Shohei Ohtani, Angels aim for series split with Blue Jays

Shohei Ohtani is expected to be in the starting lineup and batting second Sunday afternoon for the Los Angeles Angels against the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin, Fla., the designated hitter feeling especially good at the plate these days thanks to feeling especially good physically.

Since joining the Angels in 2018, Ohtani's appearances as a pitcher have been limited because of an elbow injury that required surgery after the 2018 season. And he's already missed one scheduled start this season because of a blister on his finger.

The elbow injury, however, didn't affect Ohtani at the plate as much as a knee injury that resulted in surgery after the 2019 season. Ohtani hit one home run every 5.2 games in 2018, and one homer every 5.9 games in 2019.
