Dodgers' Shohei Ohtani: Hitting on field MondayFebruary 12, 2024 | 09:54 AM
Ohtani (elbow) will hit on the field Monday for the first time since he underwent an internal brace procedure, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. Ohtani said last week that he's been swinging the bat at around 100 percent effort and he'll now get to test things out against live pitching. The Dodgers plan to ease him into things a bit during spring training, but the full expectation is that Ohtani will be ready to serve as the designated hitter when the club opens up its season March 20 in South Korea.
