Will Ohtani, the ‘home run chaser’, gain momentum again with the return of ‘best friend’ Trout?

Trout, come on!’

Shohei Ohtani (29) of the Los Angeles Angels of the American Professional Baseball Major League gave up the home run lead. He was pushed by the fire bat of Matt Olsen of the Atlanta Braves. But there is a corner to believe. The return of ‘best friend’ Mike Trout is imminent, raising expectations.

Ohtani recorded 1 hit and 1 RBI in 3 at-bats in an away game against the Houston Astros on the 14th (hereinafter Korean time). He turned one hit into a home run. In the top of the sixth inning, with no runners on two runs, he pulled off a solo home run over the middle fence from opposing pitcher Parker Musinski.

He marked his 41st home run of the season. He fired 14 cannons in July, but the bat went cold in August. He has not added in eight games since hitting a home run against the Seattle Mariners on August 4. On this day, after 9 games, he felt the taste and faced a reversal.

While he hesitated, he lost the home run lead. He allowed an overtake by Olsen, who had 7 home runs in his last 12 games. Olsen exploded a multi-four in the game against the New York Mets on the 12th, and also produced a home run against the Mets on the 14th, marking the 43rd. He has a very hot bat in his hand.

He gave up the first place in home runs with his rival’s rise, but he does not lose hope. This is because Trout, who was diagnosed with a hip fracture after injuring his wrist against the San Diego Padres on July 4 and was on the operating table, started his comeback. When Trout returns, he can avoid a lot of checks from opposing pitchers. The news of the return of a strong support group raises expectations. 

It was difficult for Ohtani to maintain a sense of hitting due to the opponent’s intentional four-ball and avoidance of head-to-head matches. As Trout, who was leading the attack together, broke away from power, the burden increased. He had a hard time batting with severe restraint, and his troubles deepened as his stamina declined while pitching at the same time. In the end, changes came to his grades, such as losing the top spot in the major league home runs.토토사이트

In this atmosphere, Trout recovered his condition and announced the possibility of a return. Trout started batting training using a pitching machine on the 12th and is weighing the timing of his return. In mid- to late-August, coordination began with the goal of returning to the big leagues. When he regains his physical condition and returns, it is expected that he will be able to see the Angels batting order based on ‘2nd Ohtani – 3rd trout’.

By the 14th, Ohtani has been in the top ranks in the major leagues in several categories, including second place in home runs. 1st in OPS (1,073) and slugging percentage (0.665), 4th in on-base percentage (0.408), 5th in walks (75), 6th in RBIs (84), 6th in hits (133), 6th in runs scored (91) , ranked 8th in batting average (0.305).
