Shohei Ohtani started for the Los Angeles Angles last night against the San Diego Padres. He walked off the field with the trainer after giving up back-to-back home runs in the 6th inning. It was announced that he was removed from the game due to a blister.
Shohei Ohtani was asked postgame if will be able to pitch in the All-Star game:
"I think it's going to be pretty tough. As of now, I'm planning on not pitching in the game."
Shohei Ohtani certainly could've been the starter with the stats he's had this year. He's been a good pitcher all year. In 17 games, he has a 7-4 record, 100.1 innings pitched, 3.32 ERA, 132 strikeouts, and a 1.10 WHIP.
The hope is that it's nothing serious. Injuries truly do suck, and it sucks even more when one of the best players in all of baseball won't be able to pitch. Fans we're certainly looking forward to Shohei pitching in the All-Star game, it's always a fun time to watch Shohei Ohtani pitch.
