Shohei Ohtani Rumors: GM Meetings Edition

The offseason kicked into gear this week with the General Manager Meetings taking place in Scottsdale, Arizona. Though the meetings were eventually ended early due to a virus circling the bases of the baseball world, there was still plenty of reporting about how markets are shaping up for various clubs and players. The big star of the winter is set to be Shohei Ohtani but only dribs and drabs of information have come out relating to him so far, with Jon Heyman of The New York Post and Bob Nightengale of USA Today rounding up some of the details.

Ohtani is the top free agent available, head and shoulders above the rest. The two-way superstar has been the best player in baseball of late, putting together a three-year run of excellence that is perhaps the greatest the sport has ever seen. He’s hit 124 home runs, stolen 57 bases and slashed .277/.379/.585 in that time for a wRC+ of 157. He’s also tossed 428 1/3 innings with a 2.84 earned run average. Elbow surgery will keep him from pitching in 2024 but he will still hit, and will presumably do all he can to return to the mound in 2025 and beyond.

There has never been a player like this or a free agent like this, which puts him center stage. It has been assumed by many that he is most likely to land with a traditional big spending club such as the Dodgers, but he’s such a massive superstar that it’s possible many dark horse teams get into the mix. Marketing opportunities, both in North America and around the world, should offset some of the money it takes to land him. Those factors, along with his unprecedented talents, could open the door to unlikely suitors. “No one knows where he’s going to end up,’’ Astros general manager Dana Brown said to Nightengale. “And I think that’s exciting for the game. You just don’t know what’s going to happen. I think there may be a wild card team out there that’s going to surface. These teams can just come out of nowhere.” Indeed, any club that is not interested in Ohtani would be more noteworthy than a club that is.

But little information was to be had at the meetings, as neither Ohtani nor his agent Nez Balelo were present. Many baseball decision makers hemmed and hawed when directly asked about their interest in Ohtani, many commenting on his immense talent while adding that any club would be happy to have him. Perhaps the most absurd instance of ducking the question came from Mariners’ president of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto, when speaking with Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register. When asked about how he would value such a unique player, he said merely “I don’t know.” When asked if he would need to figure out an answer, “Presumably so” was the response.

With various smokescreens coming from different directions, there is little left to do but try to read the tea leaves. Heyman says the Dodgers are considered the favorite because of their payroll space, track record of on-field success and Ohtani’s reported fondness for Southern California. But he also adds that the Angels want a reunion and the Padres are interested as well. The latter club is reportedly trying to figure out whether to trade or extend Juan Soto, with Heyman adding that president of baseball operations A.J. Preller has little interest in a trade. However, if they can successfully sign Ohtani, that could change.

He adds that the Yankees and Mets will check in but believe Ohtani is reluctant to live in New York. Heyman admits that he’s basing that on Ohtani’s initial arrival in North America six years ago, when he was reportedly choosing between the Angels, Dodgers, Padres, Rangers, Giants, Mariners and Cubs, mostly West Coast teams and none in New York. At that time, he was subject to the amateur bonus pool system and wasn’t going to get more than a few million bucks regardless of where he signed, so having a geographical preference didn’t hurt him financially. Now it would be in his best interest to at least pretend he’s open to signing anywhere, in order to have more suitors and boost his bidding. Whether he privately has a strong geographic preference right now is unknown.

The Cubs were the primary exception to the Western preference last time around and it seems they are hoping that Ohtani still thinks of them fondly. Nightengale lists them as a serious contender for Ohtani and adds that “several GMs” are saying that the Cubs “may be” the most aggressive team on Ohtani. He also adds that the Rangers are considered a serious contender, which isn’t surprising after their World Series win that was fuelled by several notable free agent signings in recent years.

As mentioned, the Angels would like a reunion and shouldn’t be counted out. “I think this is a very desirable place to play,’’ Minasian said to Nightengale. “It’s in a great part of the country. We have an outstanding fan base. The players that have played here since I’ve been here, have been really, really positive with their experiences. So, with anybody on the market, I think we have a chance.”

Though the Angels haven’t had much success on the field lately, they have done plenty of big deals under owner Arte Moreno. That includes a $360MM extension for Mike Trout, while Albert Pujols and Anthony Rendon got $254MM and $245MM in free agency, respectively. Re-signing Ohtani will likely require them to go beyond that stratosphere and into the mesosphere, but there’s at least some precedent there. “I wouldn’t put anything past,’’ Minasian said. “I think it’s something that for the right opportunities, ownership is all about winning. …We’ll do what we can to make the team as good as we can.’’

