OC Register: Angels manager Joe Maddon says Shohei Ohtani’s stiff back is ‘nothing alarming’


Recommended Posts

ANAHEIM — Shohei Ohtani has been slowed over the past few days by some back stiffness, but Manager Joe Maddon said he wasn’t concerned.

“He’s feeling good,” Maddon said Saturday. “Obviously we’re going to be cautious with him now. I’m optimistic he’ll be able to take his turn next turn next week. Nothing alarming. Just felt a little stiffness. Yesterday, he felt he was in a pretty good place.”

Ohtani is set to resume his role as a two-way player for the first time since 2018. He pitched in an intrasquad game Tuesday and walked seven of the 10 batters he faced.

As for at the plate, Maddon said Ohtani will be able to hit in an intrasquad game soon, once the stiffness is gone.
