MLB: MVP Shohei Ohtani wants to “stay a long time” at Anaheim Angels

Shohei ohtani has just been consecrated as a legend of baseball from MLB, since after having had an amazing 2021 MLB Season he was named the JMost Valuable Player MVP. The value of the Japanese has increased in the market and surely many teams would like to sign him in the future. Nevertheless, Ohtani stated that he “wants to stay a long time” with the Anaheim Angels.

Anaheim Angels fans were surely reassured to hear Shohei Ohtani’s words after receiving his AL MVP award this year.

This is because the Japanese said he “wants to make it clear that he loves the Angels organization and that he is looking forward to being an important part of the team for a long time,” despite not wanting to go into detail about a possible negotiation.

Ohtani is forecast to earn $ 5.5 million for the 2022 campaign and will be eligible for arbitration in 2023; being until 2024 when he can potentially become a free agent.

Shohei Ohtani managed to overcome a terrible 2020 and in 2021 he excelled as a pitcher and also as a hitter, putting numbers that led him to be compared to figures like Babe Ruth.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
