Shohei Otani

Japanese star Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Dodgers), who is active in American Professional Baseball (MLB), will miss the opening game of this year’s exhibition game.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts met with reporters ahead of spring training at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona, USA on the 19th (Korean time) and said, “Ohtani will not play in the opening game of the exhibition game against the San Diego Padres on the 23rd.” .

Accordingly, the two-hitting competition with San Diego’s Go Woo-seok (25) as well as the hitting competition with Kim Ha-seong (28) were postponed to a later date.

Ohtani, who underwent elbow ligament fusion surgery in September of last year, hit a series of big home runs during his first outdoor batting practice on the 13th.

However, it is known that he is not yet in a state of health that allows him to participate in the game normally. 스포츠 토토사이트

Coach Roberts said, “Ohtani is working hard on rehabilitation and his recovery is ahead of schedule,” but added, “It is still unknown when he will be able to play.”

Ohtani is currently adjusting his condition with the goal of the regular season opening game against San Diego to be held at Gocheok Sky Dome on March 20th.

Ohtani, who signed a 10-year contract worth $700 million (approximately 925.5 billion won), the highest ever in December last year, has greatly increased his value by ‘doing double duty as a pitcher’, but this year, he is scheduled to play only as a hitter due to the aftermath of elbow surgery. 일본야동
