Shohei Ohtani remains present in the conversation in Major League Baseball; as a free agent, his destiny still remains a mystery in the MLB environment and will be defined in the next few hours.

It has been revealed that the Japanese player is “intrigued” by the Atlanta Braves. Hence, rumors immediately ignited about the possibilities of the Eastern team and its intentions to sign him.

According to a report by insider Jon Morosi, Shohei Ohtani is looking to join a winning team that can compete for the World Series title. He is also interested in possibly achieving the “Triple Crown” of batting.

This season, the Atlanta Braves won their sixth consecutive title in the National League East, making them one of the most consistent teams and projects in Major League Baseball.

If the rumors are true and Ohtani joins the Braves and with Ronald Acuña Jr. from Venezuela, they would form a tough international offensive duo and immediately become contenders for the World Series.

This is how the Atlanta Braves lineup would look like

Ohtani will not be a cheap player; he is expected to reach a contract that will break all records in the MLB, so he will have to let players like Eddie Rosario go as a free agent.

The Braves lineup could look like this:

  • RF | Ronald Acuña Jr
  • DH | Shohei Ohtani
  • 1B | Matt Olson
  • 2B | Ozzie Albies
  • 3B | Austin Riley
  • LF | Marcell Ozuna
  • SS | Orlando Arcia
  • CF | Michael Harris II
  • C | Sean Murphy
