LA Angels’ Ohtani Shohei has been excluded from the starting lineup for nine consecutive games. Curiosity is mounting when Otani returns.
Otani missed the game against the Baltimore Orioles due to a right side injury on the 5th (Korea Standard Time) and was excluded from the starting lineup for nine consecutive games until the match against the Seattle Mariners on the 13th.메이저놀이터
On the previous day, Otani was included in the starting lineup for the first time in eight games ahead of the match against Seattle, but failed to play in the end. Otani’s absence was finalized as the Angels revised the lineup. There is still a question mark on the condition of the body.
Angels manager Phil Nevin said on MLB Dotcom, “I made a lineup without Otani today. But one day you’ll tell me you’re ready to play. “Then we will put Otani in.”
“I was sure Otani got better on Tuesday (12th), but it wasn’t 100% when I swung in the batting cage after warming up. “I can’t play yet,” he added.
This season, Otani had 10 wins, 5 losses, and a 3.14 ERA in 23 games as a pitcher, and as a batter, he batted .304 with 44 home runs, 95 RBIs and 20 steals in 135 games. The Angels have 16 games left until the end of the season. Attention is focusing on whether Otani will be able to add a record with his return.
The Angels will wrap up three consecutive away games after a game against Seattle on the 14th. He will play three consecutive home games against the Detroit Tigers from the 16th.
