Fantasy Impact:

This news is certain to increase the intensity surrounding Yamamoto negotiations as the best player on the planet happens to be both Japanese and a fellow free agent in Shohei Ohtani. The 25-year-old tossed a 1.23 ERA in 23 games with Orix of the NPB in 2023 where he has been a two-time MVP. His contract is likely to well exceed the $200 million barrier while roughly half the league is reportedly interested in his services.
