OC Register: Shohei Ohtani’s locker is cleared out, but Angels won’t provide update until Saturday


Recommended Posts

ANAHEIM — Shohei Ohtani’s locker in the Angels’ clubhouse was cleared of most of his personal belongings and equipment after the Angels’ 11-2 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Friday night, but the team declined to provide any further information on him until Saturday.

Ohtani suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament late last month, and agent Nez Balelo said last week Ohtani will need a procedure at some point, but he declined to say what the procedure would be or when it would occur.

Ohtani was in the clubhouse before Friday’s game, and he did a workout in the cage to determine if he could play. Ohtani has been out of the lineup since Sept. 4 because of a sore oblique.

After the game, reporters noticed that some of Ohtani’s belongings were packed in a 2023 All-Star Game bag, but many of the shoes, bats and other personal items that have filled his locker throughout the season were gone.

Angels officials huddled for about 30 minutes while two dozen reporters waited for any news on what had happened. Eventually, Angels media relations staffers said they had talked to those in charge, including Angels general manager Perry Minasian, and determined that a further update would come on Saturday.

The 29-year-old two-way star is heading into his final two weeks under contract to the Angels, ending a season that is likely to include his second American League MVP award in three years.

Ohtani is hitting .304 with 44 home runs and an OPS of 1.066. On the mound, he was 10-5 with a 3.14 ERA.

Ohtani is expected to sign a record-breaking free-agent contract this winter, perhaps for as much as $500 million.
