Angels to Limit Shohei Ohtani to 75 Pitches in Tuesday’s Start
April 20Michael ArinzeSportsGrid
Rhett Bollinger for MLB.com reports that the Angels will limit Shohei Ohtani to 75 pitches in Tuesday’s start against the Rangers. This will only be Ohtani’s second start of the season after a blister on his pitching hand forced the Angels to skip his turn.
Shohei Ohtani will be limited to about 75 pitches or so tomorrow in his return to the mound. He won't be in the lineup tomorrow as a precaution. And Ohtani will decide if he feels good enough to be DH in Wednesday's day game.
Los Angeles is being extra cautious with Ohtani as the Japanese right-hander has only made 13 starts since arriving in 2018. Ohtani will not be in the lineup as a further precaution, and he could be given the day off on Wednesday.
He’ll try to help the Angels even up their series with the Rangers after a 6-4 loss on Monday night. He’s yet to face the Rangers, and Brock Holt is the only hitter in the Texas lineup that’s been in the batter’s box against Ohtani. Los Angeles is as high as a -205 home favorite, and the total is set at 8.5.
