Athletics P/DH Shohei Ohtani made his home pitching debut on Sunday afternoon against the Athletics. The right-hander threw 15 pitches, striking out Matt Joyce, Marcus Semien, and Jed Lowrie to get through the first inning easily. The Angels gave Ohtani a two-run lead in the bottom half of the inning.

Ohtani made his major league pitching debut last Sunday in Oakland, yielding three runs on three hits and a walk with six strikeouts across six innings.

On the hitting side of things, Ohtani has homered in three consecutive games. He’s very talented.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
