Pedro Gomez details the problems created as the Angels place starter Shohei Ohtani on the disabled list with a sprained elbow. (2:02)

As a starting pitcher and a designated hitter, Los Angeles Angels rookie Shohei Ohtani is embarking on a two-way journey that no major leaguer has successfully pulled off since Babe Ruth himself. Will Ohtani dominate on the mound and crush at the plate?

What did Ohtani do last?

On the mound -- Ohtani's start against the Royals on June 6 was cut short after four innings because of a blister on his pitching hand. It was the second time this season Ohtani left a game due to a blister on his right middle finger. Last time, he did not miss a turn. Ohtani gave up one run on four hits and three walks, striking out four.

At the plate -- Ohtani had a pinch-hit single in his lone at-bat against the Royals on June 4. His season line stands at .289/.372/.535.

When can I see Ohtani next?

Ohtani is on the disabled list with a grade 2 sprain of his UCL and has undergone PRP and stem-cell treatments. He will be re-evaluated at the end of June. For more on what Ohtani's injury could involve, and potential courses of action the Angels may have to take, you can read Stephania Bell's analysis of the possibilities and the risks.
