Ohtani Signs With Dodgers

2023 Ameican League Most Valuable Player Award Announcement

Not the news we wanted. Shohei Ohtani has signed with the Dodgers. He is getting $700 million over 10 years. That’s even more money than I expected.

There are no reports of opt-outs or anything like that.

I was very hopeful for a bit there. I think we are allowed to be sad for a day or two. I’m not sure where the Jays pivot to after this.

A large amount of the contract is deferred, saving the Dodgers room under the Luxtury Tax.
