Ohtani is now resorting to some interesting tactics in order to wake up his bat. During Monday's game against the Miami Marlins, the Angels slugger jokingly gave his baseball bat CPR.
Ohtani was clearly trying to bring some humor to his struggles as he let out a chuckle when cameras caught him administering the life-saving tactic.

Ohtani hasn't had the same struggles on the mound. In the Angels' Opening Day 3-1 loss to the Houston Astros, Ohtani surrendered just one run on four hits and registered nine strikeouts in 4.2 innings of work.
