Is there an explanation for Shohei Ohtani’s unfortunate season-ending injury?
Fans are speculating about a theory that has gone viral, suggesting that rap superstar Drake cursed Ohtani’s season by wearing his jersey. Of course the initial Drake curse on Ohtani was set back in early August.
The theory stems from a YouTuber’s post listing a series of setbacks that Ohtani experienced after Drake wore his jersey. These setbacks include hand cramps, arm fatigue, and ultimately a torn UCL, preventing Ohtani from pitching for the rest of the season.
Shohei Since Drake was seen wearing his Jersey….
8/3 – Leaves start early with hand cramp
8/13 – Experiencing Arm Fatigue and misses start
8/23 – Leaves start early with Arm Fatigue
8/24 Diagnosed with torn UCL – Won't again this season

This injury is a significant blow to Ohtani’s historic season, where he has excelled both as a hitter and a pitcher.
Fans are drawing connections between Drake and his alleged curses, pointing out instances where athletes and teams have suffered misfortunes after he showed support for them. Drake has playfully acknowledged this phenomenon in the past.
Given Ohtani’s impending free agency and potential record-breaking contract, this injury could become a memorable example of a Drake-cursed athlete.
