Power hitters don't even try to hit for average. They are going up there and playing longball and that's it. Schwarber was under the Mendoza Line this last season. Aaron Judge hit 0.267 last year and Alonso hit like 0.251 in 2023. The MLB leader in HRs last year hit 0.283 and he had 100+ more ABs than Ohtani. A handful of players keep an average above 0.300, and Ohtani was 1 of about 10 to do it last year.

He's undoubtedly a generational talent because he's one of the best players when it comes to pitching or hitting.
Since he can't pitch for a year or two(maybe more) does that mean then that he's no longer a generational talent?

IT would be interesting to see him say being a DH for a full season and concentrate on his hitting to exclude all else
