Shohei Ohtani’s elbow injury has healed enough that the Los Angeles Angels‘ two-way star can begin a hitting program immediately.

General manager Billy Eppler said Thursday that Ohtani underwent an MRI in Los Angeles that showed improvement to his ulnar collateral ligament Ryan Kelly Jersey , clearing him to take batting practice in private.

”That’s news I was hoping to hear,” Eppler said on a conference call.

Ohtani was placed on the disabled list with a UCL sprain June 8. He will be re-evaluated by doctors in three weeks.

Asked whether Ohtani needs Tommy John surgery that could cause him to miss the rest of this season as well as all of the 2019 season, Eppler said Zay Jones Jersey , ”No doctor has told me that Shohei needs surgical intervention at this time.”

Ohtani has a Grade 2 sprain, or partial tear, of the UCL in his right elbow. In hopes of avoiding Tommy John surgery Jonathan Bullard Jersey , the Angels had Ohtani’s ligament injected with platelet-rich plasma and stem cells earlier this month. Eppler said he has not had additional injections.

Eppler said Ohtani will not play in rehab games but will take batting practice in a ”private and controlled environment” and could face live pitching as soon as this weekend. Because Ohtani is not a position player, rehab games were deemed unnecessary.

”We can control a little bit more the progression,” Eppler said. ”This allows for more freedom Kenny Moore Jersey , structure and control.”

Ohtani has not been cleared to pitch yet.

His last appearance came June 6 in a start against Kansas City. Ohtani left after four innings with a blister and also mentioned he was feeling tightness in his elbow. An MRI taken the next day revealed the UCL in his right elbow had progressed from a Grade 1 strain to a more serious Grade 2 level.

Ohtani won four of his first five decisions before getting injured. He was batting .289 with six home runs and 20 RBIs.

”I know that not being able to play baseball competitively and only being able to train doesn’t really satisfy his appetite and his hunger to play,” Eppler said. ”He’s now one step closer. I can only assume he’s excited about it.”



The Tennessee Titans are releasing outside linebacker Kevin Dodd, an unceremonious finish for a former second-round pick who never came close to living up this draft position.

The Titans announced Tuesday in a one-sentence release that they plan to cut ties with Dodd Jay Novacek Jersey , the 33rd overall pick in the 2016 draft.

This move comes two days after the Titans placed Dodd on the "did not report" list. Dodd also skipped voluntary offseason workouts before reporting to the team's mandatory minicamp in June.

Dodd only reported to the Titans' offseason program in June when staying away would have meant a fine.

Injuries limited Dodd for much of his stay with the Titans. He appeared in only nine games in each of his two seasons with Tennessee. He recorded a total of one sack.

The Titans had much bigger hopes for Dodd when they selected him out of Clemson early in the second round.

Dodd had 12 sacks his junior year at Clemson and recorded 23 陆 tackles for loss to rank second nationally. He capped his Clemson career by delivering five tackles for loss and three sacks against Alabama in the College Football Playoff championship game.

He never approached that production with the Titans and now becomes the first draft bust of general manager Jon Robinson's Tennessee tenure.
