He also went 9-2 and posted a 3.18 ERA as a starting pitcher.
Ohtani is a unique talent that the game has not seen in generations, at least not since Babe Ruth.
And the two-way phenom is back at it today.
Ohtani will take the mound for the first time this spring as the Halos take on the Kansas City Royals at 4 p.m. ET, and fans are excited to see him back on a baseball field.

Who wouldn’t be excited to have a chance to watch him play, whether it’s pitching or hitting?
“Shotime” as he’s affectionately known, is fun to watch, and the idea of getting to see him live is very enticing for all fans of Major League Baseball.
Even if it’s just spring training, Ohtani is something to watch and may now be the new face of baseball.
The MLB lockout put the sport on hold for nearly 100 days, but what better way to come back to the sport and getting it going again than to have Ohtani do his thing?
This guy can flat out play baseball.
He has the potential to help grow the game as his future is incredibly bright.
Players like Ohtani bring pure excitement to the game, which is in need of such things following the lockout.
But seeing Ohtani play again means we’re getting close to the start of the 2022 season, and you can bet he’ll be ready to put on another show and take the baseball world by storm.
