What a night and what a start to a career for Ohtani. He’s a one of a kind talent and he continues to prove it was the right call to let him hit.
Ohtani is picking up right where he left off last year at the plate, despite undergoing Tommy John surgery. He’s hitting .281 with 8 home runs and 26 RBIs.
