Pitching season out’ Ohtani continues to run as a batter…’Ghost fork’ Senga confrontation


Ohtani Shohei (29, LA Angels), whose pitching career was suspended, continues to play as a batter.

Japanese media such as Sponichianex and Full Count said on the 25th (hereinafter Korean time), “The Angels club announced that Ohtani will accompany the New York Mets on the 26th to 28th in an away game.” I will play as the designated hitter.”소닉카지노

On the 24th, Ohtani took the mound as the second batter and starting pitcher in the first game of the double header against the Cincinnati Reds, and had a good start by recording his 44th home run of the season from the first at-bat. However, he went down the mound after 1⅓ innings as a pitcher after complaining of discomfort in his right arm. Initially, the Angels club announced that the reason for the steel plate was a symptom of ‘arm fatigue’. However, as a result of the examination, Ohtani’s condition was more serious than expected.

After Game 2 of the doubleheader, Angels general manager Peri Minassian announced that “Ohtani has been diagnosed with a torn medial collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow. He will not be able to pitch for the rest of the season.” Ohtani pitched in 23 games this season and posted a 10-5 record with a 3.14 ERA, and was also mentioned as a candidate for the American League (AL) Cy Young Award. However, he suffered a sudden elbow injury and could no longer continue the Cy Young race.

However, he will continue to compete as a hitter. Ohtani, who appeared in 126 games as a hitter and recorded a batting average of 0.304, 44 homers, 91 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.069, is considered the most influential AL MVP candidate based on his performance alone.

If Ohtani plays as the designated hitter in the game on the 26th as scheduled, he will face off against Mets starter Senga Kodai (30), a Japanese major leaguer. Senga, who signed a five-year contract with the Mets for 75 million dollars (approximately 99.3 billion won) ahead of this season and entered the major leagues, made a successful soft landing by recording 10-6 with an average margin of 3.19 in 23 appearances. Senga, who is tied for ninth in the National League in wins and 5th in ERA, is continuing his powerful pitching, recording 10.69 strikeouts per 9 innings (154 strikeouts in 129⅔ innings) with his main weapon, a forkball, called the “ghost fork.”
