The Los Angeles Angels activated two-way sensation
« on: June 14, 2019, 05:41:29 am »

Ohtani and his injured right elbow are only cleared to hit for now Kendall Sheffield Jersey , but Los Angeles said he will be re-evaluated as a pitcher in three weeks.

Ohtani received stem cell therapy and a platelet-rich plasma injection to help heal the Grade 2 sprain of his ulnar collateral ligament suffered more than three weeks ago. Ohtani was cleared for a hitting program Friday and took part in two simulated games against minor league pitchers over the weekend.

”We’re going to see how many looks we can give him as a (designated hitter) and hopefully he’ll give us a lift there,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.

Ohtani went 0 for 4 in Los Angeles’ 4-1 loss to the Mariners.

Scioscia said there’s no plan in terms of Ohtani’s usage, and they’ll monitor it daily.

”He’s been cleared to swing and we will see how it all goes down,” Scioscia said. ”I check with my players all the time to make sure nothing is bothering them, but we don’t anticipate anything as far as him swinging the bat.”

Ohtani is hitting .280 with an .878 OPS and six homers in 118 at-bats in his rookie season. He batted sixth on Tuesday.

”I think it’s a good spot for him ,” Scioscia said. ”When you’re talking about Mike (Trout), Albert (Pujols), Justin (Upton) and (Andrelton) Simmons, hitting sixth behind those guys will hopefully be a good spot for him to hit, but also just trying to get him acclimated. We don’t want him to say Qadree Ollison Jersey , `I have to do so much,’ if he’s hitting higher in the lineup.”

Scioscia emphasized that Ohtani was not being rushed back into the lineup.

”He would not be playing here tonight if he wasn’t cleared by our medical department,” Scioscia said. ”We were very comfortable that he was able to swing the bat.”

Right-handed pitcher Miguel Almonte was also called up and right-handed pitchers Deck McGuire and Eduardo Paredes were optioned to Triple-A in corresponding moves.

As of this writing, the New England Patriots have two injured quarterbacks, and one who’s still serving a four-game suspension. And since Jacoby Brissett injured his thumb during the Pats’ Week 3 drubbing of the Houston Texans Brian Burns Jersey , it was a surprise for some that wide receiver Julian Edelman, who was listed as the No. 2 quarterback for that game, didn’t end up throwing any passes.It's happened before — non-quarterbacks can be listed as emergency QBs if the occasion calls for it. And former college quarterbacks like Edelman can be shifted to another position once they make it to the pros. If an NFL coach sees that a college standout is better suited elsewhere on the field, they try these players out at new positions, and see if they can stick.Do these players succeed after the position change? A lot of times , they don’t. But in the case of Edelman and the 14 other players in this list, they sometimes become much better than they might have been had they not changed positions in the NFL.NOTE – This list only includes players who played quarterback for most of their college career, therefore disqualifying players such as Hines Ward, who was only a full-time quarterback as a sophomore.
