Angels manager Mike Scioscia pronounced himself optimistic about Shohei Ohtani's health after a Yahoo Sports report revealed that the team's new addition has a first-degree sprain of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. "The understanding we have is that it's something that's behind him," Scioscia said. "There's no concern. There are no restrictions. He'll be full go in spring training." Scioscia reiterated that the Angels are thinking about using Ohtani as part of a six-man rotation in 2018.
