Get healthy quickly, Shohei. You're good for MLB.

And aside from Trout, your team needs all the help it can get.

@PT--The Angels already swept a series against one of the strongest teams, the Brewers. That was without Ohtani and I think Trout was benched by an injury too and missed at least one of those games.

Ohtani, like Judge and other young twenty-something successes, are not paid much compared to veteran superstars, so it's not like the team is wasting resources if the young guns are out for a month or two. One of the quirks of pro ball contracts is the highly inflated payouts covering the late stages of careers when you would logically conclude players will not be able to duplicate past performance. I guess the late years bigger contracts are like amakudari for athletes.
