Ohtani is a hard-throwing pitcher who has substantial power at the plate, which is why the Angels used him as the team's designated hitter during Tuesday's game, even though he was not the starting pitcher. Statcast measured his last hit at 112.8 miles per hour, the hardest-hit ball by an Angels player this season. But after his performance last night, we may not have to wait as long as we originally thought to see his full abilities as a two-way player on a near nightly basis.

It was not a ideal start, but the 6-foot-4 Ohtani pitched six innings, allowing three earned runs on three hits with one walk and six strikeouts.

The hit was Ohtani's second in the majors - his first was in his first big league at-bat, at Oakland last Thursday.

With two outs and runners on second and third in his first at-bat, Ohtani took Tomlin deep to right-center at Angel Stadium, where the pitcher-slugger was making his debut.

"After getting my first hit out of the way, I felt more comfortable and relaxed", Ohtani said through and interpreter.

According to Bleacher Report, "Under the collective bargaining agreement, anyone under 25 years old was defined as an global amateur, restricting them to a minor league contract with a signing bonus from a team's worldwide bonus pool". His teammates gave him the cold shoulder at first.

Angels: RHP Matt Shoemaker was placed on the 10-day disabled list with soreness in his right forearm.

Ohtani went on to hit two singles to lead the Angels to a 13-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians.

Angels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (1-0) did not give up a run in 6 1/3 innings in a 2-1 win over the A's on Friday. Skaggs is 4-1 in 11 career starts in March and April.
