At some point, Shohei Ohtani is going to have a new team.
The Angels are going to try to re-sign him, something they recognize is unlikely to happen.
The current buzz is that the Dodgers are going to bowl him over with an offer and then try to coax the Angels into surrendering Mike Trout.
But it’s not a two-team race. Ohtani reportedly has interest in seeing what the Rangers have to offer, and it’s presumed the Rangers have interest in signing the best player in the world … when healthy.
He’s not healthy. Again.
