Shohei Ohtani on the mound, one of Major League Baseball’s major draws for the All-Star Game, appears to have been gone. After leaving Tuesday’s Los Angeles Angels’ 8-5 defeat to the San Diego Padres with a blister on his right middle finger, Ohtani said he doesn’t anticipate pitching in next week’s showcase.
The bottom of the sixth inning saw the right-handed Ohtani removed from the game after giving up back-to-back home runs to Xander Bogaerts and 카지노 Jake Cronenworth on three pitches. This was the first time in Ohtani’s career that he had done so. The Angels were down 5-1 to the Padres when he left the field with a trainer.
“It’s going to be pretty tough. As of now I’m planning on not pitching,” Ohtani said through an interpreter.
“When I came out of the game I was kind of in the moment, so we will see about going forward the next few days,” Ohtani said. “On the pitching side, I have like nine, 10 days until the next start so hopefully I will heal in time.”
After being chosen for the American League pitching staff by players and chosen as a designated hitter by fans, Ohtani was named a two-way All-Star for the third consecutive year over the weekend. It’s unclear, though, whether Ohtani will start the All-Star Game in Seattle’s T-Mobile Park next week because to the injury.
“It’s my understanding they put an acrylic nail on there because of where it was cracked and it might have just irritated the skin on the side of the finger,” Angels manager Phil Nevin said. “It felt like he just didn’t have command of his pitches going into the sixth and we talked about it and he felt good and warmed up and he gave me a thumbs up.”
The manager of the Angels, Phil Nevin, stated that he doesn’t think Ohtani’s future hitting abilities will be significantly affected by the blister.
Ohtani is an outfielder, pitcher, and designated hitter in the Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Los Angeles Angels. He is also a professional baseball player from Japan. He had previously played for the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters of the Pacific League of Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB).
He made history in 2021 by becoming the first player in big league history to be selected to both the pitcher and position player All-Star teams.
He received the 2021 American League Most Valuable Player Award in recognition of his accomplishments. He followed this up in 2022 by becoming the first player in the modern period to meet the requirements of 3.1 plate appearances and one 온라인카지노 inning pitched per game with 586 at-bats and 166 innings pitched, respectively, to qualify for both the hitting and pitching leaderboards in a single season.
Internationally, Ohtani played for Japan in the 2023 World Baseball Classic. After Team Japan beat Team USA, he was named the tournament’s MVP. With two outs in the top of the ninth inning and a 3-2 lead, Ohtani struck out Angels teammate and Team USA captain Mike Trout on a full count to win the game. It was one of the most watched baseball games in history.
