Mon Oct 410:21Shohei Ohtani Ends The Year With A Home Run
Los Angeles Angels designated hitter/starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani had one hit -- a home run -- in three at-bats during Sunday's 7-3 win over the Seattle Mariners. It was a solo shot in the first inning that gave him 100 RBI on the season. He also walked twice, his 20th and 21st walks in his last 14 games. He ends the season with a .257/.372/.592 slash line, along with 46 home runs and 26 stolen bases. He also finishes the year with impressive numbers on the mound, as he pitched to a 3.18 ERA, 29.3 K% and 1.09 WHIP over 130 1/3 innings. This production has made him the American League MVP front-runner, and Ohtani should be a first-round draft pick next season in almost every league.

Sun Oct 313:33Shohei Ohtani Leading Off In Season Finale
Los Angeles Angels designated hitter/starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani will be leading off for just the second time this month in the team's season finale against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday. Outfielder Brandon Marsh, who has been the team's primary leadoff hitter, is out of the starting lineup for the game. Ohtani has mostly hit out of the No. 2 spot this year. He's had a fantastic year at the plate, slashing .257/.371/.588 with 45 home runs, 26 stolen bases, 99 RBI and 102 runs. He's done pitching for the year. He made 23 starts on the mound and went 9-2 with a 3.18 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP.

Wed Sep 2918:33Shohei Ohtani Won't Pitch Again In 2021
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani will not take the mound again this year, according to Angels manager Joe Maddon. He will only serve as a hitter the rest of the way. Ohtani's 2021 season as a pitcher comes to an end with a 9-2 record, a 3.18 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP and a 29.3% strikeout rate. His two-way abilities have made him a one-of-a-kind asset in many fantasy leagues this year. For anyone still alive amidst championship week, he should still help with some sturdy offensive numbers the rest of the way. Over 150 games on the year, he's slashed .256/.370/.592 with 45 home runs, 24 stolen bases, 98 RBI and 99 runs.

Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (9-2) pitched a brilliant game against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday, throwing seven innings with one run, no walks, and 10 strikeouts. He had little run support, however, and the Angels ended up losing 5-1. It's his second start in a row with 10 strikeouts and fourth overall on the year. Over 23 starts, the AL-MVP favorite has a 3.18 ERA, 29.3 K%, 8.3 BB%, and 1.09 WHIP across 130.1 IP. There's no word on if Ohtani will start again this season. He'll still help fantasy managers with his bat the rest of the way and has a .258/.371/.595 slash line with 45 HRs and 24 SBs.

Overall, he's slashing .255/.364/.589 with 45 HRs, 95 RBI, 96 runs, and 24 SBs across 149 games. However, since the All-Star break, he's slugged just .433 with 12 HRs. He'll continue to DH the rest of the season but isn't guaranteed to make his last start on Sunday against the Seattle Mariners. He's started 22 games this season and has a 3.28 ERA with a 28.9 K%. Fantasy managers should stay updated, as he's a must-start if he does face the lowly Mariners lineup.

If Ohtani does pitch, fantasy managers will want to start him against the Mariners bottom-of-the-league offense.

Mon Sep 2010:13Shohei Ohtani Strikes Out 10 In No-Decision
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani was sharp on the mound Sunday, striking out 10 in eight innings of work during the 3-2 loss to the Oakland Athletics. He allowed two runs on five hits, three walks and one home run as well. The outing ties his career-high for innings pitched in a game, which was set in August of this year. He now owns a 3.28 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP and 28.9 strikeout percentage. Ohtani also reached base twice, going 0-for-2 with a couple of walks. He's been one of the better hitters this season, producing a .257/.360/.592 slash line, 44 home runs and 23 steals thanks to a huge first half. However, since August, he's hitting just .205 with seven home runs and a .377 slugging percentage. Still, Ohtani is one of the most valuable fantasy options in baseball in every format.

Sat Sep 1809:52Shohei Ohtani Will Start Sunday
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani will start Sunday's game against the Oakland Athletics, according to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com. There was some doubt that Ohtani would take the mound again this season, but he felt good to go after a Friday bullpen session. Ohtani owns a 9-2 record, 3.36 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 28.8 K%. His pitching, along with his .953 OPS and 44 HRs, has made him a premier fantasy player. He'll continue to DH every game he isn't pitching, and hopefully, he can get at least two more starts in before the season's end.

Thu Sep 1617:19Shohei Ohtani Won't Make His Next Start On Friday
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (arm) is not going to make his scheduled start against the Oakland Athletics on Friday. Ohtani reportedly felt sore after playing catch on Wednesday. According to beat reporter Jeff Fletcher, the team still hopes that he will pitch again this year. There have been no talks of shutting him down at this point. Additionally, Angels manager Joe Maddon stated that Ohtani isn't scheduled to see a doctor due to the soreness. Maddon believes that it could just be late season fatigue. The Angels' two-way star has made 21 starts on the year and has gone 9-2 with a 3.36 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP.

Tue Sep 1423:58Alex Cobb Set To Start Thursday, Shohei Ohtani Starting Friday
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Alex Cobb (wrist) is expected to make Thursday's start against the Chicago White Sox, according to manager Joe Maddon. Cobb has been on the injured list since July 30 with right wrist inflammation and hasn't pitched in any game since. It's good news for fantasy managers, and hopefully, he can put up the same numbers he was before being sidelined. Cobb was 7-3 with a 3.82 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 25.7 K% over 77.2 innings. Even if he isn't as sharp, he'll likely be a safe option in many fantasy leagues, generating enough strikeouts while keeping his ERA below 4. Maddon also announced that starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani will take the hill and face the Oakland Athletics on Friday.

