Shohei Ohtani

Shohei Ohtani is adjusting well to life in Major League Baseball. Whether as a pitcher or hitter, the stats say that if Ohtani gets into a high leverage situation, the smart money is on the Los Angeles Angels star.

As a hitter with two outs and a man in scoring position, Ohtani has yet to fail.

Hitting in baseball is often not about who succeeds the most, but who fails the least. It’s the nature of a sport where the best hitters fail seven out of every ten times. To literally never fail in that spot is nothing short of amazing.

And when he’s pitching in the same high leverage spots, Ohtani has been quite stingy.

Numbers like this make us think that Logan Morrison might be on to something.
