Sho Time: Angels' Shohei Ohtani Returns to Form
"We're talking about the angels and not Mike Trout Ouden. Gonzales covers baseball for ESPN. He was recently angels. Camp attract the recovery of two way superstar. Shohei Ohtani. Who's a big star might trout or Shohei Ohtani. I think Shohei is a bigger star. You should see just the media presence that follows him everywhere. They're like twenty Japanese reporters in spring training. Who are just like following him around everywhere. Unlike Mike. Trout doesn't have that people are interested like they're fascinated by this guy so you save time. He's back but he played last season. What do you mean when you say Otani is back? Shohei Otani is back to being the fullest version of himself. Couple years ago came early from Japan in his early twenties and he showed that a player can thrive the highest levels of the sport by being a very competent hitter. Sil- a lights out pitcher GONNA MISS DOT goes down nasty splitter straight down swing that last year spent the two thousand nine hundred nine season rehabbing from Tommy John Surgery while hitting in the lineup. Now starting around May of this season. We're going to see that two way sensation again. I don't think baseball has been excited about a player. A longtime. Why is there so much excitement around Shohei right now because we literally haven't seen this in a hundred years because it's new because maybe it gives us hope that we're gonNA continue to see this? From other athletes in the future. He was just scratching the surface of just how good he can be. And now we get a chance to see it for an entire year. That's incredibly exciting. Well we will get eventually just not at the start of the season right. Yeah so the angels are going to be very conservative with Shohei Ohtani. He had the Tommy John Surgery in October of two thousand eighteen. He had knee surgery in September of Twenty nineteen throughout April. He's GonNa serve as a designated hitter and because of the new rule that allows for two way players. He can go rehab on a minor league assignment as a pitcher in the meantime so he's going to be able to hit in their lineup. As a designated hitter you're probably bat cleanup or bat third behind Mike Trout. I'm going to say maybe four to five times a week and then at some point around the middle of May he's GonNa be a starting pitcher for them to the grand experiment will be back on basically. Yes this experiment. The wrong word. No I think experiment is still the right word because in so many ways the angels are sort of setting the blueprint for how something like this done. They have nothing else to go on except for maybe what he did in Japan which is completely different league. They don't travel across time zones in Japan. They don't play as many games. In Japan. Angels are doing this by themselves. He's going to start once a week. Not once every five games he is not going to hit either the day before he starts or the day after his starts and he's definitely not going to be in the line up on the day of his start so you're looking at twenty starts in the season maybe one hundred games in the lineup. Still a good amount but definitely going the conservative route there. Let's back up to win. Shohei I came to baseball two years ago. What were the expectations like for him? And why was he so special? Will those a lot of wonder about a guy attempting to do this? There was a lot of doubt definitely but a lot of the people scouted him in Japan. Came Away raving about this guy. His batting practices are the stuff of legend. He's incredibly fast. He might be just as fast as Mike Trout. And that's one thing that people don't talk about on the pitching side. The Guy Those one hundred miles an hour he throws a split finger. That's like one of the nastiest pitches that you'll ever see so you have a guy coming over here with that kind of talent and the fascinating thing about Shohei is. He shows up to spring training in two thousand eighteen. And he's awful. He can't get anybody out. Pitching seven runs in the inning. So not the day that. Otani was hoping for today here facing the rocky. Looks like a mess in the batter's box completely off balance chasing pitches. Here's the next delivery and that is a big swing and miss thereby and within like four to five weeks of him attempting to do this. You have scouts saying that he's not going to be able to hit in the major leagues. You have people saying that. He needs to start the season in the minors. You have people saying that the angels should completely scrap their plans of having him be a two way player and just let him try to develop as a pitcher. Because it's too hard to do it at this level and then all of a sudden the season starts and it's like a light switch goes off. Here's the next pitch and he lets well hidden and the right center.
