Shohei Ohtani has become a fan favorite in Major League Baseball, irrespective of what team he plays for. At the moment, there is no better player than Ohtani in MLB. Be it from the mound or the plate, Ohtani has been spot on for the LA Angels for over two years.

After having a dominating season in 2021, the reigning American League MVP kicked off the 2022 season in style. However, unlike the last season, Ohtani failed to perform with his bat in the first few matches this season. But that did not last long, as the Japanese slugger answered his critics with the bat against the Texas Rangers.

First, he blasted two home runs in the Friday game against the Rangers, and now he has powered another home run on Saturday against the Rangers.

Shohei Ohtani is here to stay

Earlier in a few games, when Ohtani struggled to connect his bat with the ball, he faced a lot of slanders from everywhere. But little did they know that he was just getting ready for another big season. Before hitting two homers on Friday, there is another hilarious incident that took place.

As said, Ohtani was not having a great time at the plate, so he decided to perform CPR on his bat in the dugout. And guess what? Since then, he is looking very sharp at the plate and has already hit three home runs in two games. Though it sounds funny, the CPR magic seems to be working very fine for Ohtani.

In the last game against the Texas Rangers, Ohtani single-handedly won it for the Angles, while in the next game, his home run was vital for the LA Angels. As a result, the Angels are on a winning streak of two games.

Not only Ohtani but players like Mike Trout and Noah Syndergaard aka Thor have also been instrumental for the Angels this season. And if they continue to perform like this, then the Angels might end their season with their hand on the silverware.
