Nevin hopes to return against Seattle on Dec. 12
Nevin: “He’s feeling much better”

By Sang-cheol Lee = Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Angels), who has been on the disabled list after feeling side pain, is expected to make his return against the Seattle Mariners on Dec. 12.

Ohtani did not play in the Angels’ 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Nov. 11 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.

Ohtani has now missed seven consecutive games after complaining of a sore right side during batting practice on May 5 against the Baltimore Orioles.

It’s the first time in four years that the two-hitter has missed seven consecutive games since joining the major leagues in 2018, after undergoing surgery on his left knee in September 2019.

Fortunately, Ohtani’s injury is not serious. He’s been taking batting practice again and preparing for his return.

Barring any major setbacks, Ohtani is expected to play against Seattle on Dec. 12.

“It’s most realistic that he’ll play tomorrow,” manager Phil Nevin said on Nov. 11, adding, “I watched him take batting practice yesterday and he’s looking a lot better.”

Ohtani left the game against the Cincinnati Reds on Aug. 24 after feeling discomfort in his right arm during the second inning, and a medical examination confirmed a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.카지노

Ohtani hasn’t taken the mound since, but he has appeared in games as a designated hitter.

Ohtani played in 135 games as a designated hitter this season, batting .304 with 44 home runs, 95 RBI, 102 runs scored and a 1.066 OPS.
