Pujols, Ohtani eyeing return for Opening Day

Despite being in different stages of both their careers and their respective rehabs, Albert Pujols and Shohei Ohtani are both eyeing a return to the Los Angeles Angels' starting lineup by Opening Day.

Albert Pujols ate healthier over the offseason and showed up looking slimmer despite spending most of the offseason recovering from knee surgery. He has been in Arizona for nearly a week and is hoping to be ready by Opening Day. As for how much 1B he'll play? "Last year we were expecting 30 games and I ended up playing over 100 games, I think (70). It all depends on how I feel and what's best for the team."

Shohei Ohtani said, through his interpreter, that he "would like to make it (back) on Opening Day," even though the Angels are targeting him for May. "That's the thought," Ohtani said. "But I'm not trying to rush myself."

One bettor at The SuperBook is likely sweating a $50,000 wager on the Lakers to make the playoffs at -500 odds. The bet would win $10,000.

Even LeBron released a statement on CC's retirement!: "I want to congratulate CC on an incredible Major League career. Not only is he one of the best pitchers to ever play the game, but he'll also go down as one of the great competitors to ever pick up a baseball. His genuine love of the game and his undeniable passion have brought so much joy to fans for 19 seasons. It's been an honor to watch him play and I'm excited to see what he'll take on next. Congrats my friend." -Via Yankees PR
