TEMPE http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authent...ran-jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani tossed his water bottle toward a clubhouse garbage can and missed, instead landing it in a laundry bin. He laughed out loud, smiled big as he so often does, then retrieved the trash and put it in the proper place.That’s about as close to throwing as the Japanese two-way star is right now.Ohtani wouldn’t change how he handled his elbow injury late last year, continuing to hit for the Angels until season’s end even if it meant delaying reconstructive surgery and his ability to pitch again until 2020.“I have no regrets about what happened last year. That’s what the team thought about me, the plan,” Ohtani said through interpreter Ippei Mizuhara. “In the end it didn’t work out but I still have no regrets.”The reigning AL Rookie of the Year is recovering from an Oct. 1 Tommy John surgery with the hope he will be able to bat in the Los Angeles lineup as early as May if all stays on schedule.“There’s a lot of variables. That’s the goal I’m shooting for but there might be some setbacks here and there,” Ohtani said. “If not, that’s what I’m trying to go for.”At Tempe Diablo Stadium, the scene Wednesday was a far cry from a year ago when Ohtani showed up at spring training with fanfare and faced a huge media contingent following his every move. For now, the two-way star isn’t even on the field as he works out inside.Even the second time around, “I feel just as nervous as last year, my first year.”Ohtani acknowledged that’s partly because he’s behind schedule with the extensive rehab and will have to “catch up to everybody.”“It’s going to be a slow process,” new manager Brad Ausmus said ahead of his club’s first on-field session for pitchers and catchers. “He gets his workouts in. Right now he’ll be mostly inside. We need to protect this guy long term, so we’re hoping for May but if it goes longer it goes longer.”The 24-year-old Ohtani spent time back home in Japan this offseason working through his rehabilitation David Freese Jersey , which right now includes dry swings only in terms of his hitting preparation.Ohtani said everything is going smoothly at this stage.“So far there’s nothing in my elbow, I don’t feel anything there. It’s been great,” he said. “I just need to watch my effort level, try to keep it down and listen to the trainers.”Ohtani went 4-2 with a 3.31 ERA in 10 starts as a pitcher. He played 104 games overall as a rookie, hitting .285 with 22 homers and 61 RBIs.While the Angels can’t wait to get Ohtani healthy to hit, they won’t rush him. He and Albert Pujols are expected to share designated hitter duties, with Pujols playing first on days Ohtani hits — that is, if Pujols is physically fine and performing, otherwise Justin Bour becomes an option. The free agent first baseman signed a $2.5 million, one-year deal in December.“That’s why we’re saying we’re going to be extremely cautious because we don’t want the fact that he might be able to DH affect him being able to pitch in 2020,” Ausmus said of Ohtani.Ohtani has accepted this year will be about what he can do behind the plate.“This season I’m obviously going to be prioritizing my hitting. That’s what I’m going to focus on right now,” he said. “We can push back the pitching because I’m not going to be pitching this season. So the plan is to get back hitting first and take it easy on the pitching side.”Notes: RHP Daniel Hudson is in camp after signing a minor league deal and getting an invite to big league spring training. If added to the 40-man roster, he would get a $1.5 million salary in the major leagues and would have the chance to earn $1.5 million in performance bonuses for games: $100,000 each for 20, 25 Tyler Glasnow Jersey , 30, 35 and 40, and $200,000 apiece for 45, 50, 55, 60 and 65. … 1B/DH Albert Pujols, who had season-ending knee surgery in August followed by the elbow procedure in September to remove bone spurs, will be worked in slowly. “Right now he’s capable of doing everything but we are going to monitor the workload,” Ausmus said. “We’re going to manage the workload to try and avoid any issues with most specifically the knee.” The 39-year-old slugger batted .245 with 19 homers and 64 RBIs playing 117 games in his 18th season. He has 633 career home runs. The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers asserted their dominance on the first day of play in the NLDS.Now the challenge for the home