20187 FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE NEWS: OHTANI COULD COME DOWN TO CUBS/YANKS

The sweepstakes for Japanese slugger/pitcher Shohei Ohtani could come down to the Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees according to multiple industry sources.  While the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants battle it out over Giancarlo Stanton, Ohtani is being heavily courted by the Yanks and Cubs with varying plans for his possible usage.  The Cubs have openly said they would use Ohtani both as a pitcher and a hitter, while the Yanks have been a bit more vague.  Also National League rules could possibly help the Cubs in their pursuit of Ohtani given the fact he can hit in any one start he makes since there is no DH.  While no resolution appears imminent, it seems it already may be a two-team race, with the Texas Rangers a possibly fallback.