"shohei otani" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"That nationally. The angels Shohei Otani is more must see TV than Mike trout. All right. You may not want to hear that baseball may not want to hear that. But he is there's more of a curiosity was Shohei Ohtani. Then there is Mike trout. I know what I'm getting with Mike trout in an different generation. He would be must see TV, but baseball is different on a national platform. You know, he's never gonna put up numbers where individually and individual season where you go and he's approaching seventy homers. He's just not going to have bad numbers. He's not going to have those dips, Bryce Harper giveth and take the way I don't wanna pay that kind of money for that amount of time for a guy who's inconsistent. He may put together two or three great years. Trout does that every single year and he's on pace. I saw these numbers. Now, keep this in mind. There's an asterisk that goes along with this. Which all explain Mike trout is a head of the all time leaders pays at this point in their careers in home runs hits runs scored and walks. So. Home runs bonds had one hundred and forty two at this age and keep in mind berry didn't get pumped up until later in his career. He wasn't a home run hitter. He was an unbelievable five tool player with Pittsburgh. Then all of a sudden, he decided L O. Everybody wants to home runs. Oh, okay. I'll show you home runs. That's when he had this incredible second half surge of his career hits wise. Pete Rose pizza couple of hundred behind Mike trout at this stage of their careers runs scored. This is interesting with trout and Ricky Henderson in. You know, you got trout ahead of him by about sixty runs at the same age. And then walks once again bonds is the all time leader. But at this point in his career bonds wasn't being intentionally walked like he was later in his career. So bonds is the outlier with this with home runs and walks because bonds was a completely different player. The second half of his season. He saw where the money was. And he ball. Act up in a variety of ways and became the all time home run leader and in career walks, but Mike trout, those impressive numbers and you can pencil in the top five MVP candidate. It feels like but the angels who a good for him system. Not a great farm system have to surround him with telling is oh Tani going to be there for the long haul. You get Albert pool halls is contract off the books and a couple of years, but what are you bringing in who were you bringing in who wants to play with Mike trout? How important is it for everybody involved? Now know the angels wanna win again. But I don't look at Mike trout and say he didn't wanna be a winner or doesn't want to be a winner or that's not important. I'm assuming he went to management ownership and said, okay, I'm gonna take care of my portion of this. What are you doing on your end because this doesn't end with trout making four hundred twenty million dollars? It's we're paying you this. He might turn out to be a bargain and. Bryce Harper might turn out to be a bargain. But we want to know what are you putting around me? I see what's what Philadelphia has already. And what are they going to continue to do? Because I still think when the angel side Albert poodles the cardinals got his ten best years and got a bargain for our pools. The angels had to overpay to bring him in. They thought there would be some back end award ceremonies where he would be breaking records. But if you weren't going to win a World Series in the first five years than I thought that this was a bad contract. Well, it's a bad contract. And you got him for a couple more years there. But no, Mike trout, and now who's next Mookie Betts, Aaron judge Lynn door? There's going to be a couple of guys, you know, the price of poker just went up considerably here. Dan,.

