[UPDATE 4/7 @ 10:55am]

Otani was fine as he rounded second base in the sixth inning, but he slipped a little after the bag and was thrown out trying to get to third base. He lightly twisted both his ankles and was treated with ice immediately after the play. He was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning as a precaution. Both he and Hideki Kuriyama are saying he is fine.
