Are the Angels also involved in the battle to acquire Kodai Senga?
The Angels, to whom Shohei Ohtani belongs, are looking into acquiring Kodai Senga, who is aiming to transition to the majors by exercising foreign FA rights from Softbank. MLB Network’s John Morosi reported. The possibility that the two pitchers who represent the world of Japanese baseball will fight together has come to light. Fans said, “Angels please,” and “I expect to spend money on pitchers this winter.”
As Morosi reported, “The Angels have joined the Dodgers, Rangers, and several other teams,” Senga is likely to be a battle for multiple teams. Of course, the attention of the fans is the joint fight with Otani. “Imagine Rote between Senga and Ohtani,” “We should learn from Shohei,” and “If Senga and Ohtani play on the same team, the level of interest for the Japanese ownership group to buy the Angels might rise.” .
In the Angels’ starting lineup, right-hander Lorenzen becomes a FA. Sandoval, Suarez, Detmers and Davidson are expected to be in the starting rotation next season, and Ohtani is the only right-handed pitcher. Japanese fans also seemed to be very interested, saying, “There’s a lot of demand for Senga,” and “Senga’s Angels…?”
