Angels' Shohei Ohtani returns to mound to face A's

Shohei Ohtani will get the start for the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday afternoon in the finale of a three-game series against the Oakland Athletics in Anaheim, Calif.

The Angels (72-76) considered shutting down Ohtani from pitching the remainder of the season after he complained of soreness in his right arm on Wednesday. But after a bullpen session under the watchful eye of Angels pitching coach Matt Wise on Friday, Ohtani assured Angels manager Joe Maddon he was good to go.

"Wise came in right afterward and said it was like a full guerrilla bullpen, he went after it and Matty liked that," Maddon said. "Shohei was all about pitching on Sunday so we re-adjusted. It's up to the athlete. We've talked about that slot often, it's really listening to him, and he was adamant."
