OC Register: Angels GM Billy Eppler says Shohei Ohtani ‘looked good’ in 2 simulated games over the weekend

Recommended Posts

Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Monday he was impressed with Shohei Ohtani’s two days of workouts in simulated games over the weekend, as the club decides when to activate him.

“He looked good,” Eppler said of the two simulated games. “He was making good decisions in the batter’s box, impacting the baseball. You could tell that he had really kept himself in elite physical condition during the time on the disabled list. All in all, we were pleased with how he looks physically and how he was running and the shape he kept himself in.”

Ohtani had 20 at-bats against Angels minor league pitchers in two simulated games on Saturday and Sunday, with another workout to go. Monday’s workout will not include seeing any live pitching, Eppler said.

The Angels have made no decisions about when Ohtani will return to the lineup, but considering the volume of work he’s gotten in the past few days and the reviews, it would not be a surprise for the Angels to activate him on Tuesday.

Ohtani is just over three weeks removed from undergoing stem-cell therapy and a platelet-rich plasma injection to help heal his damaged ulnar collateral ligament. Although he can’t pitch, he was cleared to take batting practice on Thursday. Monday would be his fifth consecutive day of workouts that included hitting.

Eppler also said Garrett Richards was scheduled for a bullpen session on Monday. Richards, who is on the disabled list because of a hamstring injury, is expected to start on Wednesday in Seattle, if all goes well with his bullpen.
