Shohei Ohtani is about to represent the LA Angels very well when it comes to earning awards this offseason, and it’s already started.

Ohtani has been named MLB Player of the Year by Baseball America.

He truly was the best player in baseball this year, and it wasn’t even close. Ohtani put up a .257/.372/.592 (.965 OPS) line this season at the plate, while clubbing 46 home runs and eight triples (MLB-leading), to go along with 103 runs scored and 100 runs driven in. He also had a 9-2 record on the mound (23 starts) and recorded a 3.18 ERA and 1.090 WHIP.

Shohei Ohtani is not just the AL MVP, but was the best player in the game this season.

Shohei Ohtani is about to run away with the AL MVP award, but it’s also great to see him win other awards along the way. Seeing him win this shows how good the Angels have the chance to be next year.

They have the best player of the last 10 years in Mike Trout, and this past year’s best player as well.

A player in Ohtani absolutely is deserving of this honor. He’s one of the top couple hitters in baseball (and he’d be the best if he was playing with even any lineup protection), he’s the Ace of his team and a top ten pitcher in baseball, he’s the fastest baserunner in the American League, and he even plays the outfield.

Next. Mayers and Cishek need to stay

That’s correct. Ohtani is the best DH in baseball who also is an outfielder and is the Ace of his squad. And by the way, he stole 26 bags this year and was named the fastest baserunner in the AL by his peers. He was the best player in baseball this season and anyone who disagrees should be banned from ever talking about baseball again.
