    • Angels' Shohei Ohtani: In Tuesday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ohtani (finger) is starting at designated hitter and batting third Tuesday against the Twins. He checked out fine after getting hit on the right hand by a pitch in Monday's game, and won't have to miss any action as a result. Ohtani is hitting .250 with two home runs in 55 plate appearances this season.

    • Angels' Shohei Ohtani: X-rays negative on finger
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ohtani was cleared of any structural damage to his right ring finger after the X-rays he required following Monday's 3-1 loss to the Twins returned negative, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Ohtani was struck on the hand by a pitch in his eighth-inning plate appearance and was pulled from the contest. One batter later, the Angels lost Andrelton Simmons to what appeared to be a significant ankle sprain, with manager Brad Ausmus noting after the game that Simmons' setback was a greater concern than Ohtani's. The 24-year-old phenom's test results support the notion that he avoided a serious injury, but it's possible that Ohtani is still withheld from action while he manages pain in his right hand. Ohtani is slashing .250/.345/.375 with two home runs and a 30.9 percent strikeout rate through 55 plate appearances this season.

    • Angels' Shohei Ohtani: Right hand injury
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ohtani was hit on the right hand in his presumably final at-bat Monday night against the Twins. To add insult to injury, he struck out on the pitch, as he was ruled to be swinging on the play. He was in a lot of pain, getting looked at right on the field.

    • Ohtani (elbow) is now throwing four days a week after previously throwing just three times per week, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. The Angels have said that Ohtani's throwing schedule won't affect his ability to remain in the lineup, and that's indeed been the case, as he's sat just once since returning from the injured list. He should continue as a regular designated hitter for the rest of the season but won't pitch in a game until 2020.

    • Ohtani went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Twins. While he's now hitting .321 (9-for-28) since coming off the IL, it was Ohtani's baserunning blunders that decided the game for the Angels. The second-year player got thrown out trying to go first to third on a single in the sixth inning, helping to snuff out the team's only rally of the night, then got gunned down at the plate to end the eighth on a play that also resulted in Minnesota catcher Mitch Garver suffering an ankle injury. TOOTBLAN's aside, Ohtani will remain a key part of the Angels' offense as the regular DH.
