Angels push back Ohtani's next outing as starting pitcher

TORONTO (AP) The Los Angeles Angels are pushing back Shohei Ohtani's next outing as a starting pitcher to manage the workload of the two-way rookie, meaning he'll miss a much-anticipated showdown at Yankee Stadium against Masahiro Tanaka.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia made the announcement before Thursday's 8-1 win over the Blue Jays.

Ohtani is 4-1 with a 3.35 ERA in seven starts. The 23-year-old had been scheduled to pitch against his Japanese countryman on Sunday - Scioscia said Ohtani will be available to hit against Tanaka.
