Ohtani grants young Royals fan's wish by gifting one of his bats

Angels at Royals The Sked

We all thought Ohtani the Pitcher would be more valuable than Ohtani the Hitter, particularly in leagues like Yahoo's, which separated the Los Angeles Angels phenom into two separate draftable players.

Ohtani gave one of his bats to a 6-year-old boy, Leo Guastello, who boldly asked for it before the game when the two-way rookie star from Japan was signing autographs.

Ohtani described how the team was ensuring he make regular contact with medical staff, who conduct daily assessments to determine his strength and overall health before being cleared for game time. He walked five batters and struck out six and was going into way to many deep counts, so I don't fault the Angels for taking him out when they did. If not, that's what it is.

"The outfielders were playing in, so I knew once it got past them", Ohtani said.

Red Sox 6, Yankees 3: Rick Porcello pitched seven scoreless innings and no-hit the Yankees for the first six, striking out six and not walking a soul to raise his record to 3-0.

After another road victory on Thursday night, will the Los Angeles Angels continue their impressive play away from home when they meet up against the Kansas City Royals at 8:15PM ET?

Still, Ohtani meets with the media - first a generally small English-language session, translated by Mizuhara, then one with the larger Japanese contingent - after every game in which he appears. "Our guys are going to be ready".

At least the Royals won't have to deal with Ohtani the batter Sunday. He homered in three straight games earlier in the season and singled on Wednesday.

He was the first AL player to homer in three games in a row in the same season he started a game as a pitcher since Babe Ruth did it for the fifth time in 1930.

The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor struck out six and walked none in his third straight win to begin the year.

Ohtani however, is so talented at the plate that it is hard to justify keeping his bat on the bench. When the manager glanced back at one point, Ohtani flashed him a smile and a thumbs-up. I have nobody to compare to.

Although the Angels had scored the most runs in the majors over their first 14 games, it wasn't until the 15th game that they put their preferred lineup together. That's just what you deal with.
