The Angels announced on Wednesday that they have canceled their 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) home game against the Cincinnati Reds at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California, USA.

The day before (Nov. 21), Tropical Storm Hillary made landfall in the southwestern United States, causing the region to experience significant rainfall. This made the Cincinnati-Angels game on April 22 unplayable.

The two teams, who were scheduled to play a three-game series, will make up the game on the 23rd and play two games in a doubleheader on the 24th.

Ohtani, who skipped one start due to fatigue, will pitch the first game of the doubleheader on the 24th. It will be two weeks since Ohtani last pitched against the San Francisco Giants on April 10.

In 22 appearances on the mound this season, Ohtani is 10-5 with a 3.17 ERA and 165 strikeouts.

The Cincinnati pitcher who will start against Ohtani is “Rookie” Andrew Abbott. A big leaguer this year, Abbott is 8-3 with a 2.99 ERA.

Meanwhile, the Angels have canceled two home games due to Hurricane Irma. First, they moved a doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays on Sept. 21 to Sept. 20.

According to local media, it has been 40 years since 1983 that a major league team has rescheduled more than two games in a season due to inclement weather.
