Now, here's the surprising part: In case you're not already a member of the Shohei Ohtani fan club, you may not know that Ohtani is a pitcher … a pitcher who consistently throws between 98-101 mph, and who recorded a 1.86 ERA and 0.96 WHIP over 21 games with the Nippon Ham Fighters this season. He also batted .322/.416/.588, in case you were wondering.
