The Angels are off to a blazing hot start, tied for the most wins in baseball with a 10-3 record. Mike Trout is off to a pretty good start, but the big success story has been Japanese rookie Shohei Ohtani. The two-way sensation has already smacked three home runs and is hitting .364/.417/.773, and he has already won two games on the mound, carrying a perfect game into the seventh inning his last time out.
He’ll pitch on Sunday, but you can watch him hit tonight.
Ian Kinsler has been activated off the DL. Ryan Schimpf was optioned. Shohei Ohtani is back in the lineup for Nick Tropeano's season debut vs. KC: pic.twitter.com/79FBLsd8Xm— Maria I. Guardado (@mi_guardado) April 12, 2018
Abraham Almonte makes his first start for the Royals, with Jorge Soler in right field so Whit Merrifield can DH. Okay.
