shohei ohtani had been batted second and designated for the match against baltimore orioles, but minutes before the start of the match he was replaced by Brandon Drury after presenting discomfort to his right oblique. With this, the alarms are set off in the city of Los Angeles, because this injury could take the Asian player out for the rest of the season.
Hours before the commitment, Shohei Ohtani’s agent Naz Balelo spoke to the media regarding his client’s elbow injury and commented that the player is evaluating all the possibilities, but he is not sure if he will undergo surgery.
Right oblique injury is very recurrent in Ohtani and it is caused by his hitting mechanics. In recent years, they have tried to convince the player to trade her, but he refuses.
Right now the Los Angeles team has very few chances of qualifying and it is surprising that they do not stop Shohei Ohtani to begin the recovery process of his right elbow.
One of the things that may be preventing the Japanese superstar from having surgery on his pitching elbow is that he is a free agent this season and many teams are interested in signing him.
We must wait for what statement the Angels release after finishing their meeting today. If it is something minor, the player can be evaluated day by day and if not, he will fall on the injured list.
