Angels Reveal Why Shohei Ohtani Had to Leave Today's Game

Angels Superstar Shohei Ohtani From LA's Lineup

There was a curious scratch after just one at-bat versus the Tigers.

However, Angels PR swooped in to let fans know

That the current AL MVP is battling a stomach virus.

Ohtani went 0-for-1 in his lone plate appearance,

But his follow-up campaign didn't disappoint.

The Japanese-born slugger is batting .263 with 27 home runs and 72 RBI,

While there are also 2.69 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 165 strikeouts from the mound.

Earlier this week, Ohtani was just a double shy of hitting for Cycles.

Because he rode a five-game hit streak to increase his average by more than 10 points.

Hopefully, the disease isn't anything serious and he's going against Rez.

Ready to go for the upcoming Road of Angels series.
