Shohei Ohtani to miss next start with ankle sprain


The disappointment of Ohtani's name not being in the lineup for the star-studded matchup was surely felt all the way to Japan.

"It was a little weird for me, but there's a lot of fans here so it's still nice", Gregorius said of the rare road curtain call, which came after the homer that pushed the Yankees to their seventh straight victory, their eighth in their last nine games.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said while the 23-year-old rookie was not well enough to bat, he will not be put on the disabled list.

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia announced that Shohei Ohtani, who is now nursing an ankle injury he suffered running to first base as a hitter Friday, won't pitch until the weekend when the club travels to Seattle.

"We're targeting Shohei to pitching somewhere on the weekend in Seattle just to make sure this is behind him and he gets the proper workout to test it more instead of rushing him and trying to see where he is on Wednesday", Scioscia said. "I mean, look around". While the injury doesn't appear to compromise Ohtani's playing time with the team on a long-term basis, he's considered day-to-day until further notice.
