    Ohtani is pretty dam incredible, but the Angels have a bad track record with arms, diagnosis and treatment.
    I hope they let him bat the rest of the year since he's out all next year for Tommy John anyways and maybe once he's healed a little better mid to end of next year he can bat before he's ready to pitch. Batting obviously doesn't affect his elbow, he's been smashing it.
    What do you think about ROTY chances if he continues to smash and ends with a 4-2, 3.31 ERA and 1.16 WHIP?
    ZERO other rookies in the league can claim that. There might be some pitchers in the NL that have to bat and aren't too bad, but they're nowhere near what Ohtani is doing.
    The two rookie on the Yankees are killing it, but neither can claim 4 wins pitching.

    I think what he's done was pretty amazing for a first year player, and it sucks about his eventual Tommy John if he wants to continue pitching.

    I also think I'd have to look at some other numbers, like WAR and stuff.

    Although I think Andujar is a shoe in for the AL ROY.

    And might as well give Acuna Jr to NL ROY now. He could strike out his next 60 at bats and still earn the award.

    I just compared side by side Andujar and Ohtani and Ohtanis numbers are better. He just doesn't have as many at bats. Better average, OBP, SLG, OPS, WAR (Ohtani 2.7 Andujar 1.8) more stolen bases (ohtani 9 Andujar 2) with half the at bats plus he has 4 wins and a 3.31 ERA. It really shouldn't even be that close.
    Check the numbers side by side and I think you'll change your mind
