Sandoval (3-5) took the loss against Oakland on Friday, allowing one run on four hits and six walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out six.
Considering the left-hander's wildness -- Sandoval's six walks were a season high -- he was fortunate to emerge from his outing having allowed only one run. He did a good job of limiting the damage against him by surrendering no extra-base hits and keeping Athletics hitters on their toes with 20 swinging strikes. Sandoval threw a season-high 115 pitches in the outing, and he continues to justify his spot in the Angels' rotation. He'll carry a 3.38 ERA into his next start, which is tentatively lined up to take place at Texas next Thursday.
Sandoval (3-4) came within inches of a no-hitter Saturday night, allowing one earned run on one hit and and one walk with 13 strikeouts over 8.2 innings in a 2-1 win over the Twins.
Sandoval took a no-hitter into the ninth and recorded the first out of the inning before Brent Rooker preserved the Twins' dignity with a double. Sandoval got one more out before Joe Maddon denied him the opportunity to go for a complete game. The only run charged to the Californian came when Rooker scored on a Josh Donaldson double yielded by Raisel Iglesias. Although Sandoval may not have made history, this was still an incredible pitching performance by the left-hander. After striking out just nine batters in his first three starts this season, the 24-year-old has struck out 28 in his last three trips to the bump, including a career-high 13 on Saturday night.
Sandoval (2-4) took the loss Sunday against Seattle, allowing six runs (four earned) on six hits and a walk with nine strikeouts.
The 24-year-old went seven innings and threw 114 pitches, both career highs, but was undone by a pair of home runs, including a three-run shot by Ty France in the fifth inning that broke the game open. Sandoval has flashed dominant stuff in 2021 and has fanned 51 hitters over his last seven starts dating back to the start of June. He owns a 3.86 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with a 68:25 K:BB across 63 innings overall this season.
Sandoval (2-3) took the loss against Seattle on Saturday despite allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over seven innings. He struck out six.
The bad news is that Sandoval took the loss despite the strong effort. The good news is that he continues to shine as a starter, logging a season-high seven innings and 114 pitches in the contest. The southpaw has allowed three or fewer runs while pitching at least five innings in each of his past eight outings dating back to May 22. Over that span, he has posted a 3.22 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 49:18 K:BB across 44.2 frames. Those numbers make him a viable fantasy asset in nearly all formats.
Sandoval allowed two runs on two hits and five walks while striking out seven over five innings Sunday against the Orioles. He did not factor into the decision.
Sandoval was lucky to surrender only two runs after walking a season-high five batters Sunday. Three of his walks came in the first inning but he was able to strike out DJ Stewart to get out of trouble. Both runs against him came in the sixth inning. Austin Hays led off with a single and then Sandoval walked Trey Mancini which put an end to his day. Both runners would end up scoring off the bat of Ramon Urias as part of a four-run inning for the Orioles. The 24-year-old owns a 3.86 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 53:22 K:BB over 49 innings and lines up for a start in Seattle next weekend.
Sandoval allowed three runs on four hits and two walks over five innings in Sunday's win over the Rays. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.
Sandoval cruised through four innings without allowing a hit before Brandon Lowe knocked a solo homer off him in the fifth. He was then charged with two runs in the sixth after Mike Mayers gave up a three-run shot to Ji-Man Choi. After totaling just 11.1 innings through his first four outings, the 6-foot-3 southpaw has gone at least five innings in each of his last six appearances. He's sporting a 3.89 ERA and a 46:17 K:BB through 44 innings. Sandoval is projected to face Baltimore at home next week.
Sandoval (2-2) allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out nine in 5.2 innings, earning the win Saturday versus Detroit.
Sandoval got into a bit of trouble in the sixth inning, and the southpaw was pulled with two outs in the frame as Detroit had a sequence of four right-handed hitters due up. He has yet to allow more than two earned runs in a start this season. The southpaw has a 3.69 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 40:15 K:BB across 39 innings. He's now started his last six appearances -- it appears Sandoval has solidified a spot in the rotation. He projects to face Tampa Bay next weekend.
Sandoval (1-2) got the win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday after allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings.
Sandoval put together his second straight quality start and actually picked up the win as opposed to his last time out. He allowed the Diamondbacks to get on the board in the fourth on an RBI single by Pavin Smith and then was eventually pulled after walking two batters to begin the seventh, one of which would come around to score for his second earned run of the day. His changeup was super effective, as he generated 10 of his 13 whiffs with the offspeed pitch. The 24-year-old now owns a 3.51 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 31:13 K:BB over 33.1 innings and has a another favorable matchup coming up this week against the Tigers.
Sandoval (0-2) allowed three earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out 10 across six innings, taking the loss Sunday to the Mariners.
