I’m a hitter, but I’m also injuring my side.
Tommy John surgery will require more than a year of rehab.
Designated hitter is expected to play next year
‘FA mega contract signing’ unknown
Of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim officially ended his season on Sunday.
Two-hitting Major League Baseball (MLB) superstar Shohei Ohtani, 29, of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, has
had an injury-plagued season end prematurely. He suffered a right elbow ligament tear, followed by a right lateral
muscle injury. The Angels placed Ohtani on the 10-day disabled list (IL) on Sunday, announcing, “Ohtani is officially
done for the season. 토토사이트 He will not be available for the remainder of the season.”
Ohtani complained of elbow discomfort while pitching in the first game of a doubleheader against Cincinnati on
March 24 and was diagnosed with elbow ligament damage upon further examination. Ohtani, who hasn’t pitched
since and has appeared only as a designated hitter, was benched on May 5 when he injured his right lateral during batting practice.
Whose season ended prematurely, plans to undergo elbow surgery first. “I don’t know if it’s going to be a ligament
splicing surgery (Tommy John surgery) or something else,” Angels general manager Perry Minassian said.
Regardless of the surgery, 스포츠토토 it’s unlikely he’ll be back on the mound next season.
The elbow surgery will also affect Ohtani’s price tag when he becomes a free agent after the season. He’s still likely
to be one of the highest-paid pitchers in MLB, but it’s unclear if he’ll be able to land a big contract of $500 million or
more. If he undergoes Tommy John surgery, his rehabilitation will likely take more than a year. Ohtani’s agent, Nez
Valero, emphasized that “even if he has elbow surgery, he will be able to play full-time next season as a designated hitter.”
Ohtani, who was named Most Valuable Player (MVP) after leading Japan to victory at the World Baseball Classic
(WBC) in March, was an MVP-caliber pitcher and hitter in MLB before his injury. As of July 17, Ohtani leads the
American League in home runs (44), ranks fourth in batting average (.304), and is tied for fifth in RBIs (95). As a
pitcher, Ohtani has started 23 games, going 10-5 with a 3.14 ERA. MLB.com called it “a great season, one of the
greatest in MLB history, that has come to an abrupt end.”
