Shohei Ohtani is off to a tremendous start in his first season with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and his teammates are enjoying being along for the ride.

"It's just absolutely insane what this guy can do on a baseball field," Dodgers third baseman Max Muncy told "Foul Territory" Tuesday. "It's been a lot of fun. I've been enjoying every second of it, and I think everyone else has. We keep getting wowed every single day, and we're only at the beginning of May. It's going to be exciting to see what's going to happen the rest of the year with him."

Ohtani hit his fourth homer in three games in Monday's 6-3 win over the Miami Marlins to take over the MLB lead with 11 long balls in 36 contests. The 29-year-old ranks at or near the top of the leaderboard in almost every major offensive category.

Ohtani signed a 10-year, $700-million contract to join the Dodgers in the offseason. The two-time AL MVP isn't pitching this season after undergoing elbow surgery to address a UCL tear in his right elbow last September.
