Who knows... honestly.  There could be a run for him, but there is so much speculation, I just can't be sure.  I will say this, the Yankees would be fools to look the other way. I think they have to at least give a look and build from there.

ESPN has this:

"Japanese baseball star Shohei Otani will be made available to major league teams, according to Japanese media reports.

Otani's team, the Nippon Ham Fighters, announced Friday that the highly touted pitcher-outfielder will made available via the posting system, according to the reports....

While the posting agreement between MLB and Nippon Professional Baseball expired last week, the sides reportedly agreed several weeks ago to the outlines of a deal that would for this offseason continue the rules of the previous agreement, although no announcement has been made. The rules call for the Japanese club to set a maximum $20 million posting fee, and any MLB club willing to bid that amount would be able to negotiate with Otani for 30 days."

And now we wait and see.
