First look: Japanese star Shohei Ohtani arrives at Angels camp

Shohei Ohtani’s arrival at the Los Angeles Angels‘ spring training facility Tuesday consisted of a rush of media attention followed by a light toss.

Wednesday should offer fans a better look at the 23-year-old two-way player from Japan, as the Angels are conducting their first official workout for pitchers and catchers. Ohtani is also scheduled to address the media at 5 p.m. ET.

ESPN is in Tempe, Arizona, tracking Los Angeles’ offseason splash.

Shohei Ohtani just went off to the back fields at Tempe Diablo Stadium. Naturally, a mad rush followed him there.
