  • Jul 31 2017 Bronx NY USA New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman speaks with the media before a game against the Detroit Tigers at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees today traded for Oakland Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray at the MLB trade deadline. Man

The Cubs would neither confirm nor deny on Sunday night whether they made the cut to the next stage of the process for the player some call the "Babe Ruth of Japan". The New York Mets, Oakland Athletics, Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers are also among the teams told they won't sign Ohtani.

According to The Athletic, the seven teams still in contention to sign the Japanese superstar are the Dodgers, Angels, Padres, Mariners, Giants, Rangers and Cubs.

In fact, outside of five teams all on the west coast of the United States, Ohtani severely narrowed down his field of potential employers.

"(The Yankees) have been informed today that we have been eliminated from the Ohtani sweepstakes, so we are out", Cashman told reporters after rappelling down the 22-story Landmark Square Building in Stamford, Conn.

I mean, I wouldn't put it past him, not after his representation sent out a memo to all interested clubs asking how Ohtani fits in, not only to the particular club but the city it represents. "And I don't know who's invited to Round Two, but we're not".

"I started getting a feel that wasn't good a few days ago", Cashman said. "That was something that, presentation or not, might be hard to overcome". Just know that when/if you play at Yankee Stadium, we're going to let you hear about it. They spoke on condition of anonymity because not all teams had announced whether they were in or out. Otani has been clocked at 100 miles per hour with his fastball, posted a 3.20 ERA in his final season with the Nippon Ham Fighters, and also hit eight home runs and drove in 31 RBI in 65 games.
