Hours after bad elbow news, Shohei Ohtani homers twice

  • Shohei Ohtani likely won’t be seeing the mound for the Angels anytime soon. More

It doesn't appear like the rookie season of two-way phenom Shohei Ohtani will include any more pitching.

Angels P/DH Shohei Ohtani underwent an MRI earlier today and learned that he sustained new damage to the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

However, the Angels will certainly want Ohtani the pitcher back eventually and the rehab for Tommy John surgery, while often effective, is infamously grueling. In June, after making nine starts, Ohtani was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 2 sprain of the UCL in his right elbow and began to receive plasma-rich platelet injections. The signs of Ohtani needing Tommy John had been evident for months, especially with Sunday night's steep decline in velocity.

Although Ohtani is enjoying success as the Angels' designated hitter, Eppler flatly declared that the Angels still see Ohtani as a two-way player, however long they must wait for his pitching career to resume. He will be allowed to hit until he has surgery and a timetable hasn't been set.

The Angels are 19 games out of first place, and risking further injury from Ohtani to pitch 2.1 innings in a meaningless game seemed beyond misguided - if not downright reckless. "When that is depends on whatever the course of action is".

The injury puts a decided damper on one of the most exciting rookie seasons in big league history. On the mound, he is 4-2 with a 3.31 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP and 63 strikeouts in 51.2 innings. Against the Astros, Ohtani became the first player since Babe Ruth in 1919 with 50 IP and 15 HR in a single season.

Ohtani's emergence was a bright spot for the Angels, who opened the season atop the AL West division race before falling 10-plus games behind by mid-June.

Ohtani homered twice during a huge night at the plate after getting bad news about his injured elbow, and the Los Angeles Angels cruised to a 9-3 victory over the Texas Rangers.

Last fall, Ohtani was diagnosed with a sprained elbow ligament while in Japan.

The Angels paid the $20 million posting fee to Ohtani's previous club, the Nippon Ham Fighters. "I don't know if Shohei thought it was normal just from not having pitched for a while".
