The Dodgers plan to formally introduce Shohei Ohtani in a press conference at Dodger Stadium on Thursday afternoon. The press conference will be televised by SportsNet LA and MLB Network, beginning at 3 p.m. PT (8 a.m. in Japan).
Ohtani’s 10-year contract was finalized on Monday, with $700 million in guaranteed money and a whopping $680 million in deferred salary. For competitive balance tax purposes, Ohtani’s deal will count as $46.08 million each season from 2024-2033.
The press conference on Thursday, which is not open to the public, will be held in the centerfield plaza at Dodger Stadium.
MLB Network says their coverage of the press conference will include Greg Amsinger and Harold Reynolds on-site in Los Angeles.
