Shohei Ohtani was pulled out of the Los Angeles Angels’ game against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday due to right groin tightness. His interpreter, Ippei Mizuhara, told reporters after the game that Ohtani intended to play in the Monday afternoon series finale in Chicago, but Angels manager Joe Maddon did not speculate on when Ohtani would be available next.

Ohtani, the reigning American League MVP, did not have a hit in three at-bats as the Angels’ designated hitter. He drove in a run on a third-inning groundout and drew a walk.
