Last Updated on July 7, 2024 by Matt Musico

Two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani rocked the baseball world by signing a 10-year, $700 million deal as a free agent to join the Los Angeles Dodgers this past winter. We’re very excited to see him launch taters with his new team for the foreseeable future. That’s why we’re firing up our 2024 Shohei Ohtani Home Run Tracker.

This will work just like our 2023 trackers. Once Ohtani starts launching balls over the wall at Dodger Stadium and all over the league, we’ll keep track of his progress here. For each dinger slugged, we will include information on the date, opponent, distance, exit velocity, and a video.

Shohei Ohtani’s Home Runs Through the Years

Ohtani’s offensive breakout took a few years to happen after making his MLB debut with the Los Angeles Angels. But once it happened, the rest has been history. Between 2018 and 2020, Ohtani slashed .269/.340/.503 with 47 homers, 47 doubles, 147 RBI, and 133 runs scored in 967 plate appearances. He didn’t accumulate more than 425 plate appearances in a season.

That changed in 2021 when he racked up 639 plate appearances. He didn’t fall below 599 trips to the plate between 2021-24, and the results speak for themselves. Ohtani entered 2024 with three straight seasons of 30-plus homers. He’s surpassed 40 homers on two of those occasions (46 in 2021 and 44 in 2023) and has found himself toward the top of the Angels’ single-season home run leaderboard.

Ohtani also put up terrific numbers on the mound, making it easy to draw constant comparisons between him and Babe Ruth. It’s incredibly fun to look through his Baseball Reference page to see what he’s accomplished over the years.

Before leaving the Angels for the Dodgers, Ohtani won two AL MVP Awards. And if it wasn’t for Aaron Judge and his American League record 62 homers in 2022, he would’ve won the award three straight seasons.

Which Month of the Season is Ohtani’s Favorite?

We’ve seen patterns in Ohtani’s offense throughout the regular season well before he ever donned Dodger blue for the first time. Here’s a month-by-month breakdown of the slugger’s OPS, homers, and RBI so far during his career (all stats current as of June 3, 2024):

  • ​March/April: .929, 30, 79
  • May: .856, 34, 102
  • June: 1.184, 43, 91
  • July: .899, 31, 66
  • August: .883, 28, 82
  • Sept/Oct: .856, 19, 55

It’s easy to see that June has been Ohtani’s favorite month of the year to hit. Since the two-way star is only hitting in 2024 and not trying to also chase a Cy Young Award, his hitting abilities will give him a legitimate chance to win the NL MVP Award strictly as L.A.’s designated hitter.

The Milestones Ohtani Has Already Reached in 2024

There are two specific records/clubs Ohtani joined early on during the 2024 season. He entered the year with 171 career homers, which was four behind Hideki Matsui for the most all-time in MLB history by a Japanese-born player. It didn’t take him long to etch his name at the top of this list. As of June 3, 2024, Ohtani’s home run number is sitting at 185 (and counting, obviously).

Something that has consistently flown under the radar is Ohtani’s ability to grab a stolen base here and there. He’s already racked up two 20-20 campaigns in his career, one of which came last season in 2023. Ohtani has six years of at least 10-plus steals under his belt already.

​Upon swiping his 100th career base, he joined Ichiro Suzuki as the only two Japanese players with 100 homers and 100 steals.
