Tampa Bay Rays hot topics: Blame Shohei Ohtani and Giancarlo Stanton

  • Cubs chosen to meet with Japanese free agent Shohei Ohtani

Informed they made the cut to meet with Shohei Ohtani and his representatives, the Rangers apparently wasted no time in getting some face-to-face time.

For example, the Cardinals, already deep with intriguing outfield options include Stephen Piscotty and Randal Grichuck, are among the teams said to be interested in several of the Rays pitchers - closer Alex Colome and starters Chris Archer and Jake Odorizzi.

Two A.L. teams that could clearly use Ohtani - and fit the description of a smaller market on the West Coast - are the Seattle Mariners and the Los Angeles Angels, who play in Anaheim, Calif. According to reports, several other teams were told the same thing Sunday, including the Twins, Mets and D-backs. Meanwhile, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman expressed disappointment, mixed with resignation, over his team's inability to receive an invitation to make an in-person presentation to Ohtani.


"I did get a sense that I can't change that we're a big market and I can't change that we're in the East".

Later Sunday, Red Sox general manager Dave Dombrowski said that Boston is out of the running, as well.

According to Jim Bowden of Sirius XM, the Giants are meeting with Japanese star Shohei Ohtani in Los Angeles on Monday. The Mariners, Rangers, and Angels are in the mix from the American League. "You move on", Cashman added. Ohtani is limited to a minor league contract because of restrictions imposed by the MLB collective bargaining agreement. However, he chose to come to the US next year, with representatives at CAA guiding the bidding process and the Fighters set for a $20 million posting fee.
