The season has already seen the Mariners and Angels making a lot of news. The Angels signed Shohei Ohtani out of Japan, giving him the chance to hit and pitch. His recent injury news was not what fans wanted to hear about, though, as he may not take the field again until the 2020 season. As for the Mariners, they made the news when James Paxton tossed a no-hitter and then again when Robinson Cano got suspended for failing a PED test.
