He is active as a pitcher this season with 2 wins in 3 games (19 innings) and an average ERA of 0.47.
MLB.com, the official major league media outlet,메이저놀이터 shed light on Ohtani’s performance, saying, “With dizzying weapons such as a fast ball at 100 miles per hour, a highly curved slider, a messy cutter, and a disappearing splitter, Ohtani is almost invincible this season.”
Manager Phil Nevin said, “He added a change to his pitching. The adjustments he makes during games and before starts are what great pitchers do. He’s clearly one of those players and he’s always trying to get better. He threw a ball we didn’t see today,” admiring Ohtani’s performance.
Angels prospect catcher Oh Hopi, who worked with Ohtani, said, “He is changing his slider little by little. It’s what he kept doing. The ball curves a little deeper. i think it’s awesome Adjusting the pitch during the game was the most impressive to me,” he explained Ohtani’s greatness.
Ohope is also showing great form at bat. In this game, he recorded 1 hit in 3 at-bats, 1 home run, 1 RBI and 1 run, and is active with a batting average of 2.5 8 Lee (8 hits in 31 at-bats), 4 home runs, 10 RBIs, and an OPS of .991 in 9 games this season.
Japanese media Sponichi Annex said, “Ohhopi, who formed a battery with Ohtani, hit an important solo home run in the 6th inning with the Angels leading by 1 run. The catcher lead was also solid,” he praised Ohhopi.
Ohtani looked at Ohhopi and said, “It’s amazing. He doesn’t just have a long hitting power, he doesn’t just hit a good course, he seems to go in with the number of goals. If possible, I want to ease the burden of defense so that I can focus on hitting. When I pitch, I also sign the type of pitch. I want to get rid of anxiety. When I play the game, I wonder if breathing will fit better naturally,” he said, expressing his desire to help the young promising catcher.
