AL MVP lock Shohei Ohtani keeps boosting his incredible numbers, and keeps making jaws drop.

The Los Angeles Angels’ two-way superstar obliterated a pitch from New York Yankees left-hander Andrew Heaney on Monday night for home run No. 42 on the season. And it was a very important homer, giving the Halos a 6-5 lead.

Check out the ridiculous blast:

Now that’s light-tower power.

The 111.8 mph homer is the 22nd blast Ohtani has hit with an exit velocity of at least 110 mph this season. He hits a lot of dingers, and they’re rarely cheapies.

Ohtani leads the majors with 42 homers, four ahead of anybody else (Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Salvador Pérez have 38). And he has a 3.00 ERA in 105 innings pitched. It’s mind-blowing what he’s doing this season.
