However, he said he would not be available to hit at all on Saturday, which is the day before he’s scheduled to pitch.“What’s significant is not the two or three swings he takes (in the game) or the five or six pitches he sees, but the prep work getting there and maybe not getting used,” Scioscia said. “The day before he pitches is definitely a day we want to get him into that pitching mode.” OAKLAND — The Angels’ second lineup of the year did not include Shohei Ohtani.Manager Mike Scioscia instead had Chris Young as the designated hitter on Friday night, with the Angels facing left-handed Sean Manaea.“We’ve got to get Chris Young’s bat in the lineup and try to get him to match up against a lefty,” Scioscia said.Young barely played in spring training, having missed most of the exhibition schedule with a strained calf, so Scioscia wanted to get him some at-bats.
