Japan’s Ohtani, who doubles as a pitcher, is scheduled for elbow surgery… The batter is also ‘out for the season’

Major League Baseball’s Shohei Ohtani ends his season due to an elbow injury.

On the 17th (Korean time), the Los Angeles Angels토토사이트 announced, “We are placing Ohtani on the 10-day injured list (IL),” and “He will miss the remaining games and end the season early.” It was reported that Ohtani unpacked in the locker room after the game against Detroit on the 16th.

Ohtani played 23 games and 132 innings as a pitcher this season, recording 10 wins, 5 losses, an ERA of 3.14, and 167 strikeouts. As a batter, he appeared in 135 games and recorded a batting average of 0.304, 44 home runs, 95 RBI, 20 stolen bases, an on-base percentage of 0.412, a slugging percentage of 0.654, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 1.066.

However, he stopped pitching duties last month when he was diagnosed with right elbow ligament damage. This month, he was unable to play as a batsman due to pain in his right side and was eventually out for the season.

Ohtani is expected to undergo elbow surgery for next season. However, it has not yet been decided what type of surgery will be performed.

Currently, the Angels have 14 games left in the regular season. Since there is little chance of competing for a wild card, there is no reason to force Ohtani to participate.
