Say goodbye! Shohei Ohtani won’t pitch for Angels again in remaining MLB 2021

Say goodbye! On the afternoon of this Wednesday, September 29, it was announced that Shohei Ohtani will not pitch again for the remainder of Season 2021 from MLB with Angels of Anaheim. Joe Maddon reported that his star will only play as a hitter during the last games of the year. The decision would have been made by both the organization and the player.

Joe Maddon came out to announce this day that we have already seen Shohei Ohtani’s last outing to the mound of the year, as it has been agreed that the Japanese will not pitch in the Anaheim Angels final series.

As reported by the helmsman, the future AL MVP will not take the mound next Sunday to face the Seattle Mariners and will only be available to watch action as a hitter.

Maddon added in his report that the decision was made jointly between the organization and Ohtani himself, as it “ended with two great starts” and that “there is nothing to gain at this point” for the Anaheim team.

Shohei Ohtani would be ending his 2021 MLB season as a pitcher with a 3.18 ERA, as well as 156 strikeouts prescribed in 130.1 innings in 23 starts for the Anaheim Angels.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