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote this week about the interest of the Giants, talking to president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi. “We’ve got a good amount of payroll flexibility,” Zaidi said, “so anybody that we think can be an impact player for us, even on a long-term deal, we’re going to be looking at.” Daniel Kramer of MLB.com covered Ohtani from the Mariners’ perspective, highlighting that Dipoto was much more vocal in his interest back when Ohtani was first coming over in 2017. There are likely a dozen other clubs working on their overtures to Ohtani at this very moment.

How it will all play out and on what timeline remains to be seen. Ohtani will likely want to talk teams about things beyond just money, such as how long they are willing to let him try pitching, what they would do if/when he can no longer take the mound, etc. Those conversations may take a few weeks and it’s been speculated that he may be signed by the Winter Meetings in the first week of December, but there are still plenty of unknowns about perhaps the most fascinating free agent of all-time.

Los Angeles Angels free agent Shohei Ohtani appears positioned for a record-setting deal this winter. No player has hit the open market in the last decade who impacts the game at such a high level on both sides of the game.

Ohtani's prowess as both a pitcher and a batter makes him a unique case where his contract value, in a salary cap-less world, could see him earning upwards of $600 million based on some projections.

It's been widely speculated that he'll get the largest contract in MLB history, and likely a particularly long one, 10 years plus. But, maybe not? Recent growing buzz reported by MLB Insider at ESPN Kiley McDaniel suggests his contract may not be as straightforward as we think.

McDaniel reports that there is, "growing buzz," that Ohtani might want to sign a shorter deal (subscription required) and re-enter the market in 2026 and 2027. McDaniel says he thinks that might look like him signing a six-year deal with multiple player opt-outs he could leverage to re-enter the open market at an opportune time, namely, one where he's proven his post-surgery pitching is still worth paying top-tier money for.

McDaniel suggests that if he goes this route, the average annual value might be in the window of $55-60 million. If he plays out three years, that would equate to just $180 million, far short of the massive $500-600 million we've heard tossed around.

Would a shorter deal make sense for Shohei Ohtani?

Teams, certainly, would be open to the arrangement of a shorter deal with an AAV around $55-60 million. That may be slightly higher than the extremely long timeline a $600 million deal would cover, but long deals tend to be scary for owners since you never know what a player will look like in the tail-end years of the contract.

But does it make sense for Ohtani?

On the face, it doesn't seem like it. The only way it makes sense is if teams are balking completely on giving him a massive contract because of his impending UCL surgery that will likely keep him from pitching in 2024. Still, Ohtani has proven plenty on the bump and in an open market still likely commands above $50 million per year even with the unknown that is his arm after a second UCL repair.

But it all depends on what the value works out to and how the option years play out for him. Maybe he values the optionality in the future and would take lower AAV in exchange for an off-ramp later on. Ohtani, who seems to prefer a smaller market, is far from a typical professional athlete. Trying to understand his thinking might be futile.

Him signing a short-term deal would be the biggest shock of the offseason, but hasn't his entire career been a bit of a shock?

Cronin discusses 1st chance as coach with Ducks on 'The Chirp' podcast

Greg Cronin didn’t get his opportunity to be an NHL coach until he was 60 years old. But now in his first season with the Anaheim Ducks, Cronin isn't concerned about what didn't happen in the past but how he's helping to turn the Ducks around in the present."I have no regret, I have no resentment," Cronin said on the latest episode of "The Chirp with Daren Millard" podcast. "I'm just really thrilled to have the opportunity, that [Ducks general manager] Pat Verbeek saw talent in me when we had our long in...

Greg Cronin didn’t get his opportunity to be an NHL coach until he was 60 years old. But now in his first season with the Anaheim Ducks, Cronin isn't concerned about what didn't happen in the past but how he's helping to turn the Ducks around in the present.

"I have no regret, I have no resentment," Cronin said on the latest episode of "The Chirp with Daren Millard" podcast. "I'm just really thrilled to have the opportunity, that [Ducks general manager] Pat Verbeek saw talent in me when we had our long interviews, and he thought that talent would mesh well with what he's trying to do here with the rebuild. I'm happy as can be."

Cronin had been an assistant in the NHL with the New York Islanders (1998-2003, 2014-18) and Toronto Maple Leafs (2011-14) and had coached the Colorado Eagles, the Colorado Avalanche's American Hockey League affiliate, for five seasons prior to the Ducks hiring him June 5.

