Angels manager Mike Scioscia knows about the minor sprain in newly acquired pitcher/hitter Shohei Ohtani’s elbow, but he is not concerned. “No restrictions with Shohei,” Scioscia told reporters Wednesday at baseball’s winter meetings. “The only understanding we have is really just something that’s behind him. There’s no concern, and there’s no restrictions. He’ll be full go in spring training.” According to a physical obtained by Yahoo Sports, Ohtani received a platelet rich plasma injection in his pitching elbow in October to help heal a small tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in the same elbow. The Angels knew of the injury risk and are clearly not worried, probably because this type of injury has historically been manageable. One of the best examples would be with a fellow player out of Japan in Masahiro Tanaka.
