Locked On Angels - Breaking News: Shohei Ohtani and his UCL Injury

Locked On Angels - Daily Podcast On The Los Angeles Angels show

Summary: We all just assumed it was just a blister. We all figured he'd be back soon enough, even taking a few at-bats in the Halo lineup. We were all wrong. Shohei Ohtani felt stiffness in his elbow following his last start, and the Angels immediately sent him to get examined. A Grade 2 UCL sprain is what they found, and after undergoing a PRP injection and stem cell treatment procedure, Ohtani will be re-evaluated in 3 weeks. While Billy Eppler and the Angels are hopeful that their prized right-hander will not need Tommy John surgery, the news does not bode well for Ohtani to pitch again this season.  This special episode focuses on the fallout from the devastating news. How does the rotation stack up? Which players will need to step up in his absence? Is the offense capable of carrying the team to a playoff berth? Tune in! Learn more about your ad choices.
