However, 한국야동 the starting lineup suddenly changed just before the start of the game. Ohtani was removed and Mike Mustachus was inserted in his place.
According to local media, Ohtani was taking batting practice at an indoor batting cage before the game and re-injured the area, which led to his removal from the starting lineup.
A day earlier, Angels manager Phil Nevin had said that Ohtani “should be able to play tomorrow,” 성인웹툰 but the injury flared up and he was forced to watch from the bench again.
