Fantasy Impact:

Eppler also mentioned his most recent check up on his surgically repaired elbow went well. Ohtani has been cleared for "full strengthening rehab" but has yet to swing a bat. His next step is dry swings. Ohtani obviously won't pitch in 2019 but the plan is for him to DH regularly once he's able to.
