Shohei Ohtani will not be signing with Yankees

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told the NY media that his team also wouldn't be among the teams represented in Los Angeles, where the pitcher/hitter will be getting together with his finalists later this week.

The Yankees appeared to be fairly optimistic about signing Ohtani and were pooling together as much global bonus money as possible.

Based on that, it comes as little surprise the Seattle Mariners and San Francisco Giants are still in contention for Ohtani, per Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan. The Minnesota Twins, the only other team with at least $3 million in bonus money, also did not make the final cut.

Ohtani was in Los Angeles, a person familiar with his location said.

Ohtani was to be put up for bid later Friday by the Pacific League's Nippon Ham Fighters for the maximum $20 million posting fee, starting a 21-day window for the 23-year-old to reach agreement on a contract with an MLB team. This creates a window for Ohtani to negotiate with Major League Baseball teams that will expire at midnight on December 22.

Multiple reports are stating that Ohtani may be leaning to teams on the West Coast and/or in small markets.

Ohtani looks to be one of the first Major Leaguers to both pitch and hit, whether it's as a designated hitter or outfielder, on a regular basis. He also hit.283 with 48 home runs and 166 RBIs in 403 games.
