A torn elbow ligament can’t stop Shohei Ohtani (29, LA Angels). Ohtani has hit a double in three straight games while on the DL. He’s hit safely in four straight games.
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim hosted the New York Mets at Citi Field in New York, New York, on April 27 (ET).
Ohtani, who started the game as the Angels’ No. 2 designated hitter, hit a double to center field off Carlos Carrasco of the New York Mets with the bases loaded in the first inning.
Ohtani then scored on Brandon Drury’s subsequent single with runners on first and second to give his team the lead.
It was Ohtani’s fourth straight game with a hit, dating back to the first game of a doubleheader against the Cincinnati Reds on April 24. He has hit a double in three straight games, dating back to Game 2 of the doubleheader on April 24.
Ohtani also came into this three-game series with a torn ligament in his elbow, a major injury that he battled back from to hit a double in Game 2 on April 26.안전놀이터
Of course, the torn ligaments in his right elbow have not been known to affect his batting, as he is a left-handed hitter. He also doesn’t play defense.
But he hasn’t let the revelation of an injury that could have required surgery discourage him.
