Shohei Ohtani: Playing Time Too Stingy for Pitcher-Hitter Wunderkind

Angels at Royals The 411 Shohei Ohtani: Week Two
Lucia Summers | 16 Апреля, 2018, 06:24

I'm not sure I can give Ohtani all the credit for the increased attendance - the club drew a little more than 16,000 and 18,000 the first two nights before 20,363 showed up Wednesday - but there's no doubt in the first two weeks of the major-league season there is more curiosity about Ohtani than any player in the game. He gave up 12 home runs over those 21 innings of play. Trout is slashing.273/.388/.600 with 15 hits, five homers, 11 RBIs and 14 runs scored, while Ohtani is slashing.346/.414/.769 with nine hits, three homers, 11 RBIs and four runs scored. Paulo Orlando got Kansas City's first hit with one out and Duda wound up scoring on one of Richards' three wild pitches in the inning. And Blue, whose time at the top was brief but who seemed nearly impossibly athletic as a pitcher, was who I was thinking about Wednesday when I drove out to the Rangers' suddenly sad second ballpark soon to be tossed aside for a third just to see an even more impossibly athletic pitcher named Shohei Ohtani. We weren't using him at DH instead of Kyle Schwarber in the World Series.

"Looking at video, they score a ton of runs", Kennedy said. When you're a hitter, if you don't hit the ball on the barrel you feel it a lot more.

0-5 in their last 5 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.

Still, there is no denying that Ohtani has created a big stir back home and an outpouring of national pride. Before you know it we are through 6 ideal innings with 11 K's. Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant (batting.348), who happens to be our best hitter, but isn't coming out of the bullpen anytime soon. Insane right? That is what this is.

4-0 in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning % below.400.

Author Robert Whiting, who has written several books on Japanese baseball, including "The Meaning of Ichiro", says Ohtani has the potential to surpass the popularity of Nomo, Suzuki and Hideki Matsui. "He is very affable and could well have a long career in American baseball -- but most likely as a pitcher". As a complete simplification of the statistic, Ohanti's first week in the majors was worth more to the Angels team than 15 players entire seasons previous year. Over time, pitchers will figure out how to pitch to him and batters will figure out how to hit him. You're going to play this game in a lot of different situations over the course of a season.

Many were initially skeptical of Ohtani's prospects in America, saying it would be hard to pull it off in the major leagues.

Some have noted that much of Ohtani's success so far has come against the lowly Oakland A's, a team that is off to a rocky start.
