There is a prospect that the Los Angeles 먹튀검증 Angels, who decided not to trade Shohei Ohtani (29), will try to renew the free agent contract in the coming winter.
On the 27th (Korean time), the Angels traded minor league prospect catcher Edgar Quero and left-handed pitcher Kai Bussy in exchange for All-Star starting pitcher Lucas Giolio and reliever Reinaldo Lopez from the Chicago White Sox.
As soon as he obtained FA qualification at the end of this season, he recruited two power pitchers and showed his will to challenge fall baseball. The Angels are a team that has not played fall baseball for the longest time, along with the Detroit Tigers, with the last postseason advance in 2014.
The Angels, who are on the rise with 6 wins and 1 loss in the last 7 games, are ranked 6th in the American League (AL) wild card with 52 wins and 49 losses (. .553) is within range by four games.
The trade on this day was made after a report from ‘Sports Illustrated (SI)’ that the Angels received various offers, but after internal discussions, they decided to retain Ohtani rather than sell it.
‘ESPN’ also predicted that day, ‘The Angels owner Arte Moreno, who has refused both the Ohtani trade and the sale of the club for the past year, is expected to renew the contract with Ohtani in the upcoming offseason.’
“Sources said Ohtani wanted to stay with the team for the rest of the season for the postseason, and Moreno’s owner believed that if Ohtani was traded to another team, he would not be able to bring him back to free agency,” he added.
It is that he did not sell Ohtani in the summer trade market with the free agency renewal in mind this winter. The Angels will have to spend at least 500 million dollars to catch Ohtani, but it is also important to have a winning record. For the rest of the season, he showed a strong will by signing Giolito and Lopez.
