Dave Dombrowski Confirms Red Sox's Interest In Phenom Shohei Ohtani

Ohthani's Japanese team the Nippon Ham Figthers are expected to formally post the player on Friday once the new posting system has been ratified by Major League Baseball owners.

Shohei Ohtani, who has been called the "Japanese Babe Ruth", is in America and preparing to meet with Major League Baseball teams.

Ohtani will be put up for the maximum $20 million posting fee, and he will have 21 days to reach an agreement with a Major League club. His team in Japan, the Nippon Ham Fighters, will collect a $20 million fee. Texas has the most available at $3,535,000, followed by the New York Yankees ($3.5 million), Minnesota ($3.07 million), Pittsburgh ($2,266,750), Seattle ($1,557,500), Miami ($1.49 million) and the Los Angeles Angels ($1,315,000). That person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made. (For minor league contracts of "Foreign Professionals" that contain Major League terms, a supplemental release fee will be owed at the player is added to the 25 man roster).

Major League Baseball sent out a press release detailing the new posting system, which won't take effect until November 1, 2018.

The previous posting system, which expired on November 1, didn't have the complicated structure that this one does.

General manager Rick Hahn quoted a couple of history's greatest philosophers when describing the White Sox's presentation to prized Japanese free agent Shohei Ohtani.

All 30 teams could potentially be in the mix, since worldwide signing caps significantly limit the price of the 23-year-old.

For minor league contracts, the fee will be 25 percent of the signing bonus, and there will be a supplemental fee for any foreign professionals who at first agree to minor league deals that include major league terms that later come into force.
