Asking what can Shohei Otani do better in 2017 is akin to the question of what do you get the person who already has everything.

Otani almost did it all for the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters this past season. He won 10 games and struck out 174 as a pitcher and batted .322 with 22 home runs at the plate. He was the Pacific League MVP and an unprecedented Best Nine selection at both pitcher and designated hitter.
