Maddon said he didn’t yet know when Shohei Ohtani would make his next start, after his encouragin­g outing Friday. Ohtani struck out five of the 10 batters he faced, and he hit 100 mph. This came just two days after he’d hit a 468foot homer. … Maddon has been impressed with the defense of shortstop prospect Jeremiah Jackson, whose reputation in the minors has been more for offense. Evaluators believe he’ll play second or third in the majors. But Maddon likes what he’s seen at shortstop.
