OC Register: Angels activate Shohei Ohtani, the hitter

Recommended Posts

SEATTLE — Shohei Ohtani, the Angels’ two-way star who is still unable to throw while waiting for his damaged ulnar collateral ligament to heal, was activated on Tuesday to join the lineup as a designated hitter. Ohtani will bat sixth Tuesday night against the Mariners.

Ohtani, who was hitting .289 with six homers and a .907 OPS, could give a boost to an Angels lineup that has struggled to consistently produce.

Ohtani was cleared to hit on Thursday, after doctors determined that enough healing had occurred with his elbow that swinging was not a risk. He will be re-evaluated in just over two weeks to see how he’s progressing towards being able to pitch.

The Angels also recalled right-hander Miguel Almonte, who had been claimed on waivers in April. They optioned pitchers Deck McGuire and Eduardo Paredes.
