"You may never want to use him in that role, but you could", Becquey said.
Some fantasy baseball leagues are allowing players to draft Ohtani twice, once as a pitcher and once as a hitter, which could lead to Ohtani being on two different teams at the same time.
There were dozens of Japanese reporters in attendance as Shohei Ohtani reported to the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday.
But the bulk of Ohtani's value will come as a pitcher.
His non-roster status: It's rarely ever mentioned, but for the same reasons that Ohtani was subject to the global amateur free agent market rules - he couldn't have become a true free agent for two more seasons - he's also not required to occupy a 40-man roster spot at the onset of spring training. This is a minor hurdle, especially in comparison to the above points, but it's also a reminder that the Angels are under no pressure to place him on said roster to begin the 2018 regular season in the event they don't deem him ready. This tactic would give Ohtani the rest he's used to while also giving him ample opportunity to get some at-bats as a DH in the time between starts.
One of the reasons for this either/or decision is for consistency in the treatment of all pitchers: Fantasy baseball traditionally does not credit a pitcher's hitting statistics in a game where he is slotted in as an active pitcher, because of how generally poor pitchers are with the bat.
While not getting overly specific about the team's plans, Scioscia said Ohtani will be available to hit in between starts - and even on days he's starting on the mound in National League parks.
Ohtani's either/or decision also keeps the matter of precedent in mind, as his treatment could also apply to future such examples of two-way players.
Just moments after Scioscia was asked a question about Ohtani's physical, the player entered the field from a gate in the right-field corner, not far from where Scioscia stood.
As for the Player Rater, Ohtani will become the first player to receive credit for his contributions both as hitter and pitcher.
The microscope promises to remain focused on Shohei Ohtani throughout his first season in the major leagues. His batting average would be the only potential negative category, if he hits so poorly that he's a detriment to your team.
Ohtani, having signed on a minor league contract, needed an invitation to attend the Angels' major league spring camp.
