The Shohei Ohtani sweepstakes is down to seven

Ohtani and his representatives will meet with these teams in Los Angeles some time this week, after which he'll make a decision on where to play.

According to reports, all other teams are out of the running for the services of the 23-year-old Japanese right-hander with a 100 miles per hour fastball and devastating left-handed swing. The two AL East powerhouses residing in those cities acknowledged Sunday that they were told the Japanese phenom, who has until December 22 to sign with an Major League Baseball team, eliminated each from the competition for his services.

Because he wants to both pitch and start as a hitter when he's not starting as a pitcher, American League teams would seem to have an advantage.

According to Jim Bowden of Sirius XM, the Giants are meeting with Japanese star Shohei Ohtani in Los Angeles on Monday. According to reports, several other teams were told the same thing Sunday, including the Twins, Mets and D-backs. They spoke on condition of anonymity because not all teams had announced whether they were in or out.

Ohtani could have waited two more years to reach the minimum age at which he would be eligible for a lucrative major league contract, part of restrictions on worldwide signings included in MLB's recent collective bargaining agreement. The Rangers remain in the running, however, because they have the most bonus money available to give to Ohtani, at around $3.535 million. The Cubs, Dodgers and Giants are restricted to $300,000 maximums in the signing period through June 15 as penalties for exceeding their bonus pools in 2015-16 and the Padres are limited to $300,000 for going over in 2016-17.

NY general manager Brian Cashman confirmed to reporters Sunday night that his club was out of the running.
