Default Shohei Ohtani - Injury

Shohei Ohtani, Angels
The right-hander was placed on the disabled list Friday with a Grade 2 sprain of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, and he received both platelet-rich plasma and stem-cell injections. When addressing reporters following the announcement of the injury, Angels general manager Billy Eppler said the club remained optimistic that Ohtani can avoid Tommy John surgery. "This is completely treatable with the biologic prescription that the doctors recommended," Eppler said.

The Angels also tweeted that Ohtani would be re-evaluated in three weeks and an update on his treatment would be provided at the time. On Sunday night, ESPN's Pedro Gomez said on SportsCenter said that the 23-year-old two-way phenom will "probably" need elbow surgery after all, which would force Ohtani to miss the rest of the season and likely keep him off the mound for all of 2019, though it's possible he could return to serve as a designated hitter sooner than that, as the timetable for hitters returning from TJ is shorter than it is for pitchers. The club has not commented on Gomez's report, and it appears the long-term treatment plan for Ohtani's elbow has still not been finalized.
