Is this the power of “Superb”? Agent Ohtani called the clubs out of the general manager’s meeting
In an article published on Wednesday, USA Today summarized the meeting of Major League Baseball’s general managers, which took place from July 7 to 9 at a resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.
The media outlet singled out Shohei Ohtani’s agent, Nezu Valero, for making the “smartest decision.
According to the report, Valero did not show up for the general managers’ meeting. He stayed at a different hotel and had officials escorted out of the venue when meeting with clubs.
As a result, Valero was able to avoid the intense media attention that was present at the event.
This was in contrast to other big-name agents, such as Scott Boras and Joel Wolf, who were on hand to meet with reporters.토토사이트
That’s because he’s Ohtani’s agent. Ohtani, who has surpassed Babe Ruth as the league’s best two-way player, has been a hot commodity despite an elbow injury that will keep him from pitching in 2024.
USA Today acknowledged that Ohtani’s agent was successful in keeping the meeting confidential, saying, “Not a single team has acknowledged even discussing Valero.”
The outlet also reported on the early stages of the bidding war for Ohtani.
They reported that some team executives expect Ohtani to sign with the Chicago Cubs or Texas Rangers if he doesn’t sign with the Los Angeles Dodgers or his original team, the Los Angeles Angels. The San Francisco Giants would be the favorite, but they were not expected to be successful in landing him.
There are some teams that have backed out of the race for Ohtani early on. The New York Mets are one of them.
The outlet reports that the Mets realize they don’t have a realistic chance of landing Ohtani and are instead eyeing Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Ohtani’s former Japanese national teammate.