The Ducks (7-6-0) are fourth in the Pacific Division following a 6-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday. Still, it's a promising beginning for a team that has missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs five straight seasons and was last in the NHL standings last season (23-47-12).

But Cronin isn't satisfied.

"I'm [ticked] off we lost [2-0 against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday]," he said. "I want to be 8-4-0, not 7-[6]-0. At the same time, I'm looking through a long lens here. This is short in the season, it's early. This doesn't mean anything. What it does is it shows that they're capable of executing at a high pace and if they come back from losses, which is critical, that they can battle through adversity and win games. But it's a small sample size. It's our responsibility as coaches and their responsibility as players to continue to move this forward every day."

Cronin said he's gone to a simpler approach and "hold guys accountable to rules within a very simple system that will allow us to defend." It was important for players to buy in, and Cronin said they have. His biggest concern, however, was making sure he could create the defensive accountability with star forward Trevor Zegras and how it would impact his offense.

"If you look at his numbers optically, you say, 'Wow this guy has two points (one goal, one assist) in 12 games. What's going on there?'" Cronin said. "Well, I think his offense is going to come. Defensively he's completely committed to it, his teammates see it ... and he's bought into the fact that the team's having success despite the fact he's not scoring. But he's getting his chances. He seriously could have eight goals right now; he's getting chances but he's not scoring.

"I really like him. He's a very creative kid, kind of like an artist. He's very creative and he likes to make creative plays and use his stick to create magic on the ice. That's all great. He's getting chances and they'll come. His scoring will come. But I'm more proud of him about his team-first mentality that he's demonstrated the first few months here."

"The Chirp with Daren Millard" features interviews with players, executives, alumni and other personalities around the game and is available now on multiple iOS and Android podcast apps. You can share your thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #ChirpMillard.

It’s been a rough few years for the Anaheim Ducks.

The team hasn’t reached the postseason since 2018, and in the latter part of those five years, they’ve been especially terrible. In fact, it’s been a while since the Ducks have even had a true core to their team.

Post-2004 lockout, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry emerged as faces of the organization for nearly 15 years, with a cast of other key players around them. It was a group that saw huge success, reaching the playoffs in 11 of 13 years between 2006 to 2018, and capturing a Stanley Cup early on in that timeframe.

However, since the time the Getzlaf/Perry era came to a close, Anaheim hasn’t really had a group of players to lead the team into a new era of success.

We saw the likes of Rickard Rakell, Adam Henrique, Jakob Silfverberg, Hampus Lindholm and Josh Manson do what they could to keep the team competitive over much of the last five years. However, the reality was a lot of the players being tasked to carry the load were complementary pieces who should be surrounding stars, more than they were capable of truly leading a team.

But after selling off a lot of those former players and building through the draft, the Ducks have made way for a new core to take over.

Over the last couple years, Troy Terry and Trevor Zegras were really the only forwards on the roster you could look at and identify that they would undoubtedly be part of the Ducks’ roster long-term.

Then came Mason McTavish emerging as an NHL regular last year, managing 43 points in 80 games during his rookie season. While used down the lineup throughout a lot of the year, McTavish earned his role in the top-six later on, before taking a huge step this season to now lead the Ducks in points early in the year.

Now with Leo Carlsson, the Ducks have another potential franchise center. Already taking on a huge role and fitting in well in his rookie season, Carlsson rounds out what could be the team’s own Core Four up front for the foreseeable future.

Between Terry, Zegras, McTavish and Carlsson, we could see the group as fixtures in the team’s top-six for the better part of the next decade.

Then on the blue line, the team has already integrated three young defensemen who could be part of the defense group long-term.

While Jamie Drysdale has had some injury trouble, there’s no denying the potential upside once healthy. A high-end skater, Drysdale has the opportunity to be a very effective all-around defenseman. While we have yet to see whether he’s going to be a top-pairing or top-four blue liner, he remains pretty much a lock to be a big part of the team’s future.

Then perhaps the biggest surprise of this season has been Pavel Mintyukov quickly establishing his himself through just 12 games so far. It’s pretty wild to see just how important the 19-year-old has already become to the team’s defense group, considering it seemed unlikely he’d even earn a role with the team to start the year.