"But he finished fourth in rookie of the year voting behind three I guess more touted players in Shohei Otani in two Yankees. The raise really thing. Like, he's one of them were underrated players in the game. Now, I know he also played basically every position last year. But is he going to be locked into second base more regularly? Yeah. With Joey I mean, how do you? How do you build off that year? I think I was actually just looking at the numbers early today. And in terms of overall hitting overall, daddy, I think have three or four among those guys. You know, the power isn't quite there. I mean, although with only had seven home run, but with him it's just continuing the little five the fence and again young he had that refer year. It's really just finding his place in the infield. And that's just with that. Once they find that guy around him have I and with you on yet third. It's just playing with the same guys spring there. You know, you're experimenting with so many different different people. Some guys aren't going to be on the team. So with Joey getting comfortable with surroundings and continuing to build up those numbers last year, and one more thing I wanted to ask you the rays have a new position on their major league staff this year, the analytics coach there are indeed director from last year Johnson Ehrlichman has moved down to the dugout. I don't know whether hills literally be in the dugout, but he'll be in uniform during games. I don't know if you've had a chance to talk to him. But have you heard anything about him or from him, and what sort of role heat might occupy? Because this is kind of a new thing. Actually haven't had a chance to speak with him. It's a really busy day. But, but that's definitely on the list of things to do up here in the next coming days. But really when you see that in the hiring that you think back to the raise, and and what they're trying to do is Cho's goes back to their front office who the youngest guy in baseball, and what they're trying to do with with their analytic department, and and just being a front in in front of thing compared to the rest of the league is not surprising that type of move. All right. So we end all of these preview segments by asking the guest for a win. Total prediction, which I feel bad about now. 'cause you're just getting to know the steam and you've made time to talk to us. And here we are putting you on a spot in ask you how many wins they're gonna have this year. But we've done it for everyone else. So I guess we have to stick with it. What is your initial impression? Obviously it's going to be tough to make the playoffs. No matter. How many games they win this year? But where are you expecting this team to end up record wise? You know, I'm gonna keep it at ninety the really hard with with them being that hill Easson considering how young guys are not from this past season covering NFL and the main story all season with Aaron Rodgers might McCarthy and their its cord, but it was really Rogers than his wide receivers. He had three rookie young guide. And I think, you know, totally different, you know, apples and oranges. But still the same concept with young guy. I mean, they just don't have that life experience. Don't have as many years in the league compared to all these other teams, especially when you're competing, and I know the the Yankees and Red Sox have their young who. But I mean new those stories franchises with with tons of experiences up and down. So I think nineties a good tracker for them. Ninety isn't good enough? They're they're aiming the me. Make the playoff to while chart or whatever may be. But I think nineties a pretty good number two the the leave the bay. All right. We appreciate you. Joining us. We wish you luck with getting to know everyone and getting to feel at home on the raise beat. I think you're will on your way, and you can all follow Joshua's coverage of the raise all season long at the ethic. You can find him on Twitter at J C, T sports. Josh, thank you very much. He had a really predated gonna be an interesting season for an interesting payment..

"Listen if winces playing and he's healthy just a Super Bowl bad way. Way a being being devil gap. Falcons. Man falcons. Have a lot falcons have lots picked up Bradley two. They. Good old line. Matt Ryan year to it's going to be really good this year. Muhammad Muhammad so new did he mention Julio Jones to running by guy too? Oh, man. I got a lot happening over there. So we'll get to that the third hour extensively inbounds out of bounds. Coming up this hour. You know, this is this is sad. Let's spend a little time on Shohei Otani here this this is not necessarily good as he suffered. What was described as new damage to his own their collateral ligament? This isn't his right elbow, obviously. He's righty pitcher and let a hitter. But obviously from from the mount perspective. This is a big problem here and see the report now is that he's going to be able to probably play full-time D H in twenty thousand nine. So even if he doesn't have any procedure he will go to go to spring training, and he'll be able to get five hundred six hundred