Ohtani Hits 10 Home Runs in his First Outdoor Batting After Elbow Surgery… “It Feels Good”

Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Dodgers) announced his prospects for participating in the opening game of the 2024 Major League Baseball (MLB) season held in Seoul.

According to MLB.com and ESPN, Ohtani completed outdoor batting training at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona, USA on the 13th (Korean time).

It is reported that this is Ohtani’s first time hitting a pitch in the field since undergoing elbow surgery in September of last year.

Ohtani showed 21 swings on this day and produced 10 home runs. 온라인카지노

Earlier this month, Otani said, “I am completing my rehabilitation schedule well.

“I am confident that I will participate in the opening game,” he said, but this time, he proved his health through actions rather than words.

After completing training, Shohei Ohtani said, “Overall, I felt really good.

“He swung the bat strongly and it led to good results,” he said.

Otani, who also injured his side (oblique muscle) last September, looked back and said, “It was my first time hitting outdoors since then, so I was a little cautious, but I like it overall.

I think I’ve gotten over the injury.”

“I think it’s a good sign for me as I prepare for the season opener,” he said.

This year’s official opening game of the Major League will be held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro-gu, Seoul on March 20th.

The Dodgers will play a two-game series against Ha-seong Kim’s San Diego Padres at Gocheok Dome on March 20th and 21st.

Ohtani, who doubles as a pitcher, signed a 10-year contract worth $700 million (approximately KRW 925.5 billion) with the Los Angeles Dodgers after last season, and will only play as a hitter this year.
