Shohei Ohtani, whose rehab from Tommy John surgery was interrupted in September by knee surgery, has been cleared to throw from a mound, Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Tuesday.

Ohtani is expected to throw from the mound for three to four weeks before concluding his rehab, which will allow him about a month and a half of rest before the start of spring training.

The Angels are hoping to have Ohtani resume his role as a two-way player in 2020, most likely pitching one day a week and serving as the designated hitter three or four days a week.
