Ohtani and Wong, future teammates?

The sports world is abuzz with rumors suggesting Ohtani might soon don Dodger blue, potentially uniting these two talents on the same team.

(AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers will be shopping for starting pitching this offseason after it cost them dearly in a first-round playoff exit for the second straight year. The biggest arm on the impending free-agent market will be Los Angeles Angels two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani. He can hit but he won’t pitch next year since he’s coming off his second Tommy John surgery. That won’t stop the Dodgers from pursuing him, but it means they’ll need to look elsewhere, too.
