Shohei Ohtani saw six live pitches during a batting practice session on Wednesday, just his second of Spring Training.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says Ohtani wants to take 50 spring training at-bats to feel ready for the regular season.

The five at-bats he has taken through two live-BP sessions essentially count, Roberts said, as do indoor sessions off a Dodgers pitching machine that can mimic pitch characteristics.

"I feel like I have more than enough time to get 50 at-bats," Ohtani said.

Ohtani, 29, isn't expected to play in any of the Dodgers' Cactus League games this week but could play shortly thereafter.
