ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA - SEPTEMBER 03: Shohei Ohtani #17 of the Los Angeles Angels pitches during the first inning against the Texas Rangers at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on September 03, 2021 in Anaheim, California.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Two-way star Shohei Ohtani had a solid spring training debut on the mound, striking out five batters over 2 1/3 innings for the Los Angeles Angels.

The 2021 American League MVP was sharp in the first, getting a called strike on his first pitch to Kansas City’s Kyle Isbel and then earning the strikeout by blowing a high fastball past the left fielder three pitches later.

The right-hander retired seven of the 11 hitters he faced. Ohtani threw 50 pitches, which was close to his expected goal of 45.
