In the midst of the intense Shohei Ohtani free agency pursuit, the Toronto Blue Jays are shrouded in secrecy, strategically avoiding any public disclosure of their negotiations. 

While Dodgers manager Dave Roberts openly admitted to meetings with Ohtani, the Blue Jays continue to play their cards close to the chest, refusing to fan the flames of speculation.

The normally elusive Ohtani has set the tone for this covert operation, with reports suggesting that leaked information about team visits could be detrimental to potential suitors.

Despite recent revelations of Ohtani touring Toronto's training facilities, the Blue Jays maintain an unwavering silence, allowing the details to remain mere whispers in the baseball community.

Dodgers general manager Brandon Gomes, in stark contrast, acknowledged Roberts' disclosure but offered no additional comments on Ohtani or the alleged meeting. The contrasting approaches of the two teams add intrigue to an already suspenseful free agency saga.

Blue Jays GM Ross Atkins, adept at navigating the delicate dance of secrecy, provided only cryptic responses during media interactions, emphasizing their commitment to keeping strategic details private. Atkins refrained from confirming or denying Ohtani's reported visit, leaving fans and pundits in suspense.

As the baseball world eagerly anticipates Ohtani's decision, the Blue Jays and Dodgers emerge as front-runners in this historic pursuit. The impact of Roberts' revelation on Ohtani's final choice remains uncertain, but the imminent decision promises to reshape Major League Baseball's landscape. 

Until then, the Blue Jays remain the guardians of one of the most significant secrets in baseball history, steadfast in their vow of silence.
