No. 2 LA Angels prediction for the remainder of the 2021 season: Shohei Ohtani will hit 50 home run mark
Shohei Ohtani has been struggling a little bit for the LA Angels lately.
He hasn’t hit a home run in 12 games (all stats in this article are entering the Blue Jays doubleheader). He still leads the league with 37 home runs, so it’s not the biggest deal.
That being said, he certainly hasn’t been the same Ohtani we’re used to in these last couple of weeks.
He’ll be alright, though. We’ve got 50 games left, and in those 50 games, he’ll get that home run total up to 50. He won’t struggle like this forever. The best players in this game slump every year.
I know Ohtani will be fine because I know his head’s on straight. This is the same guy who hasn’t had any problems on the mound, and played in the outfield during the Freeway Series. He’s still out there playing hard and doing a lot of things the right way.
It’s only his offense that hasn’t been up to speed. He’ll figure out that aspect of the game shortly.
