After Japanese superstar Shohei Ohtani met with the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, it concluded his seventh and final meeting with MLB teams, though it’s unclear when he’ll make a decision on where to sign, reports Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.
The San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers were the first two teams to meet with the prized free agent. Other teams to make the cut are the Padres, Texas Rangers, Los Angeles Angels, Chicago Cubs, and Seattle Mariners.
Though he doesn't seem to be driven by money, of the final seven, the Rangers ($3.5 million), Giants ($1.835 million), Mariners ($1.5 million), and Angels ($1.315 million) have the most international bonus pool funds to offer the 23-year-old. The Padres, Dodgers, and Cubs are limited to $300,000.
