Ohtani will miss his fourth consecutive game due to a “side injury”

Ohtani will miss his fourth consecutive game due to a “side injury”; he will return in a day or two.

Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (MLB) was out of the lineup for the fourth straight game due to a side injury.

The Los Angeles Angels did not start Ohtani for their home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday (Aug. 8) at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.

Ohtani hasn’t played in four days after feeling soreness in his side (obliques) during batting practice on May 5.

Ohtani, who tore a ligament in his right elbow on March 24, gave up his pitching duties for the rest of the season and has been focusing on hitting.

But after hitting his 44th home run of the season, he went 10 games without producing a home run and eventually lost the major league lead in that category to Matt Olson (46-homer, Atlanta Braves) before going down with a side injury.

“His movement and swing are better, but not good enough to start,” Angels manager Phil Nevin said, adding that he expects him to return in the next day or two.

Ohtani reportedly took batting practice in the batting cage and did some agility drills.

Ohtani is 10-5 with a 3.14 ERA as a pitcher this year, and he’s also been a standout at the plate, batting .304 (151-for-497) with 44 home runs and a 1.066 OPS 카지노사이트킴 (on-base plus slugging percentage).
