The Angels have made their pitch to Shohei Ohtani.

According to multiple sources, the Angels had their turn at a face-to-face meeting with the Japanese superstar and his agent, Nez Balelo, on Monday night.

Angels general manager Billy Eppler has refused comment on the process ever since acknowledging that the club would pursue Ohtani.

The Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners, Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers have also had their sessions, confirmed a source, leaving only the Padres unaccounted for.

It’s unclear just who represented the Angels besides Eppler, but the group was likely to have included Manager Mike Scioscia and others at the highest levels of management.

Ohtani has until Dec. 22 to make his decision.
