Ohtani hits 1st HR of season for Angels in 5-4 win vs. Twins

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — One week into Shohei Ohtani’s return to the Los Angeles Angels, the lineup is looking sharp.

Minnesota ace Jose Berrios bore the brunt of their batting success on Monday night.

Ohtani hit his first home run of the season, a towering two-run shot in the third inning against Berrios, and Tommy La Stella hit the go-ahead homer in the sixth to give the Angels a 5-4 victory over the Twins.

“I’ve been hitting the ball in the air recently,” Ohtani said through an interpreter. “I think it showed today that I’m improving.”

For those of you curious as for how Ohtani is doing, now that he’s playing again….

No platoon protection, no easing into the season for Ohtani. Ausmus put him behind Trout at #3, and is just leaving him there. Ohtani still looks rusty, but has been hitting some hard outs to right and right-center before that homer last night, so those are good signs.

Have the Angels said what their plan is for Ohtani? Do they even have a plan or are they just going to see what happens?
