OHTANI AUTO ROOKIE!!! Shohei Ohtani made the 25-man roster and started as the designated hitter on Opening Day against the Oakland Athletics and got a single his first time at the plate. On April 1st he made his pitching debut, striking out six batters in six innings while allowing three runs, to pick up his first MLB win. On April 3, Ohtani hit his first MLB home run, a 397-foot three-run homer against Josh Tomlin. The following day, he hit his second, becoming the first Angels player to homer in his first two career home games. He tied the franchise record of 12 total bases, and five RBI through his first three consecutive career games. On April 6, he hit his third home run in three days, becoming the first Angels rookie to do so.
In only his second start on the mound on April 8, Ohtani took a perfect game through 61/3 innings before allowing a hit. Overall, Ohtani pitched seven scoreless innings while striking out 12.