sides in Friday's Game 2s is to bank off the momentum gained from Game 1 and take a 2-0 series lead into Colorado and Atlanta, respectively.The Dodgers paved the easier path to victory Thursday, as they shutout the Braves at Dodger Stadium to set Clayton Kershaw up for success Friday.Milwaukee's peculiar bullpen strategy ended up working, but the Brewers needed 10 innings to dispense of the Rockies.The Brewers are expected to opt for a more conventional route with their pitching in Game 2 at Miller Park while their lineup tries to stay hot against a familiar foe. Friday NLDS ScheduleGame 2:Colorado at Milwaukee (4:15 p.m. ET, FS1)Game 2:Atlanta at Los Angeles (9:37 p.m. ET, FS1)Both games can be live-streamed on Fox Sports Go or the Fox Sports app.Brewers Looking For More Success Against AndersonTyler Anderson's August 4 start against the Brewers was one of his worst outings in the second half of the season.The left-handed starter was roughed up during a four-inning stintas the Brewers put up seven runs on seven hits.Jae C. Hong/Associated PressSix of those runs were scored in the first inning http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authent...ier-jersey , as the top of the Milwaukee order jumped on Anderson, with Travis Shaw's grand slam highlighting the offensive outburst.In Thursday's Game 1, Christian Yelich and Ryan Braun recorded two hits each out of the No. 2 and No. 3 positions in the order.Yelich, who should be the National League MVP, continued his tear at the plate with a three-run home run in the third inning.Jeff Roberson/Associated PressIf the top third of the order attains the same level of success it had against Anderson in August and in Game 1, the Brewers will push across a few runs in the opening innings.From the Rockies' perspective, they're hoping to get similar results out of Anderson as they did in September, as he allowed four earned runs in his last three regular-season starts.In his final start before the postseason, Anderson tossed 7.2 innings of shutout ball against the Washington Nationals.Jhoulys Chacin, who pitched for the Rockies at the start of his career, takes the mound for the Brewers in Game 2 after giving up one hit and one earned run in the NL Central tiebreaker against the Chicago Cubs Monday.Chacin's lone regular-season start against the Rockies came May 10, when he gave up four hits and two earned runs in 5.1 innings.In his last five starts, Chacin's conceded three runs or fewer, and his performance Monday suggests he'll produce another efficient outing.If Anderson and Chacin stay true to their recent form, a pitcher's duel will break out in Milwaukee Chad Kuhl Jersey , but it's hard to bet against the Brewers coming up with a few big hitsas they did in Game 1. Dodgers Trusting Kershaw To Earn Commanding LeadThe Dodgers possess an embarrassment of riches on the mound.After Hyun-Jin Ryu tossed seven shutout innings in Game 1, the Dodgers trot out Clayton Kershaw to the bump for Game 2.During the Dodgers' run to the World Series a year ago, Kershaw corrected the negative narrative surrounding his postseason performance.Kershaw won three of his first four postseason starts in 2017, and in those victories, he conceded six earned runs over 19.1 innings.Ross D. Franklin/Associated PressThe southpaw has also achieved plenty of success against Atlanta in his career, as he boasts a 4-0 record and 1.43 ERA in 10 starts versus the Braves.There's a good chance Kershaw spends as long as Ryu on the mound in Game 2, as he's lasted at least six innings in all but one of his starts since July.The one glimmer of hope the Braves have entering Game 2 comes from the amount of home runs Kershaw has given up over the last month.Six of the 17 home runs Kershaw conceded during the regular season came in September, but he didn't give up a home run as one of his five earned runs conceded Saturday against Arizona.If the Braves can take advantage of a mistake or two by Kershaw early in Game 2, they could provide themselves with a needed confidence boost on the road.Even if the Braves rough up Kershaw for a run or two, their pitching staff must keep the Dodgers' offense at bay, which is no easy task.Expect Game 2 at Dodger Stadium to be more competitive than Game 1, but the Dodgers will find a way to pull away in the middle innings, as the middle of their order comes up with a few run-scoring hits in clutch situations.Follow Joe on Twitter, JTansey90Statistics obtained from Baseball Reference
