Shohei Ohtani has been without a doubt the best player in the American League this season, the month of June he completed it with some dream numbers, however this week he was injured and today on his 29th birthday, it was revealed that the star player of the Angeles Angels, he may not be able to display his full repertoire at the next All-Star Game.
After yesterday's game against the San Diego Padres, in one of his worst starts from the mound, the Japanese star had to leave due to a bubble and at the end he told the journalists that he will only be able to hit in the Game of the stars,
“It's going to be pretty tricky, from now on I plan on not launching. I have like nine, 10 days until the next opening, so I hope to heal in time”, declared “The Phenomenon”.
More injuries for the Los Angeles Angels
