  • What Shohei Ohtani's season-ending knee surgery means for his future

Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani will have season-ending surgery on his left knee, the Los Angeles Angels have announced.

Ohtani is still rehabbing from last year's surgery and had neared the stage of progressing to up-down bullpens, but now he will undergo the season-ending operation on Friday in Los Angeles to make sure any soreness or irritation in the knee doesn't prevent him from.

However after the 2018 season Ohtani underwent Tommy John surgery to fix the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow. The 25-year-old spent this season primarily as a designated hitter, finishing with a.286/.343/.505 slash line with 18 home runs in 425 plate appearances. Needless to say, the Angels will be as cautious as possible in monitoring the phenom's health throughout the offseason and Spring Training, given Ohtani's dual importance to both the team's lineup and rotation.

Ohtani and the Angels thought about waiting on the surgery until his full throwing progression back from elbow surgery was complete. Ohtani had been asymptomatic throughout his professional career, but it "aggravated him a number of times throughout the season", Eppler said.

"We felt that it was better to get it done now, because it was causing some reluctance or apprehension, whatever word you want to use, in his mound progressions, and we wanted to increase the intensity", Eppler said.
