  • Japananese two-way star Shohei Ohtani

Ohthani's Japanese team the Nippon Ham Figthers are expected to formally post the player on Friday once the new posting system has been ratified by Major League Baseball owners.

Shohei Ohtani is available for bidding for all 30 Major League Baseball teams and is said to be open to joining any team.

Japanese media outlets reported Ohtani is now in Los Angeles, and he is expected to meet with Major League clubs as soon as next week.

The Red Sox reportedly were among the teams that scouted Ohtani in August, so their interest in him isn't a shock.

Spokesperson for Palestinian faction says "weapons of resistance" is a red line amid ongoing reconciliation process . Hamas has ruled Gaza, while Abbas's Fatah has controlled autonomous enclaves in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

His agent, CAA Baseball co-head Nez Balelo, sent a memorandum to all teams November 24 asking for "presentations in both Japanese and English via email" allowing the agency to "share it with the Ohtani family so we can proceed with our due diligence". Ohtani is limited to a minor league contract that depends on a team's global signing bonus pool.

Following the deal with Nippon Professional Baseball, Ohtani was put up for bid by the Pacific League's Nippon Ham Fighters for the maximum $20 million posting fee. He hit.332 in 65 games with 16 doubles, eight homers and 31 RBIs. For guaranteed contracts worth less than $25 million, the major league team will pay 20 percent of that value to the team in Japan.

According to Ronald Blum of the Associated Press, the Texas Rangers, New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins are the only teams who can offer a signing bonus of more than $3 million.

The players' association wanted that provision eliminated and also desired the shorter posting period.