at bats without interruption and not gonna play the outfield pitch. But he's going to give you some some thump and thump he is giving you in little less than two hundred and fifty at bats. This year has got eighteen bombs. You pro rate that over the course of nearly a full season. That's thirty six home runs and five hundred. Nearly a one thousand. Okay, let me let me they got decisions. Agreed. Let me back up a second Btk. Is you had UCLA surgery picture pitcher like he was, but you had the surgery, and I'm sure you did your the requisite research when you found out a get Tommy John surgery. They say new damage to his us. What does that? What does that mean is that did that happen because he continued to swing a bath? Because he pitched or or that was going to be the second part because they foolishly let him go out on the mound for two and a third innings. Yeah. I didn't get that. I think it would have to be the ladder. I mean, just from my perspective, my was a complete tear. So I had no choice. I did play with a guy who the the miners who had a partial and kind of like Tanaka was able to navigate it a push surgery down the road. Yeah. He wasn't good enough to make the majors anyway. But there are ways to. To circumvent the operating table. But not if you're pitcher they've got a really tough decision here. Because Billy apple and read about this this morning Halley spoke about when they first went to Japan really pitch to my everybody who's going to be a Yankee. Yeah. So the angels really pushed him hard on the two way option. How would back him up on that? It was a real commitment. They wouldn't waiver from it. And they feel that obligation, and you can respect this. Although I don't think it's the right thing baseball. I do think it's the right thing from maybe not morally, but from a bond a word your word is your word means something they try to try to do the right thing yet because he gets to choose because he gets to choose. Amid if it's my team. I don't think I've ever let him pitch again. I think I would just forget about pitching. I think he could be so good as a hitter. Like if he was a key if he fully focused on if he put all his attention because let's don't forget this BT. And I think most of our listeners what is well to become elite pitcher in the national in in in major league baseball. It's a year long commitment. There's no doubt. I write the stuff, of course. But didn't you get a focus on it? And you got a practicing you. Gotta learn new things and new techniques and study in Henley study arm slot. All that stuff, you know, versus bigger right handed batters versus smaller right handed batters and vice on the other side of the plate as well. And you know. Tendencies of umpires there's nuance that he just can't do if he's also worried about being a position player or or just at the age is is I think they're saying he'll have to be next season. Yeah. I mean, if you want to let that before surgery, I don't know what he's gonna do. A pitcher say pitcher pitches on Monday night, and to your point teak. I mean, what what that pitcher is going to do with that player's gonna do the next few days before he takes the mound. Again, there's going to be a lot of running. You know, they call polls foul pole to foul pole. And there's going to be the long toss. And there's going to be tape work, and there's gonna be bullpen sessions flat ground, and it's it's an arduous process. It's not that dissimilar from before Tiger Woods hit. The I t today we went through bunch of wedges a bunch of six irons a bunch of shape shots left to right right to left driver. Three would here. It's a process, and if Tiger Woods or warrior, whomever, said, you know, what? Yeah. I play golf, but I'm not gonna touch my wedge for the two weeks before the masters. Yeah. Chances are that wedge going to be a little sloppy loose. So if you're they angels, what's what you've buys them. Get the surgery you d a play for two years down the line, or do you say, you know, what do you do because there's three options here, you get the surgery, and let them still be a pitcher and a hitter because that's what you promised him when he when he chose you. Let's not forget that he chooses what team to go to when he came over from Japan. And so in his mind he wanted to do what his childhood dream off. It was really a child whatever I'll say it was his childhood dream ambition. Once you realize accurate enough to be a professional pitcher and hitter and do them both very well. If you're the angels, the advise them not to or do you say, you know, what let's let's do what you're suggesting BT D H. We'll see how it how it feels next year and just be a hitter bat for us, even if it means sacrificing something you've thought about and dreamed about doing your entire youth, and even the early part of your professional career because he did it successfully over in Japan, even though he did have some injuries over there as well. I don't know what I would do right away. I I don't know the because the additional complication here is that you have to figure if if the if the angels push him toward the wrong thing. And it's like he's got a nine