Shohei Ohtani may prove to be baseball’s future, and what a future it could be

ANAHEIM, Calif. – While everyone else was rethinking the game, he was rethinking the player.

Shohei Ohtani’s season will end on an operating table. His team, the Los Angeles Angels, are, again, in October’s waiting room. They have over the past decade had enough bad coffee to have sated Manifest Destiny’s every wagon train, paced from here to there and back.

So, it all concludes in its usual mess: a few key players being swabbed in Betadine, Mike Trout brilliant and unrewarded, the starting rotation so thin you could see through it, ownership again seeking solutions. And this year, it would appear, there’ll be a change at manager, accounting for the last cockeyed deck chair.

So, whose ghost is happier at the rise of this kind of player- Wes Ferrell, or Chuck Bednarik?

Angels 2-way star Shohei Ohtani scheduled to return to mound Sunday vs. Astros

Let the games begin again!

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia told reporters Thursday that two-way star Shohei Ohtani is scheduled to pitch on Sunday against the Houston Astros.

It will be his first start since June 6 after it was revealed that he had suffered a UCL sprain.

Through nine starts of his debut MLB season, the 23-year-old has posted a 3.10 ERA and 1.135 WHIP while striking out 61 and walking 20 through 49.1 innings.
