Shohei Ohtani (LA Dodgers), a Japanese big leaguer, was selected as the best player selected by active players in the U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB).

The Athletic, a U.S. sports media outlet, announced the results of a survey of more than 100 active MLB players on the 11th (Korea time). Of the 102 respondents, 47 (46%) cited Ohtani as the “MLB’s best player.” The survey of players from 18 MLB clubs was conducted anonymously, and it was conducted for two and a half months from the spring training period before the opening of this season to the latest.
Ohtani, who made his name known as Lee Do-ryu, a pitcher and batter, became the MVP of the American League in a unanimous vote in 2021 and last year when he was with the Los Angeles Angels. It was the first time in MLB history that he won the MVP twice.

“Every player has a similar type of player to him, but Ohtani has no comparison,” one player replied in the survey. Another said, “Otani (who also works as a pitcher) is a player without a doubt.”

Ohtani, who has played in 64 games this season, has posted a batting average of 0.310 with 80 hits, 15 homers, 41 RBIs and 47 runs. He has not taken the mound due to elbow surgery, and is focusing on batting.

Ronald Yakunya Jr. of the Atlanta Braves followed Ohtani with 27 (26.5 percent) support. Mookie Betts of the Dodgers and Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees were selected by nine (8.8 percent), respectively, and tied for third place.토토사이트 추천

To the question “Who is the player you want from each team?” 95 players answered, with Betts topping the list with 12.6 percent (12 players). Ohtani came in second with 6.3 percent (6 players).

In the question of “the most overrated player” (59 respondents), Jazz Chizome Jr. (Miami Marlins) ranked first with 20.3% (12 respondents). Having never exceeded .300 since his MLB debut in 2020, he became a cover model for last year’s video game MLB The Show.
