Ohtani is a rare example in baseball of a top class all-rounder. Able to both bat and pitch, he's called a two-wayer.

Here are some highlights:
  • Ohtani is only the third player in history to get two pitching wins and three home runs in the first 10 games for his team
  • Pitching his second game, he forced 12 strikeouts, equalling an American League record for a pitcher in one of his first two games
  • He is only the third player ever to hit a home run in three consecutive games and pitch a game with more than 10 strikeouts in the same season.

Will the MLB allow him to do both?

So much money is invested they usually like to assign a player to one role.

MLB will do that ..they need to grow their business. The current model for MLB is old and stale. With every more popular faster sports like on the scene yearly , MLB is a dinosaur with its 4 hour games and stoppages of time. This kid has breathed a new breath into an old outdated sport.

Ohtani has strictly been and will probably continue to be a Designated Hitter when not pitching, not forcing him to play the field is one way to lessen his exposure to injury.
