Player Outlook
Last season, Mickey Moniak made waves in the majors for the first time since being taken with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 First-Year Player Draft. Despite a strong spring training, he opened the campaign in the minors, where he shined with a .940 OPS over 33 games. That led to a mid-May call-up to the majors, and Moniak stayed with the big club for the remainder of the campaign, eventually working his way into a starting role due in part to injuries to Mike Trout and Taylor Ward. From his May 18 call-up through the end of July, Moniak recorded a standout .913 OPS with 11 homers and 35 RBI over 54 games, but he faded to a .596 OPS over the final two months of the campaign. There are some glaring holes in Moniak's offensive game that shouldn't be overlooked -- most notably, he struck out 35.0 percent of the time last season and batted just .222 against southpaws -- so he may be best-suited to work in a platoon. However, the Angels aren't exactly flush with outfield depth, thus Moniak will likely get ample opportunity to build upon his breakthrough next year.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Sitting against right-hander again

    Moniak is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. The lefty-hitting Moniak has now hit the bench in two of the Angels' three games in Boston, despite the Red Sox bringing right-handed starting pitchers to the hill for each contest. Though Moniak appeared to have taken hold of a strong-side platoon role earlier this season, his grasp on regular playing time versus righties may have loosened now that he's hitting just .179/.281/.214 through 32 plate appearances in 2024.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Not in Friday's lineup

    Moniak is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Sox, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports. Moniak started the previous five games and will take a seat after going 4-for-21 with eight strikeouts during that stretch. Aaron Hicks will man right field and bat fifth Friday at Boston.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Nabs third consecutive start

    Moniak will start in right field and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Red Sox. Moniak will draw his third straight start, all of which have come against right-handed starting pitchers. Aaron Hicks has now sat twice during that three-game stretch and appears to be the Angels' No. 4 outfielder, though Hicks should play ahead of Moniak against left-handed pitching.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Cleared to start Monday

    Moniak (illness) will start in right field and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Marlins, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports. Moniak didn't play in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Orioles after being scratched prior to first pitch while he battled an illness, but he appears to have made enough progress in his recovery to make his first start of the season Monday. Moniak looks to be the Angels' fourth or fifth outfielder for the time being, though more consistent playing time could open up if the Halos elect to give Mike Trout, Taylor Ward or Aaron Hicks more starts at designated hitter and phase out Miguel Sano.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Scratched with illness

    Moniak was scratched from Sunday's lineup against Baltimore due to an illness, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports. Moniak was scheduled to make his first start of the season Sunday with the Orioles sending out lefty Tyler Wells, but the ailment will instead keep the outfielder on the bench. Jo Adell will take over in right field and bat eighth.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: On bench against righty

    Moniak is out of the lineup for Thursday's season opener in Baltimore. Even with the Orioles throwing right-hander Corbin Burnes, it will be Aaron Hicks in right field over Moniak. It would not seem to bode well for Moniak's chances at carving out regular playing time.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Could hit leadoff

    Angels manager Ron Washington said Thursday that he envisions Moniak and Luis Rengifo as candidates to bat leadoff, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Given the splits between the two players, it would make sense that Moniak hits leadoff against right-handers and Rengifo bats leadoff versus lefties. Moniak -- who is likely to sit against southpaws in favor of Aaron Hicks -- slashed .294/.322/.544 versus right-handed pitching in 2023.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Day off Sunday

    Moniak is not in Sunday's lineup against the Athletics. Moniak dealt with some injuries this season, but it was still a big career resurgence for the 2016 No. 1 overall pick, as he slashed .280/.307/.495 with 14 home runs and six steals in 85 games.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Activated from IL

    The Angels reinstated Moniak (back) from the 10-day injured list Thursday. Moniak went on the injured list Sept. 15 due to tightness on the left side of his back, though he hasn't seen game action since Sept. 5. Now that he's healthy, he figures to slide back into an everyday role in Los Angeles' outfield for the final series of the season. Jared Walsh was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Placed on 10-day IL

