The latest All-Star voting update dropped on Monday, and there aren’t really any drastic changes to the results. Mike Trout still is the leading vote-getter among American League outfielders and Shohei Ohtani still leads all Designated Hitters.

As a reminder, the voting is different than in years past. The top three vote-getters at each position will advance to the next stage of voting, with the top nine...

3-game win streak comes to an end in finale with Detroit

Raisel Iglesias retired Detroit in order in the ninth inning, but started the 10th inning with an infield single and walk which, combined with the...

Angels’ winning streak comes to an end

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

All good things must come to an end

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. The Angels’ seven-game winning streak was snapped on Monday night, as they fell 8-5 to the Athletics.

This game got out of reach fairly early, as Oakland had a 7-1 lead after the third inning. After having a solid stretch of starts recently, things just really fell apart for Dylan Bundy early in the game. He was pulled after only 2 1?3 innings and allowed seven runs to...

The Angels are one of the hottest teams in baseball

Don’t look now, but the Angels are playing like the hottest team in baseball. They’ve swept two consecutive series, have won six in a row and eight of their last nine games. Probably their best game of that stretch came on Sunday afternoon in their 10-3 victory over the D-Backs.

This game looked over pretty early on. The Angels jumped on the board right away, as they scored two...

The Angels made a small roster move on Sunday morning, as the team announced they claimed infielder Jack Mayfield off waivers from the Seattle Mariners. They’ll be sending him to Triple-A Salt Lake.

If the name sounds familiar, well... it’s because he was with the Angels earlier in the season. The team designated Mayfield for assignment back on April 24. He was claimed off waivers by the Mariners a few days...

He was DFA’d early in the week

After being designated for assignment earlier in the week, Hunter Strickland was traded o the Brewers for cash considerations.

After being really good for the Rays, Strickland really struggled while with the Angels. In 6 1?3 innings, he allowed nine runs to score on 11 hits. He also walked as many batters (4) as he had strikeouts. Overall, it just wasn’t a great experience.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

He struck out eight and had two hits

The Angels avoided losing a heartbreaker on Friday night, as they defeated the D-Backs in extras, 6-5. LA was one strike away from winning in the ninth, but a homer from Eduardo Escobar tied it up.

Luckily the Halos were able to put a run on the board in the 10th and hold Arizona in the bottom half of the inning, leaving with the crucial victory. For the Angels, this is now their fourth consecutive victory and they’ve...
