    He's certainly tearing it up right now. On Buster Olney's podcast they said that they still don't expect him to hit for a very high average initially but as he matures he should improve--as long as they continue to let him hit. With him just being 23 he's still 3-4 years from his prime as a hitter.

    So far he has more strikeouts than Max Scherzer and more homers than Aaron Judge.

    He hit a bases loaded triple yesterday and made it to 3rd in 11.9 seconds. He's been timed as fast as Trout from home to first. Of course, he's a lefty so he's a step closer but he's still very fast.

    Of course he'll cool off some, but what the chances he makes the All Star game?

    The Red Sox got to him early tonight. Mookie Betts led off the game for a homer and they touched him up for 3 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks in 2 innings. Ohtani left after 2 with what the PA announcer said was a blister.
