Shohei Ohtani is set for a really big payday next offseason. So big, that it will likely be historic.
Alden Gonzalez of ESPN discussed Ohtani's free-agent contract next winter, with one agent estimating the two-way star will land a 10-year, $430 million contract and a team executive throwing out a 12-year, $480 million contract.
Ohtani was absolutely dominant last season. 28-year-old hit .273/.356/.519 with 34 home runs and 95 runs batted in while posting a 15-9 record with a 2.33 ERA and 1.01 WHIP as a pitcher. He struck out 219 batters in 166 innings while finishing fourth in the AL Cy Young voting.
Ohtani will be making $30M for the 2023 season which is the biggest contract for a salary eligible player.
