(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Shohei Ohtani won’t be joining the Milwaukee Brewers. The team was notified it didn’t make the cut in the bidding for the two-way Japanese super star. Major league teams were told Sunday which ones would advance to face-to-face meetings with Ohtani’s representatives. The 23-year-old is called the “Babe Ruth of Japan” because he hits with power and yet is one of the best pitchers in that league. He missed a good portion of last year with an injury. Ohtani has stated his preference to be a rare two-way player in the US, taking the field or serving as a designated hitter on the days he doesn’t pitch. He reportedly wants to play on the West Coast.
