Ty Buttrey tossed a scoreless eighth inning in front of him, but it remains to be seen whether that will be the usual arrangement for the Angels' high-leverage duo moving forward.

Robles could receive some ninth-inning opportunities after Cody Allen was demoted from the closer role Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. The Angels didn't officially name a replacement in the ninth inning, with manager Brad Ausmus indicating they would "use some other guys." Robles and Ty Buttrey figure to be at the top of that list while Allen will slide into a lower-leverage role to try and straighten things out. Robles has a 3.18 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and impressive 16:3 K:BB over 11.1 innings to begin the season.
