So looks like his DL stint is over and he is coming back. Since he isnt pitching.... I guess this means he will have an OF card of some sort now?

position change for his live series seems likely but he does have a POTM card that is OF only so who knows really... might just leave his Live Series as a SP card.

His POTM card is OF only i believe

This would be in relation to his LS card.  His POTM card cannot change.  But he will be a live DH only it looks like for rest of season.

He came back three games ago. 

They should update (or add) his LS card to allow him to start in the field, but I suspect they will just let his POTM card fill that function.

Nah, this is LS.  They gotta change his position from SP to RF or something.

I’d be surprised if they do that. This isn’t as simple of a change as moving someone from left field to center field. Ohtani is still a pitcher and people will want to pitch with him. I don’t even know if it’s been confirmed he won’t pitch again this year, although I suspect that may be the case. The real solution is to allow his one LS card to either be in the rotation or the lineup. The second solution would be to just add a second LS card for position player. But they’ve had plenty of time to do either, and have done neither. I don’t think the answer at this point is to take away his ability to be a starting pitcher in the game.

IDK man.  That is why I asked.  Will be interesting next Friday.
