  • Shohei Ohtani

Major League Baseball owners unanimously ratified the new Japanese posting agreement, and now the top two-way player of the era will have three weeks to sign with a club.

That timeframe was revealed in conjunction with the announcement of a new agreement between MLB and Nippon Professional Baseball that lays out terms for players to move from Japan to MLB beginning next offseason.

Ohtani has a desire to both hit and be a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball.

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, those meetings with the potential star could begin "as soon as next week".

As part of the deal, a tiered system for posting fees will start next November 1. Considering the relatively nominal cost, seemingly every team could be in competition for Ohtani's services, especially because he can only receive a maximum bonus of $3.5 million.

Ohtani's agent reportedly gave each team a memo to all 30 teams asking them to fill out a host of questions in order to help determine the best fit. The fee will be 20 per cent of the first $25 million of a major league contract, including earned bonuses and options.

The lucky Major League Baseball team will have to pay the Fighters $20 million for the right to negotiate with Ohtani, but that's a minor obstacle on the path to signing a 23-year-old with a 100 miles per hour fastball, a nasty breaking ball - and a career.859 OPS and game-changing speed on the bases.

Texas has the most money remaining to sign worldwide players under age 25 in its pool for the period running through June 15 at $3,535,000, followed by the New York Yankees at $3.5 million, Minnesota ($3,245,000), Pittsburgh ($2,266,750), Seattle ($1,557,500) and Miami ($1.49 million). He hit.332 in 65 games with 16 doubles, eight homers and 31 RBIs. Under the previous agreement, the time period was Nov 1 through March 1.
