Baseball star Ohtani says leg isn't affecting swing ahead of Mets game

Sports Scene


Los Angeles Dodgers star Shohei Ohtani has been playing with a bruised hamstring and has been told to take it easy, manager Dave Roberts said on Saturday. The Japanese baseball superstar was injured when he was hit by a pickoff throw during the Dodgers' last homestand. 

But Ohtani said that his leg injury is improving and won't affect his swing. 

"I don't think so. Obviously the leg isn't that great but I don't particularly think it's affecting the swing."

The first game of the Dodgers' series at the New York Mets was postponed because of heavy rain rolling through the New York City area. The game was supposed to start at 4:10 p.m., but has been rescheduled for the same time on Tuesday.
