Ken Giles
News 
 Shohei Ohtani (elbow) has been throwing live batting practice sessions.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
Sun, May 31st
Ken Giles pitched a scoreless inning and struck out one batter on Wednesday in the Blue Jays' Grapefruit League win over the Orioles.
John Aubin
Thu, Mar 12th
 Shohei Ohtani is throwing off the mound, "ramping up intensity and volume," per Angels' GM Billy Eppler.
Brad Camara
Thu, May 14th
 
 Shohei Ohtani has been throwing roughly two bullpens per week, in addition to long toss of 200+ feet. Angels GM Billy Eppler says he has been throwing around 80-85 percent, and if this were a normal season, he would be facing live batters shortly.
Carmen Maiorano - Carm's Clubhouse
Sun, Apr 26th
 
 Angels pitching coach Mickey Callaway said Tuesday that Shohei Ohtani (elbow) is throwing long toss out to 180 feet.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
Tue, Apr 7th
 
 Shohei Ohtani went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Mariners.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma

Notes 
 Ohtani didn't pitch at all in 2019 and likely won't do so until mid-May in 2020. But his bat looked just fine last year, proving that his 2018 skills he showed as a hitter were not a fluke. He'll likely settle back into a part-time DH role with the Angels, and if you can choose to deploy him as both a pitcher and a hitter in any given week, Ohtani should provide immense value as a fantasy player. Even if not, he should contribute on either end of the spectrum, so draft him with a high degree of confidence.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Giles may have had the quietest 1.87 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in the history of baseball. Add to that a a 14.09/9 strikeout rate and Giles was one of the best relievers in baseball in 2019. He'll be a free agent after this year so it seems unlikely he holds down the closer's role in Toronto all year. But he'll certainly help your overall numbers in the first half of the season at least.
