Sure, the Angels manager doesn't want to push the budding star too much as he is coming off October Tommy John surgery, but Thursday night was poised to be a MASSIVE night for Japanese baseball fans, as Ohtani, if in the lineup, would've been set to square off against fellow compatriot and Seattle Mariners starter, left-hander Yusei Kikuchi.
