Ohtani indicated that he will probably not include a leg kick in his swing this year, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Ohtani had been experimenting with the leg kick prior to the suspension of spring training, and even in veering away from the adjustment, he acknowledged the quickness with which he's able to react once his front foot touches the ground. The slugger has done well enough without the leg kick through his first two big-league seasons, slashing .286/.351/.532 with 40 home runs in 792 plate appearances.
