Top Angels News

  • Angels' Patrick Sandoval: Walk issues persist

    Sandoval (3-8) allowed two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four in five innings, taking the loss Friday versus the Twins.

    The Angels' offense mustered just seven baserunners, giving Sandoval no run support. He still had his own problems, walking a tied-for-season-high four batters for the second start in a row and the fourth time in 19 outings this year. He also gave up a two-run home run to Gilberto Celestino in the second inning. Sandoval has a decent 3.42 ERA, but his 1.49 WHIP and 106:49 K:BB through 100 innings this year are concerning marks. The lefty has gone 12 straight starts without a win, a streak he'll try to snap in a projected road start in Detroit next week.

  • Angels' Matt Duffy: Nearing rehab assignment

    Duffy (back) will begin a rehab assignment next week, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Duffy has been out with lower-back spasms since late June. His late-July move to the 60-day injured list means he can't return until near the end of August, so his rehab assignment won't be a particularly brief one.

  • Angels' Michael Lorenzen: Throwing bullpens

    Lorenzen (shoulder) has been throwing bullpen sessions without issues, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Lorenzen has been out with a shoulder strain since early July, and his placement on the 60-day injured list last week means he'll be ineligible to return before early September. He doesn't appear to be advanced enough in his rehab to beat that date even if he was eligible to do so, but it's a positive that he's taking steps in the right direction.

  • Angels' Archie Bradley: May not return this year

    Bradley (elbow) has yet to start throwing and may not make it back this season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Bradley has been out with a broken elbow since late June. Reports from earlier this week indicated he was nearly ready to begin a throwing program, but that still hasn't happened. It's unclear if there's been a setback or if the Angels have simply decided not to rush him in a lost season.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Plays catch on field

    Trout (ribs) played catch on the field Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    There were fears that Trout would be done for the year after reports emerged in late July that the star outfielder was dealing with a rare back condition. He's been adamant that he'll return, however, and that optimism seems to be backed up by his recent activities. He advanced to tee work Monday and has also hit soft toss in the cage. He'll hit on the field Saturday, per Fletcher.

  • Angels' Magneuris Sierra: On bench Friday

    Sierra isn't starting Friday against the Twins, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Sierra went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI, two steals and a strikeout Wednesday against the Athletics but will be held out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games. Steven Duggar is starting in center field and batting ninth.

  • Angels' Phil Gosselin: Takes seat Friday

    Gosselin isn't starting Friday against the Twins, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Gosselin has gone 1-for-13 with a strikeout over the last five matchups and will be out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games. Josh Rojas is starting at the hot corner and batting eighth.

  • Angels' Jaime Barria: Works out of bullpen

    Barria moved to 2-2 on the season after he was credited with the win during his three-inning relief appearance in Wednesday's 5-4 victory over the Athletics in 12 innings. He allowed an unearned run on one hit and no walks while striking out one.

    In his last time on the mound Saturday in Seattle, Barria worked 4.2 innings as a starter for the first game of a doubleheader. Though the Angels still had a vacancy in their rotation this week, interim manager Phil Nevin opted to give Touki Toussaint the start, while Barria was available in the bullpen. Barria was able to deliver a strong showing in long relief, and Toussaint (six strikeouts over five shutout innings) likely performed well enough to stick around as the Angels' No. 6 starter for at least one more turn through the rotation.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Draws another start

    Davidson is scheduled to start Sunday's home game against the Twins, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Despite issuing five walks and allowing six earned runs over four innings in his Angels debut last weekend in Seattle, Davidson will receive a second turn through the rotation. Even dating back to his time with Atlanta earlier this season, Davidson has struggled to consistently find the strike zone, as he posted a 17.6 percent walk rate in 15.1 innings over his other four appearances in the majors prior to being dealt to the Angels at the trade deadline. Until he shows improved control, the left-hander will be difficult to trust as a streaming option in the majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Slugs three-run homer

    Rengifo went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run Wednesday against the Athletics.

    Rengifo took Sam Moll yard in the sixth inning for his sixth homer of the season. He has quietly been productive since July 10, homering twice with 14 RBI and 11 runs scored in 26 games. For the season, Rengifo has posted a respectable 105 wRC+ and .316 wOBA across 300 plate appearances.

  • Angels' Magneuris Sierra: Drives in two, swipes two bags

    Sierra went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two stolen bases Wednesday against the Athletics.

    Sierra has become a regular in the Angels' lineup, having started seven of the team's 11 games since Aug. 1. Prior to Wednesday's big game, he hadn't done much with the opportunity by hitting only .217 with three runs scored in 24 plate appearances in that span. While he isn't a good bet to provide well-rounded production, Sierra has managed four stolen bases across 16 games on the season.

  • Angels' Touki Toussaint: Five shutout innings

    Toussaint allowed two hits and two walks while striking out six across five scoreless innings Wednesday against the Athletics. He did not factor into the decision.

    Toussaint has thrown at least four innings in each of his last two outings, but Wednesday marked his first official start. He took advantage of the opportunity, holding the Athletics to only two singles and two walks while generating nine swinging strikes on 71 total pitches. Toussaint has walked nine batters across 13.1 innings in the big leagues this season, but he has otherwise made a strong case to stick in the Angels' rotation moving forward.

  • Angels' David Fletcher: Getting look as leadoff hitter

    Fletcher will start at second base and bat leadoff in Wednesday's game against the Athletics.

    Fletcher will stick atop the lineup for the third consecutive contest, with the Angels facing off against one right-hander (James Kaprielian) and two lefties (Cole Irvin and JP Sears) during that stretch. Though he'll be occupying second base Wednesday, Fletcher looks like he could see more playing time down the stretch at shortstop, a position in which the Angels have struggled to extract production from Andrew Velazquez. Fletcher could be a decent source of batting average, runs and steals if he ends up getting an extended run as the Angels' table setter.

  • Angels' Jared Walsh: Riding pine Wednesday

    Walsh isn't starting Wednesday against the Athletics, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Walsh is getting a day off after he went 0-for-8 with three strikeouts over the last two games. Phil Gosselin will take over at first base and bat eighth.

  • Angels' Touki Toussaint: Getting start Wednesday

    Toussaint is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    The Angels have yet to permanently settle on a sixth starter, but Toussaint will get the latest chance to stake his claim to the role after the Halos optioned Janson Junk to Triple-A Salt Lake over the weekend. Los Angeles also recently deployed a pairing of Jaime Barria and Mike Mayers in a tandem start last weekend, and either of those two pitchers could get a look in the rotation at some point if Toussaint isn't able to capitalize on Wednesday's start. Toussaint has worked in long relief in both of his first two outings with the Angels, covering 8.1 innings in total and striking out nine while allowing four earned runs on four hits and seven walks.
