"I think, in reality, we can't really say if he can or can't do it", Masahiro Tanaka said through an interpreter.

"Could a guy pitch and DH some? think it's possible, " Girardi said.

Finding time to put in the necessary work to hit and pitch won't be easy though, Tanaka seemed to indicate. "I think that's what's in every competitor's heart". "Perhaps it's not possible to win 20 games and hit 50 home runs, but it's where you draw that line of being successful". But it's where you draw that line of being successful.

Multiple outlets reported that Nippon Ham Fighters will post Otani between November and March, making him available to USA clubs who will have four days to bid on his services.

Under the old rules he would have been considered a free agent at the age of 23, and could have signed a contract with a United States team worth $150 million or more. Shohei Otani is likely to leave Japan and sign with a Major League Baseball team after this season, multiple reports in Japanese media said Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017, a move that would cost the 23-year-old pitcher and outfielder more than $100 million.

Otani is two years away from being a complete free agent, and he stands to forfeit tens of millions of dollars if he elects to be posted for bidding by Major League Baseball clubs this offseason. "We kind of have to go with the set rules". He has batted.346/.416/.574 through 51 games this season for the Nippon Ham Fighters and the right-handed-thrower also boasts a 2.60 ERA and 10.4 K/9 in 522 1/3 career innings.

The foundation announced Wednesday that it will hold three "training days" this fall in various cities, including Boston, to do just that.

If Otani is made available under the posting system agreement between MLB and the Nippon Professional Baseball, the maximum a team could bid is $20 million, and if the $20 million is accepted, all teams bidding that amount would be eligible to sign him. "I think they just want to come here and go through the challenge. challenge themselves how well they can play here in the big leagues".

"I can't speak for everybody, but I think a lot of the players that are coming from Japan to play here.it's not so much about the money", Tanaka said.

"Lke I said earlier, you can't really label anything of being not possible", Tanaka said. "You've got to give him a chance - if he's gonna go about doing it".
