Angels' Shohei Ohtani: Set for season-ending surgery
Ohtani will undergo season-ending surgery to address a bipartite patella in his left knee.
The procedure, which Ohtani will undergo Friday in Los Angeles, typically carries an 8-to-12-week recovery timeframe, so the two-way star should be fully healed by the time spring training rolls around. According to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register, this won't affect Ohtani's recovery from Tommy John surgery; he's still expected to complete the throwing portion of his rehab in December. The 25-year-old appeared in 106 games as DH in his second year in the majors, finishing with a .286/.343/.505 slash line along with 18 home runs, 12 stolen bases and 62 RBI.
