Shohei Ohtani (29, LA Angels) has been sidelined for the fourth straight game with an oblique injury. However, he is expected to return to action soon.
The Angels will host the Cleveland Cavaliers at Angel Stadium in Los Angeles, California on April 8 (ET).
Mike Moustakas is the Angels’ designated hitter, and second baseman Brandon Drury is batting second. Ohtani is out of the lineup for the fourth straight game.
Previously, Ohtani missed the Baltimore game with a right oblique strain after taking batting practice for five days. There was talk that he could be out for the season.
However, a medical examination revealed that the injury was not serious. He was not placed on the disabled list and is being monitored.
Ohtani is expected to be able to play on the 9th or 10th. He could also be available as a pinch-hitter against Cleveland on the 8th.
However, there is no reason for Ohtani to push himself. While he still has goals like reaching 50 home runs, the Angels’ chances of making the postseason are already slim to none.카지노사이트
Ohtani shouldn’t have any trouble winning the American League Most Valuable Player (MVP) award even if he’s out for the season.
