Angels' Shohei Ohtani: Successful sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ohtani (elbow) threw 29 pitches in a simulated game Monday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

He faced both left-handed and right-handed hitters and the Angels said everything went well. This was a big step, as he had previously been throwing bullpen sessions. He continues to work toward a potential return to the mound in September. The next step could be a lengthier sim game or a rehab assignment.

Angels' Odrisamer Despaigne: Receiving another start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despaigne is listed as the Angels' probable starter for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Despaigne was roughed up in his Angels debut over the weekend, letting in five runs on seven hits and a walk in a loss to the Rangers. Despite the unimpressive showing along with his mediocre numbers over 44 career big-league starts, Despaigne will stick in the rotation for another turn with the Angels lacking in healthy alternatives who possess 40-man roster spots. Despaigne will likely shift to the bullpen or head to Triple-A Salt Lake once two of Tyler Skaggs (groin), Nick Tropeano (shoulder), Matt Shoemaker (forearm) or Shohei Ohtani (elbow) are cleared to rejoin the rotation.

Angels' Jaime Barria: Strikes out five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barria allowed one earned run on seven hits and one walk while striking out five across five innings Sunday against the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision.

Despite allowing eight baserunners, Barria limited the damage by allowing only one extra-base hit. He generated an impressive 14 swinging strikes and induced 10 of his 15 outs via either groundball or strikeout. Limiting home runs has been key for Barria, and in his four August starts he has allowed only one home run across 20.2 innings, which has resulted in him surrendering only five earned runs.

Angels' Justin Upton: Withheld from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rangers.

Upton had started each of the Angels' previous 12 games, hitting .354 while mashing five home runs and chipping in two steals over that stretch. The Angels are effectively out of the running for a playoff spot, but Upton should garner regular playing time down the stretch after inking a five-year, $106 million deal with the club last winter. Kaleb Cowart will spell Upton in left field in the series finale.

Angels' Eric Young Jr.: Raps three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young went 3-for-5 with a triple and a pair of runs scored in Saturday's victory over the Rangers.

Young has been seeing everyday playing time in center with Mike Trout (personal) away from the team. The latter isn't expected to return until Aug. 24 at the earliest, allowing Young to maintain short-term value as a stolen-base threat (four steals over last 10 starts).
