Los Angeles Angels pitcher/hitter Shohei Ohtani is likely undergoing Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire 2018 & 2019 seasons, according to ESPN’s Pedro Gomez.

“Everything I’m hearing is that the reality is, he probably will need Tommy John surgery. … The earliest we might see him, should he have TJ surgery, would be the 2020 season.”

Ohtani, 23, was diagnosed with a Grade 2 sprain of his UCL last week and he underwent platelet-rich plasma and stem cell injections to hopefully repair the damage,

Ohtani was to be re-evaluated in three weeks.

Ohtani was off to a solid rookie season, both on the mound and at the plate. He posted a record of 4-1 with a 3.10 ERA and 1.14 WHIP.

While serving as a designated hitter, Ohtani slashed .289/.372/.535 with six home runs and 20 RBI.
