Shohei Ohtani Has 'Negative Impression' of 2022 Season

It was another disappointing season for the Los Angeles Angels.

On Tuesday, while speaking to reporters in Japan, Shohei Ohtani told them that he was left with a ''rather negative impression'' of the 2022 season. 
Ohtani, who is slated to become a free agent next offseason, elaborated that it was a ''good season for me personally,'' but added that he was disappointed with his team's overall performance, specifically highlighting the Angels' 14-game losing streak in early June which eventually led to the firing of manager Joe Maddon. 

The Angels finished 73-89 overall and missed the playoffs for the eighth straight season, despite having Mike Trout and Ohtani, who crushed 34 home runs while leading the team with a fantastic 2.33 ERA over 166 innings and 28 starts.

Shohei Ohtani goes above and beyond and leaves it all on the field for his team every year, and every year the Angels massively disappoint, so it's becoming more and more likely that we see Ohtani look for a contract elsewhere next offseason.
