OC Register: Shohei Ohtani undergoes successful Tommy John surgery

Recommended Posts

ANAHEIM — Shohei Ohtani’s Tommy John surgery on Monday went as expected, although it’s too early to know how soon he’ll be able to play next season, General Manager Billy Eppler said on Monday.

Eppler said Dr. Neal ElAttrache, the noted orthopedist who performed Ohtani’s surgery, “was pleased with what he saw” and “feels confident in the recovery process.”

Ohtani, the two-way star who just finished his rookie season with the Angels, will not be able to pitch in 2019. The Angels are expecting him back as the designated hitter in 2019, but they aren’t sure how soon.

Ohtani will get evaluations every four weeks, and each time they will get a clearer view of how soon he can return.

Ohtani finished his season with a .285 average, 22 home runs and a .925 OPS. He was named American League Rookie of the Month for September, the second time this season he won that award. He also won in April.

Ohtani was 4-2 with a 3.31 ERA in 10 starts as a pitcher, the last of which revealed that stem-cell treatment and a platelet-rich plasma injection had been insufficient to heal his damaged ulnar collateral ligament.
