Shohei Ohtani has a Grade 1-2 strain of the flexor pronator mass near his surgically repaired right elbow and will cease pitching for the foreseeable future.

The Angels said Ohtani is traveling with the team to Seattle and that his status as a designated hitter is "day to day."

Ohtani, who underwent Tommy John surgery in October 2018, has recorded only five outs in his first two starts of the season.
