Shohei Ohtani injury update: Angels pitcher reportedly expected to miss at least 1 start

Shohei Ohtani is expected to miss at least one start because of a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand.

According to, a stint on the disabled list also is a possibility, which would sideline him as a DH (.289/.372/.535 with six homers and 20 RBIs) as well.

Ohtani, 23, left his start Wednesday against the Royals after four innings of one-run ball with the injury.

He also left a start April 17 against the Red Sox with a similar issue.

The MLB rookie pitcher/slugger did not miss any time with the blister after that start, but he did miss one his next time through the rotation.

Ohtani has a 3.10 ERA in 49 1/3 innings pitched this season. He is allowing a .202 batting average against in his nine starts.
