Manager Brad Ausmus said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Ohtani (elbow) to be ready for the beginning of spring training, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Ohtani underwent Tommy John surgery in early October and has continued to progress on the right track, though the Angels have refrained from putting any sort of timetable on the 24-year-old since it's abundantly clear the organization is not going to rush him back until he's fully healthy. That shouldn't come as a surprise considering Ohtani will exclusively serve as a DH for the club in 2019 following his elbow procedure. Continue to expect updates on Ohtani's status throughout the winter.

Ohtani is set for an evaluation by doctors from the United States sometime in January. Although he won't be ready to begin a hitting program just yet, it's positive news that he's continuing to make significant progress without setbacks. Expect more news on Ohtani's recovery to surface over the course of the next few months.
Ohtani (elbow) said his recovery from Tommy John surgery is going well, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. "I feel like so far it's going really well, no setbacks," Ohtani said. "I think I'm right on schedule and maybe a little bit ahead."
Ohtani underwent surgery at the beginning of October, which will keep him from pitching until 2020 -- though he's still expected to be able to hit in 2019. The two-way star is making encouraging progress, as he recently regained full range of motion in his elbow, according to Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. That said, a concrete timetable for Ohtani isn't expected to come into focus into at least January.

Ohtani went under the knife at the beginning of October, and he's inching closer to regaining full extension of his elbow. While the two-way superstar is making encouraging progress, general manager Billy Eppler said a concrete timetable for Ohtani won't emerge until at least January. Though he won't be able to pitch until 2020, Ohtani is expected to be able to hit in 2019.
Ohtani will undergo Tommy John surgery next week, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
The Angels will let Ohtani play out the season before sending him to Dr. Neal ElAttrache for the procedure. While the surgery will prevent Ohtani from pitching in 2019, he's expected to be able to hit during the season while his elbow recovers. More should be known after he goes under the knife. Ohtani is hitting .280/.361/.564 with 21 homers and nine stolen bases through 99 games this season, and he posted a 3.31 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 63:22 K:BB prior to suffering the injury.
