Fantasy Impact:

It's the first start of the season for Ohtani -- who is also Friday's starting pitcher -- out of the leadoff spot this season as he's largely hit out of the three-hole with some starts at second as well. The phenom owns a .267 average with 15 homers, seven steals, and an .872 OPS at the plate while posting a 2.91 ERA with a 35% K% alongside a 5-1 record on the mound.
