  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Records two outs, earns win

    Mayers (1-0) earned the win Sunday in relief against Texas after pitching a scoreless outing, allowing one walk across two-thirds of an inning.

    Mayers had been struggling badly to begin the season and gave up five earned runs and three hits while posting a 2:2 K:BB through his first two outings (0.2 innings), but he managed to bounce back here en route to his first win of the campaign. The outing wasn't a dominant one by any means and the command issues are still persistent, as evidenced by his 0:3 K:BB and the fact that he only tossed three of his 10 pitches for strikes, but at least he got the job done when called upon in this one. His fantasy upside remains minimal, though.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Gets over $2 million

    Mayers signed a one-year, $2.15 million contract with the Angels on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Mayers is in his second season of arbitration eligibility. The 30-year-old righty is coming off a season in which he posted a 3.84 over a career-high 75 innings.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Picks up win Wednesday

    Mayers (5-5) earned the win over the White Sox on Wednesday, striking out the side in his lone inning of work.

    The right-hander took over in the seventh inning with the score tied 2-2. He needed 16 pitches to strike out all three batters he faced, and he picked up the win as a result of Brandon Marsh's homer in the top of the following frame. Mayers has struck out 82 batters in 66.1 innings this season while notching a career-high 15 holds and two saves.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Struggles as opener

    Mayers (4-5) took the loss against San Diego on Wednesday, pitching 1.2 innings and allowing two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out one.

    The right-hander was selected to open the Angels' bullpen game, and he made it through the first inning without incident. However, the Padres drove Mayers from the contest in the second, converting a walk and a double into a run before pummeling a pair of subsequent relievers for seven additional runs. Mayers has pitched to a 4.34 ERA and 77:21 K:BB across 64.1 innings this season. He's struggled of late, posting a 7.36 ERA over his past six outings.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Starting bullpen game

    Mayers will start Wednesday's game against the Padres, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

    Manager Joe Maddon will employ a bullpen game in the series finale at San Diego, and Mayers will be the first reliever to take the mound. He has a 4.16 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 76:20 K:BB across 62.2 innings this season and figures to pitch one or two frames Wednesday.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Poor showing over two innings

    Mayers allowed two runs on three hits while striking out a batter over two innings of work Monday against the Yankees. He did not factor into the decision.

    Mayers started Monday's game and opened it up by allowing back-to-back doubles and a single. He was able to limit the damage by inducing a double play, but the Angels still went down into an early 2-0 hole. He would end up tossing a 1-2-3 second inning and his day was over after 29 pitches. The 29-year-old righty owns a 4.23 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 75:20 K:BB over 61.2 innings.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Starting Monday

    Mayers will start Monday's game against the Yankees, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Mayers last pitched Friday and will make his first start of the season for the Angels in what is likely to be a bullpen game. The right-hander hasn't pitched more that two frames in an appearance this season, and that's unlikely to change while starting Monday's contest. He has a 4.07 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 74:20 K:BB over 59.2 innings this season.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Nabs win in relief

    Mayers (3-4) earned the win over Detroit on Tuesday as a result of pitching two scoreless innings, during which he allowed one hit and struck out four batters.

    The right-hander was brought in to handle the bottom of the eighth inning with the score tied 2-2. He promptly struck out the side on 10 pitches, then watched as the Angels put up six runs in the top of the following frame. Mayers returned to close things out in the bottom half of the ninth, allowing just a one-out single. Though he has been pitching mostly in lower-leverage situations of late, the veteran reliever has put together a string of four straight scoreless outings in which he's posted a 7:1 K:BB across 6.1 innings.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Dropping from high-leverage role

    Manager Joe Maddon said Tuesday that he'll avoid using Mayers in high-leverage spots for the immediate future, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander ranks second on the team with 13 holds, but he's given up three runs over three frames in his past five outings. Mayers posted a 2.10 ERA and 0.90 WHIP for the Angels in 2020, but he's been unable to replicate those numbers this season.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Secures 11th hold

    Mayers tossed a scoreless inning to pick up the hold against Boston on Tuesday. He allowed one walk and struck out one batter.

