Shohei Ohtani News
Los Angeles Angels two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani (elbow) underwent successful elbow surgery on Tuesday. This was not Tommy John surgery, but it will still limit the two-way superstar to designated hitter duties in 2024. Ohtani won't pitch at all next season, but is expected to be able to hit at the beginning of the 2024 season. At least Ohtani will be able to contribute in some way next season. The expectation is that Ohtani will be able to resume his two-way hitting and pitching during the 2025 season.
Los Angeles Angels designated hitter/starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani (oblique) has been placed on the 10-day injured list and will be out for the remainder of the regular season. The 29-year-old superstar was also diagnosed with a torn UCL in his right elbow last month but was still serving as the Angels' DH up until September 4, when he strained his oblique. He's now done for the regular season, and most likely, has played his last game as a member of the Los Angeles Angels. Ohtani will hit free agency for the first time this offseason and will have no shortage of bidders, despite the fact his elbow will require surgery at some point. Despite missing the final month of the regular season, he's still the odds-on favorite to take home his second AL MVP. He'll end the year with a .304/.412/.654 batting line to go along with 44 homers, 95 RBI, and 20 stolen bases over 599 plate appearances. As a pitcher, he put up a 10-5 record, 3.14 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 167:55 K/BB ratio over 132 innings (23 starts). Just ridiculous.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (oblique) cleared out his locker at Angel Stadium on Friday. The Angels will offer a statement on the 29-year-old's situation on Saturday, as Jeff Fletcher notes that they are aware of this development. Ohtani was last seen in Anaheim's lineup on Sep. 3 before straining his oblique during batting practice on Sep. 4. The Angels could be preparing to turn their attention toward Ohtani's likely surgery to repair his torn UCL, as well as his impending free agency this winter. If this indeed signals a wrap for Ohtani in 2023, then what a show the two-way superstar put on. The AL MVP front runner hit .304 (151-for-497) with an AL-best .412 OBP, 44 home runs and eight triples to go with 95 RBI, 102 runs scored, and 20 stolen bases. As a pitcher, he garnered a 3.14 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 167:55 K:BB over 132 innings. The Halos will clear things up later on Saturday.
Los Angeles Angels designated hitter and starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani enjoyed another excellent season both at the plate and in the field, making him perhaps the best fantasy option heading into next season in leagues where he has eligibility both as a designated hitter and as a starting pitcher. The slugger hit .273 with a .356 on-base percentage, 34 home runs, and 11 stolen bases in 666 plate appearances for the Angels last season, and while his walk rate dropped a bit to 10.8%, his strikeout rate as a hitter dipped as well. Ohtani struck out 24.2% of the time, a career-low that not only helped him make more contact but also saw him post his highest batting average in a single season since the 2019 campaign as he hit .273. More contact is generally a good thing for the 28-year-old and fantasy managers alike. Ohtani finished in the 92nd percentile or better in xBA, hard-hit rate, xwOBA, barrel rate, and xSLG. On the mound, the Angels standout was similarly effective, logging a 2.33 ERA, a 2.40 FIP, and 219 strikeouts in 166 innings of work. All were career-bests for Ohtani, who continued to miss bats at a decidedly above-average rate with a 12.4% swinging strike percentage and a 33.2% strikeout rate -; the latter of which was in the 94th percentile league-wide. The veteran's ability to provide elite production as both a hitter and pitcher cements him as perhaps the top fantasy option heading into the 2023 season.
