Shohei Ohtani connected for his league leading 44th home run on Friday. He went 1-for-1 with a home run and two walks in Friday's loss. On the flip side, he pitched 3.1 innings, allowed nine hits, six earned runs, and struck out one.

 The Athletics' bullpen was dealt a major blow on Thursday as reliever Trevor Rosenthal landed on the 60-day injured list. He's been dealing with a shoulder injury. Thoracic outlet surgery seems like the most likely outcome for the 30-year-old right-hander. Such a procedure would hold him out for at least three months.

Notes 
 After missing the 2018 season and most of the 2019 season, Rosenthal bounced back in a huge way last year. He stepped in as the Royals' closer, notching seven saves, and then was unhittable with the Padres after a mid-year trade. He parlayed his success into a one-year contract with the A's, where all signs point to him being the undisputed closer. Rosenthal was an outstanding reliever in his prime and once had back-to-back 45-save (or better) seasons. And his raw stuff looked excellent last year, as he totaled the best strikeout rate of his career. If he stays healthy, he has a shot at being a top-5 closer, but you can draft him a little later than that and likely make a profit.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Depending on your league settings, Ohtani has the potential to be a dominant force in 2021. There has never been any doubt about his talent, and he looks fantastic in the spring, hitting home runs at will and pumping in high-90s fastballs when on the mound. He's been batting on days he pitches, and Joe Maddon has suggested that he's going to throw out the old rules that led to Ohtani's decreased playing time. If you can move him between hitter and pitcher on a daily basis, then move him up your board significantly. Even if not, he should provide plenty of value when healthy as either a hitter or a pitcher, so make sure he's on your radar as you move into the double-digit rounds.
