      Angels' Hansel Robles: Rounding into form

      Hansel Robles struck out all three batters he faced in Wednesday's loss to Oakland.After struggling mightily to begin the campaign, Robles has been dominant of late, hurling three straight scoreless one-inning outings with seven of his nine outs coming by way of strikeout during that span. His fastball is touching 96-97 mph again, per Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com, and two of the three batters he whiffed Wednesday went down swinging. Ty Buttrey has yet to allow a run since taking over as the top ninth-inning option Aug. 4, but should he falter, it stands to reason that Robles could eventually return to the closer role.

      Angels' Hansel Robles: Displays increased velocity

      Hansel Robles hit 97 mph on his fastball for the first time this season in Sunday's loss to Texas, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports. The right-hander allowed one hit and struck out three batters in a scoreless inning of work in the contest.Robles was bumped from the closer role last week after a miserable start to the campaign, but he has now posted consecutive scoreless outings. The 29-year-old's appearance Sunday was far from the intensity of a save chance -- he came on in the sixth inning with the Los Angeles Angels trailing by three -- but the increased fastball speed is promising nonetheless. Per Torres, Robles has struggled getting his adrenaline up in empty stadiums this season, and the team recently tried to address the issue "nutritionally."

      Angels' Hansel Robles: Out of closer role

      Manager Joe Maddon said during his pregame interview Tuesday that Hansel Robles is no longer the closer and the team will go "closer by committee," Trent Rush of Los Angeles Angels Radio Network reports.Maddon backed Robles as his closer just Sunday but quickly changed his tune, and indeed passed Robles over for a save chance Tuesday night. Ty Buttrey got the ball and converted a four-out save against Seattle. Robles still has not pitched since Aug. 1, when he allowed three runs on four hits -- including two home runs -- to blow the save against the Astros. Robles has given up nine earned runs total in 3.2 innings this season.

      Angels' Hansel Robles: Not available Sunday

      Hansel Robles is not available to pitch Sunday after pitching two days in a row, but manager Joe Maddon has not changed him out of the closer role yet, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. "Robles will not pitch today after two in a row," Maddon said. "If, in fact, I wanted to do something like that (remove Robles as the closer), I would not tell you guys first."Maddon's quote is obviously not a confirmation that Robles will keep the job, and it's not comforting that he won't announce a role change before it happens. In fact, even if someone else gets the save chance Sunday, there's no guarantee that Robles won't be called upon when the next opportunity for a save arises..

      Angels' Hansel Robles: Serves up two homers in blown save

      Hansel Robles was charged with the blown save after allowing three runs on four hits while recording one strikeout during the ninth inning of Saturday's extra-inning victory over the Astros.Robles was given a 3-1 lead to start the ninth inning, but he gave up a solo homer to Josh Reddick and a two-run shot to George Springer to put the Los Angeles Angels in the hole. He avoided the loss since the Halos rallied for a run in the bottom of the frame. The right-hander didn't have major control issues as he issued 18 of his 24 pitches for strikes, but he clearly wasn't fooling Houston's lineup. Robles surrendered only six home runs over 71 appearances in 2019, but he's already allowed three home runs through four outings this season.

      Angels' Hansel Robles: Charged with loss in relief

      Hansel Robles (0-1) was charged against the A's on Friday after allowing three runs (two earned) on one hit and a walk while striking out two across 1.1 innings.Robles came into the ninth inning with Los Angeles Angels trailing by one and delivered a scoreless frame. He then returned in the 10th after the A's evened the score, 3-3. Unfortunately, Robles struggled this time around, hitting Ramon Laureano with a pitch, then striking out Matt Chapman before walking Kris Davis and loading up the bases thanks to the new MLB extra inning rule, which places a batter on second to start extra innings. Robles was then replaced by southpaw Hoby Milner, who gave up a grand slam to Matt Olson on his first pitch. Despite the loss, Robles is locked in for the closer role in Anaheim.

      Angels' Hansel Robles: Appointed as closer

      Manager Joe Maddon said Tuesday that he plans to use Hansel Robles as the Los Angeles Angels' closer to begin the season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.After emerging as the Angels' closer early in the 2019 season and converting 23 of 27 save chances to go with shiny ratios (2.48 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, 9.3 K/9), Robles' status as the team's top end gamer was never in much doubt, though Maddon still made the right-hander earn the job in summer camp. Perhaps more notable than Robles being minted as the closer was the fact that Maddon said he doesn't envision the 29-year-old working multiple innings in his appearances early on during the season. That could imply some level of rigidity in Robles' role, which bodes well for him seeing nearly all of the Angels' save chances instead of occasionally being reserved for higher-leverage, non-save scenarios.
