Shohei Ohtani Had His Best Month and Possibly the Best June Ever.

In June, Ohtani hit a whopping 15 home runs in 126 plate appearances while also driving in 29 runs. He managed to be an absolute monster at the dish while batting .394/.492/.952 for an insane 1.444 OPS. This sets a new personal record for Shohei for the highest OPS in a single month. 

Shohei was not only untouchable at the plate, but untouchable on the mound, as well, in June. In his five games started in June, Ohtani went 2-2 with a 3.26 ERA with 37 strikeouts over 30.1 innings pitched.

If this monsterous June wasn’t good enough for Shohei Ohtani, he made sure to end it on a high note. In June 30th’s game against the Diamondbacks, Shohei walloped a 493 ft home run. This home run is the longest by any player this season and is the longest home run of Ohtani’s career.

Shohei Ohtani is barreling towards the best season of his young career and is not slowing down. He was already projected to receive over $500 million in free agency this winter. He’s currently on pace for a 60 home run season while also having a Cy Young caliber year. If he continues on this historic tear, will $500 million be a bargain?
