Ohtani will not start on Tuesday

Recommended Posts


ANAHEIM -- Though Shohei Ohtani said his left ankle was improving, the Angels' two-way star's next scheduled start on the mound has been pushed from Tuesday vs. the Orioles to this weekend's series against the Mariners, manager Mike Scioscia said after Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Yankees.

"Just to make sure this is behind him and he gets the proper workout to test it more instead of rushing in and trying to see where he is on Wednesday," Scioscia said. "So it's the best course of action for Shohei and for us."

Scioscia said Ohtani will be available to DH during the Orioles series. He did not say which game Ohtani would start in the Mariners series, which begins Friday and wraps up Sunday.

Shohei Ohtani will be available as a DH for the Angels’ upcoming series against the Orioles (from Tuesday to Thursday) but his next start on the mound won’t be until next weekend in Seattle at the earliest, manager Mike Scioscia told MLB.com’s Maria Guardado and other reporters.  Ohtani suffered a minor ankle injury while trying to beat out a grounder on Friday, and the team will hold Ohtani out of a scheduled start against the O’s in order to make sure the ankle is completely healed.  Ohtani’s availability against Baltimore indicates that the injury isn’t too serious, though he wasn’t in the lineup on Saturday or Sunday.