Sat Sep 1110:37Shohei Ohtani Struggles On The Mound, Thrives At The Plate
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (9-2) hitter didn't look good in Friday's start, pitching just 3.1 innings in the 10-5 defeat to the Houston Astros. He took the loss giving up six runs on nine hits with just one strikeout and no walks. Ohtani's been pretty consistent this season, so it was surprising to see him struggled so mightily. He has a 3.36 ERA with a 28.8 K%, 1.12 WHIP, and 12 quality starts across 21 pitching appearances. Ohtani did help out with his bat, though, going 1-for-1 with a home run and two walks. He's had an unspectacular second half at the dish, as he's hit .222 with a .819 OPS since the All-Star break but still owns a .259/.360/.615 slash line with 44 HRs, 94 RBI, 90 runs, and 23 SBs over 137 games. Fantasy managers should start Ohtani in every format on both sides of the ball, which shouldn't change for the remainder of the season.

Wed Sep 819:50Shohei Ohtani Will Make Next Start On Friday
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani will make his next start on the mound on Friday in the series opener with the Astros, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register. Ohtani's latest pitching performance came against the Rangers last Friday, where he earned the win by allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight over seven innings of work. He's been having a great year on the mound and at the plate, as he will enter Friday's outing with a 9-1 record, 2.97 ERA, 1.071 WHIP and 29.7 percent strikeout rate over 112 innings of work. It's really a no-brainer: make sure he's in your lineup on Friday.

Tue Sep 718:11Shohei Ohtani Out Of The Lineup Tuesday
Los Angeles Angels pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani will not be in the lineup Tuesday for an interleague game against the San Diego Padres. Fantasy managers don't have to worry, however, as the two-way phenom is simply sitting out because the game is being played in a National League park so he can't DH. Time off could be good for Ohtani, who is still rocking a .255/.335/.607 slash line on the season but has cooled off at the plate over the last month. Expect him back in the lineup later this week against the Houston Astros.

Sat Sep 410:11Shohei Ohtani Looks Sharp Friday
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (9-1) was great for seven innings on the mound in Friday's 3-2 victory over the Texas Rangers. He allowed two runs on seven hits, struck out eight, and walked two while picking up the win. He didn't help himself out with the bat, though, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout. The start lowered his season ERA to 2.97, and he now has a 29.7 K%, along with a 1.07 WHIP. He's been cold at the plate recently, slashing .194/.333/.388 since August, but still owns a .970 OPS with 42 HRs over 132 games. He should be started on both sides of the ball in every format, contributing to almost every category.

He has a 5-0 record with a 2.20 ERA over his last seven starts and has hit .125/.323/.375 with two home runs, two RBI, and three stolen bases in his last 24 plate appearances.

Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (hand) won't make his next start on Tuesday against the New York Yankees, according to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com. Ohtani exited Saturday's game after being hit in the hand by a fastball while up to bat. He has still been able to hit after the injury, but manager Joe Maddon is unsure when his next start will be. Right-hander Jaime Barria will start in Ohtani's place. It's unfortunate for fantasy managers if he misses extended time, as he has been a great asset on both sides of the ball. He has produced a 3.00 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, 29.9 K%, and a 9.2 BB% on the mound, as well as a .986 OPS with the bat.

Los Angeles Angels designated hitter/pitcher Shohei Ohtani (hand) was hit in the hand by a fastball from San Diego Padres Ryan Weathers in the first inning of Saturday's game. The umpire ruled that he was swinging on the pitch and he was called out on strikes on the play. The two-way Angels star underwent X-rays during the game and they came back clean. Ohtani stayed in the game and wound up going 0-for-4, but he walked, stole a base and scored two runs. Through 125 games on the year, Ohtani is slashing .264/.363/.623 with an MLB-leading 41 home runs to go along with 20 stolen bases, 89 RBI and 85 runs. Oh, and he's also 8-1 on the mound with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP.

Thu Aug 2610:30Shohei Ohtani Has Rare Poor Start Wednesday
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani had an ugly outing on Wednesday, pitching five innings, allowing four runs with seven strikeouts and no walks. The day didn't start well, as he surrendered two long balls in the first inning, and he gave up another in the fourth. He was unable to help out with the bat either, taking an 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. He's been a consistent starter all season, posting a 3.00 ERA with a 1.06 WHIP and a 29.9 K%. Fantasy managers should look past the blunder and expect Ohtani to be himself again in his next start against the New York Yankees.

Thu Aug 1910:20Shohei Ohtani Goes Eight Strong, Homers In Win
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani (8-1) impressed on the mound Wednesday, pitching eight innings, striking out eight, and walking none while picking up the win. The only blemish on the night was a Willi Castro home run in the fifth inning. He produced on offense as well, going 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the eighth to help secure the 3-1 victory. It was another example of why Ohtani is one of the most exciting players in baseball. He now has a 2.79 ERA with 120 strikeouts in 100 IP, and he's blasted 40 HRs with a 1.011 OPS. He continues to be one of the best fantasy options on both sides of the ball and is a must-start every day.
