Yankees out of running for Shohei Ohtani, Brian Cashman says

Yankees out of running for Shohei Ohtani, Brian Cashman says

The Yankees were perceived to be the favorite by many because they had the second-most amount of worldwide signing bonus money ($3.35M), the diversity of NY, the successful recent history with Japanese players, like Hideki Matsui and Masahiro Tanaka, and a chance to win immediately.

At a charity event tonight, Brian Cashman told Brendan Kuty and Bryan Hoch that Ohtani informed the Yankees he will not sign with them.

The Miami Marlins have agreed to the general framework of a trade involving star Giancarlo Stanton to the St. Louis Cardinals and the San Francisco Giants, according to MLB Network's Jon Morosi.

Austin Rivers to Clippers Fan: 'Shut the F**k Up'
Rivers certainly didn't give the fan a reason to chirp him, as the 25-year-old scored a team-high 25 points. But, unfortunately, his outstanding performance may be overlooked by his antics on the court.

The Los Angeles Dodgers, Seattle Mariners, and Texas Rangers could be possibilities for Ohtani.

Shohei Ohtani won't be heading to the Bronx. Under the rules, the Yankees could have offered the righthanded pitcher and lefthanded hitter a $3.5-million signing bonus, which is the second-most of any team. Last season with the Nippon Ham Fighters, he was limited to just five starts with a 3-2 record with a 3.20 ERA. The Oakland Athletics are not one of those teams, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. The issue there is both teams are NL clubs and thus might have a hard time finding enough at-bats to satify Ohtani's desire to both pitch and play. In 65 games at the plate, he hit.332/.403/.540 with eight home runs, 31 RBI and 16 doubles.
