SAN DIEGO (AP) Even though Shohei Ohtani is back in Japan for the offseason, he has been in frequent contact with Los Angeles Angels general manager Perry Minasian about the team's offseason moves.
"We talk a lot. He's asking me daily who we're getting," Minasian said during baseball's winter meetings. "He's into it. We have a lot of players like that. Mike (Trout) and Anthony (Rendon) are like that. I think it's a very motivated group.
"They want to see activity. They want to see the organization making a commitment to making the team better. We'll see how it shakes out when we get to spring training what exactly we have, but we're going to continue to look for opportunities to improve," he said.
