The Shohei Ohtani Experience: Keep track of the Angels phenom's two-way quest

ESPN.com4 Minute Read

How serious is Ohtani's absence for the Angels?

Pedro Gomez details the problems created as the Angels place starter Shohei Ohtani on the disabled list with a sprained elbow.

As a starting pitcher and a designated hitter, Los Angeles Angels rookie Shohei Ohtani is embarking on a two-way journey that no major leaguer has successfully pulled off since Babe Ruth himself. Will Ohtani dominate on the mound and crush at the plate?

When can I see Ohtani next?

At the plate -- While Ohtani's pitching future remains unclear due to injury, he's currently a powerful lefty-hitting DH in the Angels' lineup.

On the mound -- The Angels announced Ohtani threw a bullpen session as he attempts to return to the mound late in the 2018 season.

For more on what Ohtani's injury could involve, and potential courses of action the Angels may have to take, you can read Stephania Bell's analysis of the possibilities and the risks.
