On Friday, Angels GM Perry Minasian revealed that the team had not done any related imaging for Ohtani’s arm until this past week. Ohtani had been suffering from arm fatigue and skipped his previous start on the mound before Wednesday. Minasian asserted that Ohtani had yet to complain about anything worthy of concern up until the scan.
“No (no imaging then),” said Minasian when asked about imaging prior to this week. “No, there was no arm issue – just fatigue, tired, cramping, dehydration.”
