The Ohtani signing has not jump-started the offseason as some predicted and we now seem to be waiting on Yoshinobu Yamamoto to sign to get the starting pitching market going. The position-player market is a pretty strange one, as the top options have some major questions and aren’t in the clear superstar class that we’ve seen hit free agency in the past, and seem likely to see in Juan Soto next year. The starting pitching options are pretty good this offseason and while we have seen some movement at all levels, arguably the top domestic option, Blake Snell, and many other lower tier options are still out there. There hasn’t been much buzz about anything recently, as many big-market teams wait on the decision of Yamamoto, who has potential to be an instant star.
