Shohei Ohtani made his highly anticipated spring training debut for the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday, and his reception was mixed. Ohtani went 1.1 innings, allowed two hits, two runs, a walk and struck out two. He allowed a home run to Milwaukee’s Keon Broxton. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Tom Haudricourt says Brewers hitters described Ohtani’s fastball as firm but flat after facing him. That sounds like Ohtani had some good velocity, but not a ton of movement on his fastball. Both the home run and double he allowed came on fastballs.