    The righty reliever had some issues with his control -- only eight of his 17 pitches were strikes -- but he nonetheless kept the Red Sox off the scoreboard and served as an effective bridge between starter Shohei Ohtani and closer Raisel Iglesias. Over his past nine outings, Mayers has racked up a 15:4 K:BB across 10 innings while posting a 1.80 ERA and 1.10 WHIP.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Logs ineffective outing Thursday

    Mayers failed to record an out while allowing three runs on three hits and one walk Thursday against Detroit.

    Mayers entered the contest in the eighth inning with Los Angeles staked to a six-run lead. He gave up a double, two singles, a walk and a run before being removed, and two more of the runners he allowed to reach base crossed the plate after his departure. The Angels went on to win the contest, so Mayers' rough outing didn't affect the final outcome, but it did lead to Raisel Iglesias needing to pitch two innings to pick up the save. Mayers entered the game having logged eight straight scoreless appearances, and he figures to continue to be used in high-leverage situations despite Thursday's implosion.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Takes third loss Friday

    Mayers (1-3) allowed three earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out one across 1.1 innings Friday, taking the loss to the Athletics.

    Mayers allowed a three-run home run to Chad Pinder in the seventh inning. The 29-year-old has been relied upon as one of the Angels' high-leverage relievers. He has received occasional save opportunities as Raisel Iglesias has struggled this season. However, Mayers has had his own struggles with a 5.48 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP across 21.1 innings, although he does carry an impressive 12.66 K/9.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Earns second save

    Mayers allowed no hits and two walks while striking out three in one inning to earn the save against the Red Sox on Sunday.

    Mayers picked up his second save of the season since the Angels elected to use Raisel Iglesias in the eighth inning of Sunday's close matchup. Mayers has converted on two of his four save chances this year and has posted a 4.34 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 18.2 innings in 2021. While Mayers' performance Sunday was encouraging, Iglesias still appears to be firmly entrenched as the Angels' closer.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Hit hard in relief loss

    Mayers (1-2) was charged with a loss and a blown save as a result of giving up four runs on four hits over one-third of an inning against Tampa Bay on Thursday.

    Mayers' first outing since returning from a brief stay on the COVID-19 list wasn't pretty, as he gave up a solo home run to Mike Zunino in the seventh inning and was charged with three more runs in the eighth after yielding a hit to each of the three batters he faced. The right-hander has been utilized in high-leverage situations throughout the campaign, and that doesn't figure to change in spite of the fact that Thursday's rough outing pushed his ERA all the way up to 4.91 through 15 appearances.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Back from injured list

    Mayers (undisclosed) was activated from the injured list Wednesday.

    The 29-year-old was placed on the injured list Monday for an unspecified reason, and his return two days later confirms he was in the COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Mayers has a 2.51 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 18:6 K:BB with one save and four holds this season, and he should return to a high-leverage role now that he's back on the roster.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Put on injured list

    Mayers was placed on the injured list for an unspecificed reason Monday.

    The team failed to include an injury designation, likely meaning the reliever's absence is due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols. The Angels expect Mayers to return to action within a few days, per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Rough outing Wednesday

    Mayers (1-1) took the loss against Texas on Wednesday, allowing three runs on two hits and a walk without recording an out.

    Mayers entered the contest with a pristine 0.93 ERA over eight appearances, but that number is now a less extraordinary 3.72 following Wednesday's blowup. The right-hander was burned by a pair of home runs, and all four runs he has allowed this season have come by way of the long ball. Despite the tough outing, Mayers should still factor prominently into the Angels' bullpen mix.

  • Angels' Mike Mayers: Picks up first save of season

    Mayers recorded the save Monday against the Astros after allowing one run on one hit in the ninth inning.

    Mayers entered the game holding a two-run lead and gave up a solo shot to Kyle Tucker, but he closed the door effectively despite not striking anyone out. This was Mayers' first save of the season, and while he might see further opportunities here and there, he's not expected to replace Raisel Iglesias as the Angels' full-time closer anytime soon.
