There is no doubt that Shohei Ohtani (29) will do both (two-batting).”
Ohtani, the LA Angels’ two-hitting star, appeared as the second hitter and starting pitcher in the first game of the ‘2023 Major League’ double header against the Cincinnati Reds held at the Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California, USA on the 24th of last month (Korean time).바카라
At the time, Ohtani cruised by hitting his 44th home run of the season, but left the mound after feeling discomfort in his elbow after one out in the top of the second inning. At the time, the club explained, “Ohtani was replaced due to arm fatigue,” but Angels general manager Perry Minassian later said, “Ohtani has been confirmed to have damaged ligaments in his right elbow and will not pitch for the remainder of this season. Will he undergo surgery?” “We haven’t talked about it yet,” he said, informing him of his injury.
There is a lot of talk about Ohtani’s elbow injury. There is also a view that the person should undergo elbow ligament reconstruction surgery (Tommy John surgery), which requires long rehabilitation. Since it takes about a year and a half to recover, many predict that he will not be able to be on the mound for some time in 2025 as well as next season.
However, Ohtani’s agent, Nez Valero, met with local reporters ahead of the ‘2023 Major League’ match between the Angels and the Baltimore Orioles held at the Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California, USA on the 5th and mentioned Ohtani’s current physical condition and future plans, mentioning Ohtani’s elbow ligament injury. He stated that he could not give a definite answer about reconstructive surgery.
“Ohtani’s elbow needs surgery,” Valero said, “but it may not be elbow ligament reconstruction surgery.” And it was reported that normal batting will be possible with the opening of the 2024 season.
Additionally, Otani’s ability to pitch is attracting many people’s attention. Since the injured area is the elbow ligament, which is sensitive to pitchers, there are doubts as to whether Ohtani will be able to return to the big league mound.
In response, Valero said, “There is no doubt that Ohtani will do both (two-batting). Of course, ‘when he can do it’ is a question, but we are still evaluating it positively.”
Otani is moving one step closer to becoming a legend, surpassing Babe Ruth, with impressive performance in a double-batting job that seemed only possible in comics. Despite facing the obstacle of an elbow injury, he plans to continue playing romantic baseball by showing his unwavering and strong will.
