Shohei Ohtani Won\'t Be Ready For Opening Day 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Feb 1, 2019 12:55 pm

Shohei Ohtani has been making progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, but he will not be ready by Opening Day.

Ohtani, who will only be available as a designated hitter in 2019, has been cleared to begin full strength training.

\"To pinpoint a timetable is unrealistic,\" Billy Eppler said, \"but what is clear is that his progression will not allow him to be active for Opening Day.\"
