Sometimes even the best players in the business struggle to produce at certain moments.
In that case, they must get creative and try whatever they possibly can to fix things.
While he has struggled a bit at the plate, picking up just one extra-base hit, Ohtani may have found a solution.
Cameras caught him in the Angels dugout on Monday night trying a little something new to wake up his bat.
It appears that last year’s American League MVP can do more than just pitch, hit, and run.
Perhaps he has a future as a medical doctor when his bat isn’t going.

Shohei Ohtani, M.D.?
Ohtani is a man of many talents, but his sense of humor was on full display here.
When you’re slumping, you’re willing to try anything and everything to turn things around.
In Ohtani’s case, it was giving his bat CPR.
This is absolutely hilarious to watch and it’s good to see Ohtani not get too down about it this early in the season.
Maybe it’ll work.
Ohtani is capable of many things.
Who’s to say he can’t revive dead bats.
If it worked and Ohtani goes on a tear, then maybe we’ll all look back at this as the historic moment where he did something that had never previously been done, that being giving new life to baseball bats with CPR.
Wouldn’t that be something?
We’ll see if it ultimately works out or if Ohtani has to resort to other measures in order to resurrect his fallen bat and get hot again.
