Breaking News: Just IN Dodgers Head Coach Gives Surprising Update ON Fans Favorite Top Experienced Star

Superstar Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Dodgers will not be pitching this season due to elbow surgery that he had in September, but manager Dave Roberts said to the media on Monday that he might play on the field at some point.

According to the Associated Press, Roberts stated in Seoul, South Korea, “Shohei this year is going to be the designated hitter.” “He hasn’t started his throwing routine yet, but he will once we return to the States. We’ll watch the course of that development. We will discuss that in the field if his arm is well enough. He won’t be pitching this year, as far as I know.”

This is the first official indication that Ohtani could be able to do more than just serve as the team’s designated hitter, as the Dodgers had previously assumed.

Later this week, Ohtani, who inked a $700 million, 10-year contract with the Dodgers during the winter, will begin his throwing regimen. It will be his first time throwing a baseball after having his second elbow ligament restoration surgery on September 19, according to Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic.
