LA Angels Player Shohei Ohtani’s season might be over, as the Los Angeles Angels announced on Saturday that Shohei Ohtani has been placed on the 10-day injured with an oblique injury, and will not be playing this year.
According to CBS Sports, GM Perry Minasian told reporters that the LA Angels player will have a procedure on his elbow soon, and will remain with the team through the end of the regular season. Ohtani also has a torn ligament in his right (pitching) elbow.
The LA Angels player has not played since September 3 because of his oblique injury, the Angels has continued to list him as day to day since he initially hurt his oblique taking batting practices on September 4, and in the recent days had gone through pregame workout but was unable to play in the actual game.
The news about the LA Angels player’s locker being cleared out came a few hours after third baseman Anthony Rendon confirmed that he has a fractured tibia, and said he did not know why the team had hid the diagnosis. The Angels have a tendency to be misleading with injury issues.
It is likely that the LA Angels player has played his final game with the team. He will be a free agent this offseason and has said that he wants to play with a contender, something that the Angels are not.
According to Fox News on MSN.com, on September 4, Nez Balelo of CAA, said that the LA Angels player intends to be a two way player again. Balelo added that the LA Angels player will be ready when the bell rings for the start of the next season.
The 29 year old LA Angels player produced another impressive season, as a pitcher, he went 10-5 with a 3.14 ERA. As a hitter, he is leading the American League with 44 homers, and his 1.066 OPS is second best in the majors.
The LA Angels player future has been a constant source of speculation this season which increased after the Angels fell out of the playoff race last August.
