The legend of Shohei Ohtani is growing by the day.

The 23-year-old Japanese rookie has already made history. He's been a legitimate two-way player for the Los Angeles Angels so far this season.

As a hitter, Ohtani is 7-for-18 with three home runs. He might be even more impressive on the mound.

Already 1-0, Ohtani is perfect through six innings in his second start against the Oakland Athletics. He's been lights out.

Ohtani has retired 11 of 18 batters via strikeout.

That's nasty.

If Ohtani throws a perfect game in his second start, the hype surrounding this dude will be off the charts.

So far, he's lived up to it and then some. He's making baseball fun in the early going.