Sandoval surrendered a home run by Donovan Walton to lead off the third inning. Per Sarah Langs of MLB.com, he induced 32 swinging strikes in the contest -- the most by any Angels pitcher in a single game since the pitch-tracking era began in 2008. Prior to his 10-strikeout performance, Sandoval totaled four punchouts only twice. The 24-year-old has a 3.95 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP with 27 strikeouts in 27.1 innings. He has posted a quality start in his last three outings. The Angels have rocked a six-man rotation at times and Sandoval has been in and out of the rotation.
Sandoval is listed as the Angels' starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
All signs were pointing toward Sandoval taking the ball Sunday, with manager Joe Maddon announcing earlier in the week that he would replace Jose Quintana (shoulder) in the rotation for the time being. Now he's officially slated to take the hill for the series finale. The southpaw has made six major-league appearances (three starts) this season, posting a 3.80 ERA to go along with a 17:10 K:BB across 21.1 innings.
Manager Joe Maddon said Sandoval would join the Angels rotation after Jose Quintana (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Sandoval has previously made three starts for Los Angeles this season, including one last Thursday against Oakland. The young southpaw turned in the best outing of his young career versus the Athletics, tossing five shutout innings while allowing seven baserunners and striking out four. The Angels haven't outlined their full pitching schedule for the upcoming week, but Sandoval will presumably make his next start during the Angels' four-game series versus Seattle over the weekend.
Sandoval allowed five hits and two walks with four strikeouts over five shutout innings in Thursday's loss to Oakland. He did not factor in the decision.
Sandoval was called upon for a spot start after Shohei Ohtani experienced transportation issues that would have affected his usual game-day routine. The 24-year-old Sandoval performed excellently on short notice, but Oakland's Chris Bassitt was better with a two-hit shutout Thursday. Through six games (three starts), Sandoval has a 3.80 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 17:10 K:BB across 21.1 innings. He'll likely fill a multi-inning relief role going forward.
Sandoval will replace Shohei Ohtani as the starting pitcher for Thursday's game against the Athletics, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Registerreports.
Ohtani was scratched from the start a little over an hour before the game was set to begin. The decision is reportedly not injury related, so this may turn out to be only a spot start for Sandoval. Through 16.1 innings this season, he has posted a 4.96 ERA and 1.47 WHIP with a 13:8 K:BB.
Sandoval (0-1) went five innings and took the loss in Saturday's 6-2 defeat to Oakland, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts.
Both of Sandoval's runs allowed came at the expense of Mark Canha, but otherwise the righty performed admirably. The five innings was his longest outing of the season and he's allowed two runs or less in four of five outings, though a 4.96 ERA shows there's room for growth.
Sandoval is starting Saturday's game against the Athletics.
The 24-year-old southpaw is a starter by trade, but he has also worked out of the bullpen at times for the Angels over the last three seasons. Through 63.2 career innings as a big-league starter, Sandoval has a 5.80 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 54:29 K:BB -- his 4.18 ERA and 31 strikeouts in 23.2 innings as a reliever are more promising. The Angels have been working with a six-man rotation all season, and Sandoval represents a seventh starting option, so it is unclear if this outing will just buy everyone else some extra rest or if he has a shot at displacing someone else in the rotation.
Sandoval allowed two runs on six hits and a walk over four innings in Monday's win over Cleveland. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision.
Sandoval got off to a rough start, serving up a solo homer to Cesar Hernandez on the first pitch of the game. He later coughed up an RBI single to Jose Ramirez in the third. The 6-foot-3 southpaw is sporting a 5.56 ERA across 11.1 frames this season. Sandoval could move back to the bullpen before he gets another chance at starting.
Sandoval will start for the Angels against Cleveland on Monday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
The southpaw will take the ball as a starter for the first time in 2021 with Alex Cobb still battling a blister issue. Andrew Heaney and Shohei Ohtani will follow Sandoval on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. Sandoval's longest outing in the majors this year is 3.1 innings, so it's unlikely that he'll factor into the decision Monday.
Sandoval pitched the final 3.1 innings of the game Friday to earn the save, allowing one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out three in a win over the Dodgers.
It's his first save of the season. Sandoval's only run allowed came on a ninth-inning home run by Mookie Betts. The 24-year-old has worked multiple innings in two appearances since getting called up May 3.
Sandoval was recalled Monday.
Sandoval will take the roster spot of Mike Mayers, who was placed on the injured list Monday for an unspecified reason. Sandoval has yet to see any big-league action this season after failing to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster.
Sandoval was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake by the Angels on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old was competing for a bullpen spot but was unable to show enough during spring training to earn the role. Sandoval had a 5.65 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 33:12 K:BB over 36.2 innings last season for the Angels.
