Shohei Ohtani will not hit in outing Wednesday night

Los Angeles starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani is not in the lineup Wednesday in the team's game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

What It Means:

Ohtani is on the bump against the Rays lineup in Anaheim, but he won't be hitting. Manager Joe Maddon is citing a short bench - Anthony Rendon was just placed on the injured list due to a knee injury - as the reason why. He'll be replaced at designated hitter by Phil Gosselin against Rays opener Andrew Kittredge.

In 114 plate appearances this season, Ohtani has a .264 batting average with a .938 OPS, 9 home runs, 21 runs and 22 RBI.
