The Angels plan to start Shohei Ohtani — as a pitcher — on Saturday against the Milwaukee Brewers at Diablo Stadium.

That schedule will change only if something derails his workout Thursday, when he's set to throw a bullpen session.

Manager Mike Scioscia confirmed that Ohtani will not hit on the day after he pitches, meaning Ohtani's Cactus League debut as a hitter likely will come Monday.
