Ohtani, the pitcher/slugger, is a hot commodity for a number of teams and now it appears that he is narrowing down his list.

Per Passan’s report, the New York Yankees are out on Ohtani. New York had $3.5 million available to give to Ohtani as a bonus, the second largest amount behind the Texas Rangers.

Ohtani has informed clubs that he would prefer going to the west coast or to a smaller market.