Jackson LaCombe seemed more likely to make the team this season, but it’s been impressive how well he’s been able to transition to the NHL as well. If the Ducks didn’t have so much other young talent making an impact already, LaCombe’s emergence as a reliable defenseman at just 22 years old would be a bigger story.

The team has also done a pretty good job surrounding the newer talent with veterans. In addition to the four top forwards, both Alex Killorn and Ryan Strome are under contract until 2027, providing additional stability to the top-nine of the team’s forward group. Then on the blue line, the likes of Mintyukov, LaCombe and any other prospects who make the jump will be surrounded by veterans in Cam Fowler and Radko Gudas, who are each locked into deals until 2026.

In goal, we’re also seeing the changing of the guard. John Gibson has been the team’s starter for nearly a decade, establishing himself as one of the NHL’s best goalies early in that stretch. While Gibson has also faced a little more inconsistency over previous years, he hasn’t had much help, and you could argue that Anaheim would have been even worse off without him.

However, Lukas Dostal has made the jump to the NHL as well, and as expected, he looks great. Posting a .920 save percentage early on and already essentially splitting the workload with Gibson at 23 years old, Dostal is pretty clearly being positioned as the Ducks’ next long-term starter.

The Ducks have done a great job building a young core to take over, which isn’t necessarily what we’ve seen over the last few years. For a while, the veterans who remained with the Ducks were looked at as the central pieces but now, it seems like the shift has been that the veterans are starting to become the complementary pieces, surrounding this new core. The new wave of talent has brought the Ducks new life, as the likes of Zegras, Carlsson, McTavish, Terry, Mintyukov, Drysdale, LaCombe, Dostal and others emerge to carry this team into their new era.

Undoubtedly, there will be bumps along the way with such a young group. While Anaheim is off to a great start this season, there’s no telling whether the playoffs this season are even truly likely. But there’s a very different feel to this team, being competitive in a way that the Ducks haven’t been in a long time.

After a stretch of time where the franchise seemed a little bit lost as an organization, Anaheim now has direction and is finally on an upward trend. There’s a long way to go, but with the new wave of talent now firmly holding spots in the lineup – and emerging as the team’s most valuable players ​​– the organization is finally set for a new era of success.

November 12 - The Anaheim Ducks are on a two-game slide, but even among that swoon have seen a huge plus as they prepare to host the San Jose Sharks on Sunday.

The Ducks are coming off Friday's 6-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers -- a second straight home defeat that has followed a six-game winning streak. The positive in that game was seeing highly touted rookie Leo Carlsson recorded his first career hat trick.

Carlsson, the second overall pick in this year's draft, became the youngest player in Ducks history (18 years, 319 days) to score three goals in a game, and the 19th in NHL history to net a hat trick before his 19th birthday.

"He's a player," Anaheim coach Greg Cronin said. "He's going to be a star in this league. I mean, he could have had five goals, really. Missed a couple, but he's a star player."

Carlsson tallied twice while on the power play. Veteran Alex Killorn helped set him up twice.

"Two great passes," Carlsson said. "The second one was an open goal kind of, so it's nice."

The Ducks will be looking for more of the same from Carlsson, who became only the third Anaheim rookie to collect a hat trick (joining Bobby Ryan and Sam Steel), as well as a bigger outing throughout the lineup against San Jose.

There was no word on Saturday whether forward Trevor Zegras will be back in the lineup. Zegras was unavailable for the Flyers game due to a lower-body injury.

The Sharks, who sit at the bottom of the NHL standings, saw their modest two-game winning streak -- their only victories this season -- snapped with a 5-0 loss to the defending Stanley Cup champion Vegas Golden Knights on Friday.

It was not as bad as the consecutive losses earlier in the week in which the Sharks twice surrendered 10 goals, but that did not take away the sting of another defeat.

"They were better. We were not good enough," forward Mikael Granlund said. "They were winning way more puck battles, obviously put us on defense quite a bit, so we got to be better."

San Jose has mustered only two victories in 13 games this season and will be in tough against any top team. That said, the Sharks don't believe they put in their best performance on a night they trailed 1-0 just 60 seconds after puck drop.

"Right from the get-go, we looked flat, for sure," coach David Quinn said. "Getting down again 2-0 certainly didn't help our cause. We were just half a step behind all night long.

"We defended way too much and weren't able to end plays. We're chasing the game really from the drop of the puck."

Forward Anthony Duclair, who is second on the team with three goals this season, was scratched due to illness, and his status for the Anaheim clash was not made known on Saturday.