year contract. No, you know, he can reevaluate likes reevaluate where he plays baseball. So you've got to be aware of that which they are. And you've got to protect that that relationship and continue to foster it. So she's done after the season. Who knows if that has any you know, any sway. What I like if it's my team. He's an asset in the batter's box and all the basis. I mean, he could be. Yeah. You what do we talk to you? Socia- associate 'social about can you run? Yeah. And he said he was the best athletes team. But he ran like a wide receiver. Yup. And I said come on. So she plays them. It sounds a little bit. And then we saw him hit a triple early in the season. Right. And he looked like cooling down to thirty five your bomb over the middle. Yeah. Because he's a big kid. He feels like he's more than he actually he's big until. Exactly. So he's here's the other side of this other question, baby. This this has merit. If you're the angels, the S trout. Trout did know it all know, you don't ask trout because that would that further cement trout's, if you're the angels, and you're making this decision like you you have a decision, right? And you really don't. And if you're the if you the angels, you can't screw this up. Right. You can't do something in a five months later. Mike like, well, why don't you guys do that? Right. You just put them in a position to not want to be here. It's got to be independent on my drought. It's gotta be you know, I'm not saying that you don't at times. Placate your best players play the game. You know, there's different rules for star players that is what it is. It's never going to change. But this is completely independent because they really they have no juice here. Shohei Otani says I'm having surgery he's not having surgery if he says, I'm having surgery and a week without James Andrews in Birmingham, Alabama or over here at HSS doctoral. Check why had in New York. You know what? Thank medically can't stop him. So all they could do is guide him gently, and if it's my team teak to answer your question. I would guide him to being a fulltime hitter. Because I think at the minimum, he's a twenty stolen. I was gonna say twenty twenty. I don't know if he's quite quite as the burst to steal thirty bases. Has seven and he barely plays. Yeah. And you know, he's gonna hit thirty five or forty home runs when he learned the league, but he's never focused on being. Maybe he could be right. I mean, I don't know how many times you've been thrown. You know, what he's he's he's he's taken off eight times, and he's made it seven times. So his instincts are pretty good. Again. There's a there's been a de emphasizing a base running based on the devaluation of it, and you can run into an out vaunted. All that stuff that that we've talked about over the years, but Shohei Otani is somebody who if you told me he was fully healthy and at the age of twenty four as he got more at bats. And he learned the league and he learned tendencies and strike zones. And I'm Pires and all that. It would not surprise me. If he had a season where he had something like forty five fifty home run. Yeah. You know, the problem with what you're with what you're suggesting. And ultimately, I think you're right. I think he needs to focus on being a hitter. 'cause he's physically built like a major league star position player. If you last hitter he's built like he just looks the part rises like it's like when you see Mike trout MyTravel travel a football player. But still you see Mike trout, you're like, dude. A study. That's how Shohei Ohtani looks. But on the other side of it in my mind. I'm like God. I really wanted this story. I really wanted to follow this story of the improbable. Right. The the Babe Ruth a modern Babe Ruth who kid hit for power and do it consistently. But also be a very valuable rotation pea soup. Ah? Maybe it's not maybe it is selfish. I wanted to see it just for the story of it. And while I know what you're saying is, right. What you're saying is right. And just feel like it's it's letting go of of something that may not come around ever again. Oh, take. I mean, I'm with you. I mean, it was like this mythical. I hear that everything you hear about Babe Ruth. He did why. Wait. He he what. Really do that. Is there any documentation? What did he do? He did it. Now, there is no African Americans Spanish players. There was no sliders. There was you know, there is no splitters fastball. Curveball. There was no lefty specialist coming out of the bowl. Not to in any way, denigrate the great, Babe Ruth. I mean, he's on the mount Rushmore. It's, you know, whether it's bathe Willie Mays or tie Cobb or Barry Bonds, or whomever, Tony Gwynn is a pure hitter. I mean, there's a lot of people would vie for those four spots there. But Babe Ruth is certainly one of them Otani was was cartoonish. You the sense that it was. I mean, imagine watching it was a little bit like Dion Sanders taking a helicopter and going to play quarterback. That's right parachuting into the World Series, right or vo- Jackson thing. Run up the walls. Dude. You can't ashville do that. We're smashing a battle. He struck out. It's