Shohei Ohtani To Undergo Season-Ending Knee Surgery

Angels DH Shohei Ohtani will undergo surgery on his left knee tomorrow, as per a statement from team GM Billy Eppler (Twitter link).  The procedure will focus on Ohtani’s bipartite patella, and it will keep Ohtani on the mend for roughly eight to twelve weeks.

Everything is the f*ing worst.

Well, at least this is coming at the end of the season.

So ... he wasn't quite as good this year as last as his HR/PA and HR/FB rates actually dropped in the Year of the Rabbit and his walk rate was lower too. But generally pretty stable production. Now we have to speculate what effect this might have on his pitching.
