The most anticipated free agency in Major League Baseball is underway as two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani is able to sign with any team. Ohtani, currently the best player in the sport, is expected to win his second American League MVP award on Thursday night. Ohtani posted a 10-WAR season in 2023 in 135 games for the Los Angeles Angels. He had a league-leading 1.066 OPS (184 OPS+) and 44 home runs at the plate, and a 3.14 ERA (142 ERA+) with 167 strikeouts in 132 innings on the mound. Ohtani will not pitch in 2024 after undergoing elbow surgery, but he could very well establish a new record for the richest contract in league history -- one that might exceed $500 million.
CBS Sports will update you with the latest developments and rumors from Ohtani's free agency as they become available. Follow the latest news below.
