Shohei Ohtani, the Angels’ pitcher/hitter/karaoke singer who has UCL damage, will undergo Tommy John surgery at the end of the season, the team announced today:

Shohei Ohtani, Who Needs Tommy John Surgery, Is Still Out Here Smashing Dingers

Tommy John surgery—which Angels pitcher/DH Shohei Ohtani is supposed to receive, per a team announcement today—will steal a whole year from a dominant hurler in his prime. But UCL damage won’t necessarily hold back a good hitter. And luckily for all of us, what could be devastating news for any other pitcher in…

Aw Fuck, Shohei Ohtani Needs Tommy John Surgery Aw Fuck, Shohei Ohtani Needs Tommy John Surgery

As a hitter, Shohei Ohtani has seemed pretty dang healthy since returning to the Angels lineup from a UCL sprain in his throwing elbow in July. As a pitcher, however, he was kept off the mound for nearly three months while undergoing a non-surgical rehab program. When he returned last weekend, he only got seven outs…

Shohei Ohtani Finally Smashed A Dinger Off A Lefty Shohei Ohtani Finally Smashed A Dinger Off A Lefty

Mike Scioscia has mostly protected Shohei Ohtani from lefty pitchers during his rookie season. Partly this is because the lefty-lefty matchup is often brutal for hitters; partly it’s because Albert Pujols is still kicking around, and is capable of taking those DH plate appearances and doing some damage; and partly…

Shohei Ohtani Has Proven Himself Shohei Ohtani Has Proven Himself

What’s often felt like an inconsistent and tumultuous season for rookie phenom Shohei Ohtani is shaping up to be a pretty damn impressive opening number. So much of Ohtani’s buzz quieted down when a ligament injury pulled him off the mound for most of the season, but while he’s been rehabbing in an attempt to pitch…

Shohei Ohtani Will Throw Again Soon, And He's Still Smacking Big Dingers While He Waits Shohei Ohtani Will Throw Again Soon, And He's Still Smacking Big Dingers While He Waits

The Angels are more or less sunk this year, thanks to the depth of good teams in the AL West. But Japanese rookie sensation Shohei Ohtani is still balling, despite not being allowed on a mound since June.

Shohei Ohtani Still Has That Fearsome Tater-Mashing Power Shohei Ohtani Still Has That Fearsome Tater-Mashing Power

Angels phenom Shohei Ohtani missed most of June following the bullcrap UCL injury that ended the pitching part of his season after just nine starts. Ohtani was batting .289 with a .907 OPS when the Angels shut him down, and in 71 plate appearances since his return on July 3 his batting average and slugging percentage…

MLB Tweets, Deletes Dumb, Sweaty, Racist Joke About Ichiro And Shohei Ohtani MLB Tweets, Deletes Dumb, Sweaty, Racist Joke About Ichiro And Shohei Ohtani

Someone on Major League Baseball’s social media crew tweeted and then quickly deleted a joke Friday night comparing an image of Ichiro and Shohei Ohtani greeting each other to a meme showing two cartoon Spider-Men pointing at each other in mutual recognition and surprise:

Shohei Ohtani Hit A Game-Winning Homer With A Busted Elbow And Knee Shohei Ohtani Hit A Game-Winning Homer With A Busted Elbow And Knee

Shohei Ohtani hit the ball far as fuck yesterday, 443 feet to be exact, deep into the ethers of Angel Stadium’s cavernous rock structure in center field. The looping drive was his first homer since May 17, on account of the Grade 2 UCL sprain that kept him out of the lineup from June 4 to July 3. It was the eventual…

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Three-time World Series champion and Angels hitting coach Eric Hinske burst into the clubhouse like a man possessed. Inside, the Angels relievers and a few other players, including Mike Trout, were decompressing before their May 8 game at the Rockies’ notoriously hitter-friendly ballpark.

Shohei Ohtani, Please Do The Damn Home Run Derby! Shohei Ohtani, Please Do The Damn Home Run Derby!

Shohei Ohtani doesn’t think he’s ready for the home run derby. “I don’t think I’m at that level yet,” he told reporters yesterday.

Shohei Ohtani's Splitter Is The Most Untouchable Pitch In Baseball Shohei Ohtani's Splitter Is The Most Untouchable Pitch In Baseball

Two-way star Shohei Ohtani helped the Angels end a five-game losing streak with a 110-pitch outing against the Rays Sunday. At this point, Ohtani going for nine strikeouts in 7.2 innings and generally bewitching opposing hitters isn’t much of a surprise, since he’s paired masterful control with devastating velocity…

Shohei Ohtani's Starting To Reveal All His Powers Shohei Ohtani's Starting To Reveal All His Powers

Shohei Ohtani has a fastball that he can pump up to 100 mph and dot on all four corners of the strike zone. He has a splitter that dives straight into hell and takes the souls of many batters with it. Those are two very good pitches. If you throw those two pitches exclusively, you’re basically late-era Roger Clemens…

One of the most fun things about watching a fresh new baseball darling rack up regular major-league at-bats is all the opportunities to see how the skills you’ve been hearing so much about, all those precious tools, actually manifest themselves on the field.

Shohei Ohtani smoked another home run Friday night, his fourth of the season. This one came off a sizzling 97-mph fastball from Yankees pitcher Luis Severino that appeared to be well off the plate inside:

Shohei Ohtani Threw The Ball Hard As Fuck

Baseball prince Shohei Ohtani got knocked around in his last start against the Red Sox and had to leave the game after two innings due to a blister on his pitching hand. That was a bummer, mostly because blisters have a way of being incurable nuisances capable of undermining entire seasons. So when Ohtani took the…

Curse This Shohei Ohtani Blister Curse This Shohei Ohtani Blister

After Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani started the season on a tear, hitting .367 with three homers through eight games, and posting two dominant starts that featured a five-inning stretch with 65 pitches and 10 strikeouts, it seemed his only kryptonite would be an eventual regression to numbers resembling normalcy. Enter…

Shohei Ohtani Got Yanked After Just Two Innings Shohei Ohtani Got Yanked After Just Two Innings

Shohei Ohtani had his first truly bad game of his young MLB career tonight, as the Japanese phenom only pitched two rocky innings against the Red Sox before he got pulled by his manager. Mookie Betts set the tone for the outing, hitting a 3-2 pitch into left-center field for a lead-off homer, and Ohtani couldn’t quite…
