Los Angeles Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani has struggled during spring training. In two starts, he has a 27.00 ERA and batted .083 with nine strikeouts in 24 at-bats. Many are calling for him to start in minor leagues to get his sea legs. He would be chewed up and spit out if he tried to go up against real MLB competition. Still, Ohtani is a star and it's better to throw him into the fire to see what he's made of instead of babying him. What do you think? ⚾

The Ohtani Experiment has started and the early results are not good. Ohtani has been shelled since his great start against the Milwaukee Brewers. Having a 27.00 ERA is terrible even by spring training standards. His batting average is not any better, only managing two hits in 24 at-bats. 

Making the adjustment to MLB is difficult for anyone, even blue-chip talent like Ohtani. He needs to start in the minor leagues to get used to the game and improve.

Ohtani doesn't need the minor leagues. The lower level of competition would bore him. Ohtani needs the bright lights to perform, and he would only get that from MLB. He has shown what he can do against the Brewers earlier in spring training. He also electrified baseball at the World Baseball Classic, proving he can compete with the best in the game. 

Ohtani shouldn't be relegated the minors when his talent is ready for the big time. He should be on the Opening Day roster.
