Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani believes the new baseballs being used this season have been responsible for a dip in offensive production throughout the league.

"I do feel it personally, and just by watching the games, I feel like the balls aren't as juiced," Ohtani replied when asked if the balls were deader this season, according to The Athletic's Sam Blum.

"And just by looking at the numbers - exit velo, launch angle - there are some balls that should leave the yard that haven't."
