Slegers was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
The righty appeared in three games after his June 30 call-up, allowing two runs on three hits and a pair of walks in 2.2 innings of work. In 27 games with the Angels in 2021, Slegers has pitched 23.2 innings with a rough 6.46 ERA. Kean Wong was recalled in a corresponding move Friday.
Slegers was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake prior to Wednesday's game against the Yankees.
This will mark Slegers' third stint with the Angels this season. The right-hander posted an ugly 6.43 during his previous 21 major-league innings to begin the campaign, though that number is largely inflated by his four runs allowed in just one-third of an inning against Oakland on May 27. James Hoyt was optioned to Salt Lake in a corresponding roster move.
Slegers was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.
Slegers has been in the minors for the majority of June, but was recalled Tuesday and threw one inning in relief. He allowed one earned run on two hits and a walk. Luis Rengifo was recalled in the corresponding move.
Slegers was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.
The right-hander was sent to Triple-A in late May, and he'll rejoin the Halos after spending the past couple weeks in the minors. Slegers has struggled in 2021 with a 6.30 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and 19:10 K:BB across 20 innings.
Slegers was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
Slegers struggled mightily in Thursday's loss to Oakland, as he allowed four runs on three hits and a walk while only recording one out. He'll now head to the minors after left-hander Jose Suarez was recalled in a corresponding move.
Slegers (2-2) allowed four runs on three hits and a walk while recording only one out via strikeout in a loss to Oakland on Thursday.
Spot starter Patrick Sandoval delivered five shutout innings Thursday, but Slegers made a mess of the sixth inning. Slegers had strung together five scoreless innings prior to Thursday's meltdown. The 28-year-old has a 6.30 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and 19:10 K:BB across 20 innings this year, mainly in a low-leverage role. He's added a hold and two blown saves in 23 outings.
Slegers (2-1) allowed two earned runs on one hit and one walk while recording just one out, taking the loss against the Astros on Tuesday.
Slegers entered a tie game in the eighth inning Tuesday and only retired one of the three batters he faced. Both runners he was responsible for ended up scoring on a three-run homer by Yuli Gurriel. Slegers has now walked at least one batter in five straight relief appearances. This is a new issue for the 27-year-old, as he didn't allow a single walk in his first 11 appearances this season. In the month of May, he's issued seven walks while only striking out two.
Slegers (2-0) pitched 1.1 scoreless innings, walking two batters en route to earn the win over the Dodgers on Sunday.
Slegers picked up his second win of the season after preserving the 2-1 lead into the sixth inning. The 28-year-old has a 3.77 ERA and 1.60 WHIP through 14.1 innings. He is not a high-strikeout candidate, with a 7.5 K/9. In addition, he's run into trouble recently, walking six batters in his last 4.1 innings of relief.
Slegers (1-0) got the win in Friday's 10-3 victory over the Twins, allowing one run on three hits while registering two outs.
Slegers entered the game in the sixth inning with two runners on base and one out on the board. The Twins would notch three straight hits off Slegers, who allowed three runs to score and lost the lead in the process before finishing the inning. The 28-year-old would get some help from his offense in the bottom of the sixth innings as the Angels immediately scored to regain the lead and set Slegers up with the win. On the season, the righty has a 4.26 ERA and has yet to walk a batter across seven appearances.
Slegers has earned a spot in the Angels' bullpen, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Slegers missed much of camp with a back issue and tossed only six innings in Cactus League play, but he showed enough to nail down the team's final bullpen spot. The right-hander will likely begin the season in a low-leverage role but could certainly move up in the pecking order given the shakiness of the Angels' bullpen behind closer Raisel Iglesias.
Slegers (back) tossed 1.2 scoreless innings against San Diego in Saturday's Cactus League contest and is now expected to open the season on the active roster, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Slegers has dealt with back spasms this spring and was recently thought to be out of the picture for Opening Day, but the right-hander has returned to the mound and now seems likely to be in the bullpen for the Angels' season-opening series against the White Sox. He posted a 3.46 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with Tampa Bay in 2020 and has pitched well overall this spring, hurling five scoreless innings and registering a 3:0 K:BB.
Slegers is still experiencing back spasms and is expected to open the season on the injured list, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Slegers has been hampered by the back issue for much of the spring and has thrown only 2.1 Cactus League innings. It appears highly unlikely that he'll be able to be game-ready by Opening Day.
Slegers (back) felt better Friday, according to coach Joe Maddon, but it's uncertain whether he'll be ready by Opening Day, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Slegers has been out since experiencing back spasms in early March, and he had a throwing session canceled Thursday due to tightness. With less than two weeks to go until Opening Day, that leaves the right-hander's status in serious doubt. Maddon indicated Friday that he doesn't know when Slegers will be back on the mound, but he hasn't ruled out the reliever from opening the season on the big-league roster just yet, stating, "Let's give it a brief period of time here and see where he's at."
Slegers (back) was slated to pitch Thursday but was unable to do so after dealing with some tightness, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Slegers has been slowed due to back spasms this spring but has been playing catch over the past week. It's unclear whether the right-hander's tightness will force him to miss multiple throwing sessions. Whether Slegers will be available to begin the regular season remains to be seen.
Slegers (back) has started playing catch, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
He battled back spasms early in camp but has increased his activity and could be nearing game action. Slegers is looking to make the club as a low-leverage reliever.
Slegers is battling back spasms and is considered day-to-day, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Slegers should be able to get back on the mound soon, giving him enough time to build up for Opening Day. He stands a good chance of breaking camp in the big-league bullpen after posting a 3.46 ERA in 26 innings for the Rays last season.
Slegers is expected to come out of the bullpen for the Angels this season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Slegers was acquired in a trade with Tampa Bay in February following a solid 2020 campaign in which he ranked in the 92nd percentile for hard-hit rate leaguewide, per Statcast. The 28-year-old has started in six of his 20 appearances in his big-league career, but the Angels apparently favor his ability out of the bullpen. Slegers has only 34 strikeouts across 58 career innings, so his ability to continue to limit hard contact will be a key to his success in Los Angeles.
Slegers was traded from Tampa Bay to Los Angeles on Monday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Slegers appeared in 11 games for the Rays in 2020, posting a 3.46 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with a 19:5 K:BB across 26 innings (one start). The right-hander had a tendency to bounce between the majors and the minors during his time in Tampa Bay, so he'll set his sights on sticking in the big leagues with his new squad heading into the 2021 campaign.
Slegers will not be on the Rays' roster for the World Series, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Slegers has pitched five innings in the postseason, allowing one run. He recorded a 3.46 ERA in 26 innings during the regular season. Brett Phillips and Ryan Sherriff will join the roster, with Slegers and Jose Alvarado leaving.
Slegers allowed one run on four hits while striking out a batter across three innings as he earned the save against the Phillies on Saturday.
Slegers allowed three straight singles upon entering the game in the seventh. However, the 28-year-old yielded only one run as he converted his second save of the season while shutting the door on the Phillies' 2020 playoff aspirations. Slegers owns a 3.46 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and a 19:5 K:BB across 26 innings and should be a reliable arm out of the bullpen for the playoffs.
