Shohei Ohtani’s Value

As Shohei Ohtani today gets permission to start a throwing regimen after six week of rest and stem cell and platelet-rich plasma treatment, fangraphs.com says that Ohtani has been worth $18.3 million so far in 2018, roughly split between his value as a pitcher ($8.8M) and his value as a hitter ($8.5M).  That’s after missing six weeks of pitching, though, so he obviously has more value as a pitcher, which is pretty much what everyone expected.

Still, it’s great to have his offense to fall back on while his arm has been ailing.  He can’t hit lefties, though (he’s 6-for-36 with two doubles and no home runs), so he DH’s almost exclusively against right-handed starters.
