Shohei Ohtani resumed pitching practice on Saturday after more than two months of rest, mixing curveballs and sliders into a total of 23 pitches during a light bullpen session before the Los Angeles Angels' game against the Oakland Athletics.

It was Ohtani's first time throwing off the mound since June 6, a day before the Japanese right-hander received stem cell and platelet-rich plasma injections to treat a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow.

He said it is now a matter of monitoring his body before deciding the next step.
