Angels' Shohei Ohtani (elbow) cleared to face live pitching

Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (elbow) has been cleared to face live pitching, the last stage before his return to the lineup.

What It Means:

Ohtani had Tommy John surgery in October and has progressed far enough in his recovery to face live pitchers, which he is expected to do this week. This leaves Ohtani on track to return to the Angels lineup in the first part of May.

Our models project Ohtani for a .274 average, 23 homers, and 67 RBI in 419 plate appearances this season.
