Otani More Ankle Surgery

Shohei Otani had additional ankle surgery on October 12 to treat a posterior ankle impingement syndrome. Otani did not pitch in the World Baseball Classic because of ankle issues. It will take him two to three months of rehabilitation before he is healthy.

It is anticipated the Nippon Ham Fighters will post Otani to play major league baseball. With his injury riddled year and the international salary cap teams have to bid for foreign players under 25 years of age, the salary Otani will get will be restricted. If he waited two more years he would get Yu Darvish money.
