Ohtani's next start will be pushed back due to "workload management"

Wonder if they're just wanting to keep his bat in the line-up for an extended run. The rotation has been solid of late so it kinda makes sense.

if so, I like it. Yankee short right field, maybe Ohtani can hit one into the upper deck and Yankee fans have a melt down.

If his bat will be in the lineup all three games I am honestly okay with this.

I think that's the intent...they need him to help the offense. 

Think this is another precursor to moves coming to help the line-up soon....the Briceno addition to the 40, releasing Schimpf, etc..

Do you guys remember when Strasburg came back from TJS and they put him on the 160 inning limit, used him up early and had to play postseason without him? Let’s not Rizzo ourselves here

Yes - and they've also mentioned that as the year goes on, he may move off the once-a-week schedule and perhaps pitch on a typical MLB rotation schedule, and that they may also let him hit when he pitches once rosters expand. It makes sense to rest him the first half of the year so we can lean on him a little more in the stretch run.

Honestly the baby bombers might hurt his confidence a little

start him in Detroit. 

They better keep his bat in the line up then 

I think this is part of it.  The KC postponement and then BoSox was a disaster.  Probably want to give him baby steps.

also give him more ABs so he can qualify.

Or maybe this is the reason?  Better to have Ohtani hit on Saturday and possibly Sunday, than have to deal with possibly pitching or not pitching or pitching again in their crap weather on Sunday.

If this is true, I don't like it. Avoiding certain teams? And what does say about Barria? And then other pitchers have to get "thrown in the fire" when their turn hasn't come up? It's a very sheltered point of view. Monitoring pitch count is one thing, but avoiding the Yanks would be degrading.

Sad about this - at the airport now flying out to New York from the UK for the weekend series, was desperately hoping to see Ohtani pitch - although as long as he’s hitting it’s some consolation 

Man, I hope you don’t get rained out bud.
