Ohtani to sign with Angels


Japanese two-way star Shohei Ohtani will sign with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, his agent announced.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post was first to report the news.

The revised system allowing for the posting of Ohtani, 23, who was equally adept in Japan as both a left-handed hitter and right-handed pitcher in Japan (2.52 career ERA, 30 homers last season), was announced last week and he fielded offers from every major league team before eliminating several, including the Red Sox. 

He was said to be interested in a small-market West Coast team. Click here for more from NBCSports.com’s Craig Calcaterra.
