AP source: Japanese star Shohei Ohtani cuts to 5 West Coast teams, Rangers, Cubs

NEW YORK (AP) — Japanese pitcher and outfielder Shohei Ohtani has cut the field of major league teams he is considering to five clubs on the West Coast plus the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Angels, San Francisco, San Diego and Seattle all remain in contention. Several teams said Sunday they were told they had been eliminated, and the seven remaining were confirmed Monday to The Associated Press by a pair of people familiar with the choices. They spoke on condition of anonymity because not all teams had announced whether they were in or out. Ohtani is limited to a minor league contract because of restrictions imposed by the MLB collective bargaining agreement.
