"It's like I see both Ichiro and Hideki Matsui in Shohei Ohtani", Kuriyama said.

Ohtani will serve a dual role with the Angels, not only pitching but hitting on a regular basis.

In his 21 year career in Japan, from 1959 to 1980, Oh set and crushed records handily in the Japan Central League, and in Japanese Baseball overall.

What we do know is that Ohtani will have the chance to try being an elite hitter and an elite pitcher. Pete Rose, usually not a fan of Japanese baseball players, is quoted in Oh's biography as thinking he would have hit.300 in MLB. This doesn't change anything.

Now, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports is reporting that his decision could come by early next week.

Yesterday, it was reported that Shohei Ohtani had completed all of his meetings with the final seven teams vying for his love and attention.

Shohei Ohtani is a great player.

Shohei Otani, known as the "Japan's Babe Ruth", has signed with the Los Angeles Angels. However, plenty of reports question if the Giants have a deep enough farm system to entice Miami into a trade. It is a possibility that the two teams could land one player each. "His ability to go multiple innings, go back-to-back days, spot start, all the things he's done are incredibly valuable to us".

OK, that's a quick view of the Dodgers. This is what baseball is supposed to look like. Martin Maldonado was the best defensive catcher in the American League. That the Mariners not only lost out on Ohtani but lost out on him to a division rival that used to employ their current GM, Jerry Dipoto has to be a pretty bitter pill to swallow. Again, this is a team that finished 17 games under.500 last season and it is a year older. The Halos have not yet confirmed the news themselves.

"In the end, he felt a strong connection with the Angels and believes they can best help him reach his goals in Major League Baseball", Balelo said in a statement. Theoretically, the Dodgers can pay all of Stanton's contract but, realistically, they probably won't. But the Angels' newest international star remains a viable option as both as a designated hitter as well as an important new part of the Angels' pitching rotation. Also, Ohtani's versatility as a solid bat and reliable outfielder make him a unique, hard-to-find value in a single player. He will be paid nothing for his labor, a crime for which both Major League Baseball and the Players' Association are responsible. Two entirely different stories.

The wait is now over: Ohtani joins Mike Trout in Anaheim to become a member of the Los Angeles Angels. That was the third largest pool, behind the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners. So are Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, and Yu Darvish, among others. That earned him the league MVP award. Last season still happened. Banuelos, 21, hit.236 with four home runs in 36 games for the Class A Everett (Wash.) AquaSox after signing in July.
