Four days after winning his first career Gold Glove, Marcus Stroman was back on Long Island, telling a crowd of eager young listeners all about it, and showing them how they could follow in his footsteps to a big league pitcher's mound.
OSAKA, JAPAN-Highly touted Japanese pitcher-outfielder Shohei Otani announced early Saturday that he wants to move to Major League Baseball.At a press conference, Otani said, "I hope to do my best in America from next year on."Otanis Japanese club, the Nippon Ham Fighters, said on Friday they will allow Otani to use the posting system this off-season, clearing the way for him to sign with a major-league team next season.Otani, 23, is the reigning Pacific League MVP and went 3-2 with a 3.20 ERA this year. Despite thigh and ankle injuries, he batted .332 in 65 games with 16 doubles, eight homers and 31 RBIs. He had ankle surgery last month.He has a 42-15 record with a 2.52 ERA and 624 strikeouts in 543 innings over five seasons, and a .286 batting average with 48 homers and 166 RBIs.Because Otani has less than nine years of service time, Nippon Ham retains his rights and he must go through the posting system to leave.Under MLB rules, his signing bonus is capped at $3,535,000 U.S. from a team with that much international pool money remaining, and he could become a free agent in 2020. The Ham Fighters could get $20 million, pending league talks.Read more:Rangers, Yankees and Twins have most to offer Japanese superstar Shohei OtaniMove to MLB could cost Japanese star Shohei Otani more than $100 millionMarcus Stroman becomes 10th Blue Jay to win Gold Glove
