Shohei Ohtani injury update: Angels star unlikely to pitch in 2020

Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani appears to have thrown his last pitch in the 2020 MLB season. 

One day after being diagnosed with a forearm strain, Angels manager Joe Maddon said he doesn’t believe Ohtani will pitch again this year.

“I’m not anticipating him pitching at all this year,” Maddon said. “In whatever kind of throwing program, it’ll be very conservative. I don’t have any projection on that other than he’s not going to pitch this year.”

Maddon did add, however, that Ohtani has been cleared to serve as designated hitter without any restrictions.
