Superstar Shohei Ohtani Set To Sign In Toronto According To Multiple Reports

Brace yourselves Blue Jays fans, as rumors suggest that Shohei Ohtani's free agency saga might be reaching its conclusion, with speculation mounting about a private jet en route to Pearson Airport, carrying the Japanese baseball sensation to Toronto.

Sources: Shohei Ohtani is en route to Toronto today.

A representative of his agency, CAA, would not comment when asked about Ohtani's travel plans.

At this hour, Ohtani does not have a signed agreement with any @MLB team.

The online buzz on platforms like X and Reddit have intensified, with rumors of a reservation for 50 individuals at a sushi restaurant in close proximity to Rogers Centre.

In an additional twist, X user Clarence Frazer, citing an anonymous source, alleges that Blue Jays pitcher Yusei Kikuchi, also a Japanese player, made a reservation for over 50 guests at an "upscale sushi restaurant near Rogers Centre" on Friday night.

Source: Shohei Ohtani has not made a decision yet.

That's not to say it won't ultimately be the Blue Jays; my understanding is that, at this point, that decision has not been made.

Just because there's no final agreement with the #BlueJays now doesn't mean there won't be one. Jays have been pushing all-in for Shohei Ohtani & there's clearly mutual interest. As of this moment, though, there's no final decision made by Ohtani, source told me &

Perhaps the most sought-after player in MLB history, Ohtani is expected to command an offer well over $500 million (U.S.), with some speculating the bidding could reach over $600 million.

Stay tuned for more updates...
