Brewers Rejected By Japanese Super Star

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Shohei Ohtani won’t be joining the Milwaukee Brewers.  The team was notified it didn’t make the cut in the bidding for the two-way Japanese super star.  Major league teams were told Sunday which ones would advance to face-to-face meetings with Ohtani’s representatives.  The 23 year old is called the “Babe Ruth of Japan” because he hits with power and yet is one of the best pitchers in that league.  He missed a good portion of last year with an injury.  Ohtani has stated his preference to be a rare two-way player in the US, taking the field or serving as a designated hitter on the days he doesn’t pitch.  He reportedly wants to play on the West Coast.
