Shohei Ohtani to be a two-way player when play resumes

Shohei Ohtani will be pitching and hitting as soon as camp begins and, barring any setbacks, should be a two-way player from the outset of the 2020 season.

Ohtani’s original timetable of recovery from September 2018 Tommy John surgery was going to have him starting the season as a DH only, but the multiple months delay to play means that he can be a two-way threat for the entire season, such as it is.

As a hitter, Ohtani posted a line of .286/.343/.505 with 18 home runs, 62 RBI, 51 runs scored, and 12 stolen bases across 425 trips to the plate.
