‘Pitcher’ Ohtani, no more this year

‘Not feeling well’ after pitching second inning, leaves game
Diagnosed with right elbow ligament damage
‘Hitter’ Ohtani also out until surgery
Aaron Judge hits three home runs, snaps team’s losing streak

We won’t be seeing Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Angels) anymore this year.

“A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan revealed a torn ligament in Ohtani’s right elbow,” 성인웹툰 Angels general manager Perry Minassian said on Thursday. He will not pitch for the remainder of the season,” the Angels announced on Thursday, adding, “It is not yet known if surgery will be necessary.” Ohtani previously underwent elbow ligament splicing surgery (Tommy John surgery) in 2018, his first year in Major League Baseball (MLB).

Ohtani, who was 10-5 as a pitcher this season, started the first game of a back-to-back doubleheader against Cincinnati (4-9). Ohtani, who had skipped the rotation once before due to fatigue, looked to be on top of his game as he worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the top of the first and hit his 44th home run of the season (a two-run shot) in the bottom of the first, which moved him into a tie for the MLB lead.

Trouble came in the top of the second with runners on first and second. After his 152-mile-per-hour fastball fouled off Christian Encarnacion (24) on a two-ball, two-strike count, Ohtani signaled to the team dugout that he was “not feeling well.” He immediately walked off the mound, 일본야동 never stepped into an at-bat, and was removed from the game. Ohtani’s average fastball velocity for the day was 149.8 kilometers per hour, about 6 kilometers below his season average (155.9).

The jury is still out on Ohtani’s ability to stay in the Most Valuable Player (MVP) race. Ohtani was the designated hitter in Game 2 (3-7 loss) and went 1-for-5. He appeared in 106 games as a designated hitter in 2019 while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, but it’s unlikely he’ll be able to play the rest of the season if he needs to go under the knife. Surgery could also put him at a disadvantage in his postseason free agency negotiations.

New York Yankees captain Aaron Judge, left, celebrates with teammate Giancarlo Stanton after hitting a home run to give New York a 1-0 lead in the first inning of a U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB) baseball game against Washington, Thursday. Judge hit three home runs on the day to lead his team to a 9-1 victory.

Meanwhile, Aaron Judge (31-New York Yankees), who won the American League MVP award last year over Ohtani, had his first career three-homer game, including a grand slam, in a 9-1 victory over Washington on Sunday. The win snapped a nine-game losing streak for the Yankees, 한국야동 their first in 41 years since 1982.
