The sale of the Los Angeles Angels club is on track.
USA Today said in an article on the 9th (Korean time) that “at least six investment groups have shown interest in selling the Angels.” “MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred and the Angels club discussed the completion of the sale before this year’s opening, but it is difficult to realize,” he said.스포츠토토
Chairman Art Moreno, who took over the Angels club in 2003, announced his intention to sell the club in August of last year. The above media explained, “It is an attractive club that has Shohei Ohtani, who has become a world-class player. Many investors have shown interest in the acquisition.”
Regarding the investment group, “Patrick Soon-Shiong, a wealthy man who owns the Los Angeles Times, Joe Rakop, the owner of the Golden State Warriors, and a Japanese investment group are nominated as candidates.” He has publicly expressed his intention to buy with me.”
According to the above media, the sale price of the Azels club is expected to reach about 2.5 billion dollars (approximately 3.1225 trillion won). In addition to Ohtani, they have an outstanding outfielder in Mike Trout, and this winter they acquired Tyler Anderson, Hunter Renfro, Geo Acella, and Brandon Drury.
However, there are limitations in that it is a low-ranking team that is far from fall baseball, and it is a relatively unpopular team with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the same area. The Angels haven’t advanced to fall baseball since 2014.
Ohtani, who will become a free agent at the end of this season, is also aspiring to win the championship, so the possibility of trade during the season or transfer after the season is increasing, so it is evaluated that now is the best time to sell the Angels club.
