcher before having to acquire surgery repairing a tear in his UCL located on his right elbow. 

This injury has been the latest setback for Ohtani since arriving to the Majors and signing with the Angeles after the 2017 season being an international free agent. 

Undergoing the Tommy John Surgery during his Al Rookie of the Year Award- winning camping for the year of 2018.  The following year of 2019 Ohtani did not pitch. 

That incident didn’t stop Ohtani from exceeding every expectation set for him inside the diamond. 

During the year of 2021, Ohtani enjoyed a breakout season, capturing attention of the sporting world with his unmatched two-way success, and making history in every aspect of the game. Having 46 homers with a .956 OPS at plate, and a 3.18 ERa with a 256 K;s on mout, Shohei was named Al MVP. 

The only thing evading him was team success. Shohei has yet to participate in a postgame, missing the playoffs in all six of his seasons with the Angeles. Looking for a different outcome with his career going into the new year with a new team.
