Shohei Ohtani is throwing off the mound, "ramping up intensity and volume," per Angels' GM Billy Eppler. (Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register)

Fantasy Impact:

Ohtani was expected to start the season limited to DH duties as he continues to recover from Tommy John surgery. With the MLB season expected to start in July, the two-way star could be in the Angels' rotation by Opening Day. It was reported that Ohtani was throwing two bullpen sessions a week. Ohtani should be all systems go by the time the season starts, making the 25-year-old even more valuable in fantasy. The two-way player is currently ranked 119th overall, but that number could sky rocket if he is fully recovered from his elbow injury by Opening Day.