    The Angels placed Moniak on the 10-day injured list Friday with left back tightness. This back tightness has kept Moniak sidelined since Sept. 5 and the Angels are finally putting him on the IL in a move that is retroactive to Sept. 14. Jordyn Adams has been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move to provide the Halos with some much-needed outfield depth.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: No baseball activities yet

    Moniak (back) remains out of the lineup Friday and hasn't yet resumed baseball activities, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. Moniak hasn't appeared in a game since Sept. 5 due to lingering back discomfort and there is no timeline for his return, but the Angels have so far decided against placing him on the 10-day injured list. Blum notes that placing the outfielder on the IL and then calling up another player might add to the team's payroll, which could be the motivation behind the lack of a transaction.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Won't play in series finale

    Angels manager Phil Nevin confirmed earlier this week that Moniak (back) will remain out for at least the rest of the team's series in Seattle that concludes Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Moniak will end up missing more than a week due to his back injury, which cropped up during batting practice prior to last Thursday's game against the Guardians. Brett Phillips has started in center field in each of the Halos' last seven games while Moniak has been on the mend. The Angels will check in and see how Moniak is feeling following Thursday's off day before deciding on his status for the three-game series with the Tigers this weekend.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: May not return until Friday

    Moniak (back) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Guardians and could miss the upcoming three-game series against the Mariners, which begins Monday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. Moniak's absence Sunday will be his fifth straight due to back tightness, and it appears he could be sidelined for at least a few more games. If it looks like his absence will extend beyond Friday, the 25-year-old could be moved to the injured list. Randal Grichuk, Brett Phillips and Jordyn Adams will start from left to right in the outfield.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Sitting fourth straight

    Moniak (back) isn't in the Angels' lineup Saturday against Cleveland. Moniak hasn't played since Tuesday, as back issues continue to plague the 25-year-old outfielder. Randal Grichuk, Brett Phillips and Trey Cabbage will make up the Angels' outfield while Moniak recovers.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Remains out Friday

    Moniak (back) isn't in the Angels' lineup Friday against Cleveland, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports. Back tightness caused Moniak to be a late scratch from the Angels' lineup ahead of Thursday's series opener, and the issue remains severe enough to keep him out of another game Friday. Brett Phillips will start in center field and bat eighth while Moniak recovers.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Scratched with back tightness

    Moniak was scratched from Thursday's game against the Guardians with back tightness, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Moniak was originally slated to hit sixth in the order and start in center field. The severity of the issue is unclear. Brett Phillips will take over center field in Moniak's place and hit eighth.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Sitting Wednesday

    Moniak isn't in the Angels' lineup Wednesday against Baltimore. Moniak will get a breather after going 5-for-13 with two RBI and a run scored across his last three games. Randal Grichuk, Brett Phillips and Trey Cabbage will man the Angels' outfield while Moniak sits.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Hitless in return

    Moniak went 0-for-4 in a loss to Oakland on Friday. Moniak was able to return to the lineup after exiting Tuesday's contest against the Phillies with back soreness. The outfielder started in center field Friday and batted eighth in the order, continuing a recent trend of hitting near the bottom of the lineup after he spent time in the leadoff spot earlier this season. Moniak's move down the order has coincided with his extended struggles making contact -- since the start of August, he's batting just .193 with a 44.4 percent strikeout rate.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Returns to lineup Friday

    Moniak (back) is starting in center field and batting eighth Friday against the Athletics. Moniak missed Wednesday's series finale in Philadelphia due to back soreness, but he's apparently feeling better heading into the Angels' three-game weekend set in Oakland. The 25-year-old has enjoyed a mini-breakout this season, delivering an .808 OPS with 13 homers and six steals through 78 games.

  • Angels' Mickey Moniak: Out of lineup Wednesday

    Moniak (back) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest in Philadelphia, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Moniak had to be removed from Tuesday's loss to the Phillies with back soreness. There's a chance the left-handed batter wouldn't have started Wednesday, anyway, with southpaw Cristopher Sanchez toeing the slab for the Phillies. The Angels are idle Thursday, so Moniak will hope to be ready to go Friday in Oakland. Luis Rengifo is in center field Wednesday.
