Let’s forget this game happened

Saturday night was one for the Angels to forget all across the board. Their offense scored only one run on six hits, their defense had three errors and their pitching staff allowed 15 runs.

Things got ugly quickly as the Blue Jays jumped out early and scored seven runs in the second inning. Jose Quintana got roughed up badly, allowing seven runs to score in 1 2?3 innings. He also issued four walks as well.

It all...

The Angels call up Jaime Barria

Early this morning, I had an update on Dexter Fowler, saying it looked as if he wouldn’t be going on the Injured List. Following the game, manager Joe Maddon said that he avoided a major injury and there was a chance he wouldn’t miss much time.

However, the club decided to place him on the 10-day IL on Saturday due to his knee sprain from Friday.

Instead of calling up another outfielder, the Angels have opted to...

The Angels move to 6-2 on the season

The Angels just continue to win, as their 7-1 victory over the Blue Jays on Friday put them at 6-2 on the young season.

The offense was led by Shohei Ohtani, who finished the game with four runs driven in. He stepped up to the plate in the second with the bases loaded. On a 1-2 pitch, Ohtani doubled to center, bringing in all three runs to give the Halos a 4-0 lead.

His next at bat came in the fifth inning, when he led...

He was expected to pitch on Sunday

Following Thursday night’s win over the Blue Jays, Angels manager Joe Maddon told reporters that Shohei Ohtani will miss his next start on Sunday due to his lingering blister issue.

“It’ll be next week probably,” Maddon said. “He’s nursing the blister. It’s gotten a lot better. That’s what’s holding him back. We want this to be well and not become an issue.”

As he seems to always do for the Angels, David Fletcher delivered in the clutch. With runners on second and third with two outs in the 11th inning, Fletcher singled in both runners, putting LA on top 7-5, which ultimately would be the final score of the game.

Luke Bard out for season with hip injury

Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

He’ll be out for 6-8 months

The pitching staff took a bit of a hit on Thursday afternoon, as RHP Luke Bard will undergo season-ending hip surgery.

Last week, the 30-year-old was placed on the 60-day Injured List, meaning he’d be out through at least June. Now, it looks as if Bard has chosen to undergo surgery on his hip, ending his season.

His recovery time is expected to be between six and eight months, so he should be ready for next season.
