Japanese star Ohtani whittles list of potential teams

It appears star Japanese pitcher Shohei Ohtani won't wind up with the Yankees

The meetings will be held in Los Angeles and are expected to include discussions with the Padres, Mariners, Giants, Rangers, Cubs and perhaps the Angels.

Shohei Ohtani has reportedly eliminated the team with the second-most money, and widely thought to be a favorite, to sign him.

Reports have surfaced that Otani is likely leaning toward a West Coast team in a smaller market, but with Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer's reputation as master salesmen, the Cubs are still very much a threat to land Otani, according to reports. You could say their odds are now one in seven that Japan's version of Babe Ruth, as Ohtani has been called, will play in Seattle.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday night that the agents for Ohtani told him the two-way star is not signing with NY.

"I know that our presentation was excellent", Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. MLB.com and MLB Network insiders reported that the D-backs, Mets, Brewers, Pirates, Red Sox and, most interestingly, the Yankees, were out of the running. "I can't change that that we're a big market and I can't change we're in the East".

The winning team will put up a $20 million posting fee, and Ohtani will enter the 2018 season making the major league minimum of $545,000.

Ohtani is limited to a minor league contract because of restrictions imposed by the MLB collective bargaining agreement.

The Dodgers can only offer Ohtani a $300,000 bonus.

Among the teams meeting with Ohtani are the Rangers, who have the most worldwide money to offer ($3.54 million) and the Giants, who have $1.84 million available. The Angels can offer a $1.31 million bonus.
