After two failed attempts, the Yankees are still interested in Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani.
Shohei Ohtani is a two-way star for the Los Angeles Angels.
The New York Yankees have long pursued the 28-year-old superstar and have three more chances to sign him: this offseason, the 2023 MLB trade deadline, and next offseason,
when he becomes a free agent. There's growing speculation that the Bronx Bombers will sign Ohtani.
"People close to Ohtani say it's wrong to say he's anti-New York. They say he's never said that and would be open-minded as a free agent.
As his incredible performance shows, he's fully committed to the Angels."
Heyman previously reported that the Yankees made a "serious" offer for Ohtani at the deadline.
"The Yankees were among the most interested teams in aborted trade-deadline talks before Angels owner Arte Moreno decided he couldn't trade Ohtani," Heyman wrote.
