NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) --- Shohei Ohtani met with the Los Angeles Dodgers a few
days ago at Dodger Stadium, manager Dave Roberts revealed Tuesday at the winter
Ohtani, a unique two-way star, is expected to command a record contract of $500
million-plus on the free agent market.
"He has a very good poker face," Roberts said.
The meeting lasted two-to-three hours.
"We want to respect Shohei's wishes as far as being private," Roberts said,
"but obviously people talk. I don't think I need to share what we talked about."
Roberts at first hesitated before giving a few details.
"It's a good possibility," he said. "Yeah, we met with him. I like to be honest
and so we met with Shohei and we talked and I think it went well. I think it
went well, but at the end of the day, he's going to do what's best for himself,
where he feels most comfortable."
