Early reports are saying Angels rookie sensation Shohei Ohtani is going to need Tommy John surgery. Most people thought it was odd when he canceled his own start just weeks ago due to “work overload”. Now we know why. Per Keith Olbermann on Twitter, “Everything I’m hearing is that the reality is, he probably will need Tommy John surgery,” @pedrogomezESPN reports grim news for Shohei Ohtani and @Angels on @sportscenter. “The earliest we might see him, should he have TJ surgery, would be the 2020 season.” This is heartbreak for the Angels because not only do they lose a pitcher, they also lose a bat and position player. Loudmouth Sports will keep you updated on this whole situation.