just it was so improbable, and the fact that you know, he's Japanese and he doesn't speak our language yet. There was additional intrigue because it was just actions. And there was no nothing. Verbal behind it. All you would see as a guy throw ninety nine a guy hitting opposite feel bombs and Dan was intoxicating. So I'm with you. I'm trying to find a mon- fan graphs. Now. I come trying to find the percentage, I'll do it some other time. Like how often he leans on his secondary pitches? The torque because that's part of it as well. I know how relying he is on. I don't know if he throws his fastball. Sixty two percent of the time or the other. Yeah. And that's important because I don't know that that would change medically what I do. But it might be a small part of the evaluation. Speed of evaluation. Let's get Billy epilepsy. Who was the GM for the angels, real quick on this and one at least get this. And Billy says what's next for Otani here? He is. Clear to hit right now. And continue to remain are h. You sit down on on Monday and have a. Probably a deeper conversation at that time. But for now, he's he's clear to hit. And you know, and the other thing you have to incorporate in the year two thousand eighteen this is like nineteen Eighty-four. This would not be a part of the equation. But it is and I just looked up and I saw picture report zingers from getting carried off the court, basically what he fell on the Greek freak some ankle any Ben's knee exploded at the garden when he dunked on them. And you know, he's a young kid who's got to protect his future brands in his investment. And would you incorporate the Japanese marketplace and the ability for him to monetize himself globally up any decision. That'll Taty makes while fans might not want to hear this. It will be driven. I'm not saying solely by money. But it will be a strong part of the impetus in his has. It is what it is. It has to be. Yup. At branding is part of being an athlete in two thousand eighteen no doubt about it. But love bell. You're right. I mean, come on fifteen billion not good enough. He's he's looking for more, by the way, by the way. Tiger woods. What did you wanna eighteen? He's eight under eighteen thirty to eighteen. Okay. Sixty two. Sixty dose for Tiger Woods number one in the clubhouse right now. Tie. All we got to keep an eye on McElroy who was minus seven through twelve. Yeah. Can you imagine?

And you also don't have much of rentals that you can trade in kind of retool for next year. And you have Mike trout the best player on the planet. The best player I've ever seen and I saw Griffin bonds in their day, and you can't waste him. And you probably not trading him. Right. So what the hell do you do? If you're Billy upland Ardy Marino down there in Anaheim. I don't see my child out of Anaheim. Right. I don't see it, especially if you've got Shohei Otani, you know, as including hit, right? I I don't see the if you if you how you let player like my trout ever leave your franchise. I don't I don't see it. You know, if you're gonna do something with it. You know, the time is not now. Now, you position what you gotta keep him ever. You can't build around him. And if I'm already raining on Billy up ler and the staff of these broad again don't good job of drafting right to rebuild. What wasn't there when they got nothing against Jerry? I know it's where he came from. But but wasn't there when he got there? They job rebuilding that. And they have some starring contracts. J Wilson was an albatross. He's on the cut. He's not there anymore. Google's almost done with his deal. Right. That's not. So there's some things are going to come off the books, you're not some flexibility in you, go out and you pay now, listen, they would the angels usuals. Although I don't know what to give up. I would I'm targeting. Is in New York. I'm we'll going after Conforto. And I'm looking at Syndergaard, maybe Wheeler. I'm looking at getting one of those three probably not considered. I'm more like Syndergaard. I had to give up everything in the house to do it. And I don't know if that's still feasible. But if they're if I'm plugging player there, I'm looking for arms. I'm looking for because I've got some position players. I think are still going to be okay. I gotta fig figure out what I'm gonna do with Shohei Otani. She's going to dictate what how I am. Whether it's vision player wise, whether it's it's teaching was have to happen figure that out I, but you can't let might try out of their Otani because your second play don't wanna talk about Tony in a second. But going back to pools, really quick. He's got three years after two thousand eighteen owed eighty seven million more dollars making another thirteen and a half this season. They still owe him a ton of money. I'm assuming pools gets to a point very soon maybe at the end of this year, or he's just like, it's just not working my my feet don't work anymore. I can't hit anymore. I'm a hitter. It's hard to play. I just like he's embarrassing himself at this point he'll casually run into ones who's gonna end the season with twenty plus home runs, but the guy just can't play anymore.
