  1. THE GAME: Justin Upton hit two of the Angels’ five home runs in a 10-9 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers in a seven-inning game on Monday afternoon at American Family Fields in Phoenix. PITCHING REPORT: Left-hander Andrew Heaney became the first Angels pitcher this spring to re-enter a game, taking advantage of a special rule this spring. He recorded just one out on 23 pitches in the first, so the Angels pulled him. Heaney then came back to continue his outing in the second. He did not allow any runs in the second or third, each time escaping with the help of slick double plays. “I think in the f
  2. TEMPE, Ariz. — In the short time that Patrick Sandoval has been in the big leagues, he’s shown both impressive stuff and worrisome inconsistency. He and Joe Maddon both believe they know exactly what separates one from the other. “I know my stuff is more than good enough to compete in the big leagues,” the Angels’ left-hander said. “I just have to keep myself in check and let my stuff do the work, not my emotions.” Maddon compared Sandoval to Jon Lester and James Shields in the sense that both of them also had troubles early in their careers when their emotions on the mound were out of cont

  5. THE GAME: The Angels beat the Seattle Mariners, 6-2, in a six-inning Cactus League game on Sunday at Tempe Diablo Stadium. PITCHING REPORT: Right-hander Jaime Barria gave up a home run to Ty France, but he retired the other six batters he faced in his two-inning outing. Barria is the pitcher most likely to join the rotation if any of the top six starters get hurt. Otherwise, he figures to be in the bullpen because he’s out of options, although that could change based with an arbiter’s ruling this month. The issue is whether the shortened 2020 season counts as a “full season” in terms of the o
  6. <p>TEMPE, Ariz. — Taylor Ward has gone from having no position to having five of them.</p><p>Ward was in the Angels starting lineup at catcher for Sunday’s game, the first time he started a big league exhibition behind the plate since before the Angels moved him off the position prior to the 2018 season.</p><p>It’s a sign that the club has shown increasing confidence in him behind the plate, as well as at first base and all three outfield positions.</p><p>Manager Joe Maddon said before Sunday’s game that Ward has made improvements in the outfield and h
  7. THE GAME: Jo Adell hit a two-run homer in the Angels’ 8-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies in a seven-inning Cactus League game Saturday at Tempe Diablo Stadium. PITCHING REPORT: LHP José Quintana struck out four in two scoreless, hitless innings in his second outing of the spring. Quintana needed just 32 pitches, so he went down to the bullpen to throw more after he was done. “I think my rhythm was better and I got outs quickly,” Quintana said. “It feels great. My confidence is going up.” Quintana’s fastball was 92-94 mph, compared with 91.1 he averaged last season. “The ball was jumping,” Quint

  9. TEMPE, Ariz. — Max Stassi said it used to take him 30 to 40 minutes just to loosen up his hips so he could handle all the squatting required to be a catcher. Not any more. Over the past two offseasons, Stassi has undergone a pair of procedures to repair genetic conditions in each of his hips. He compared it to having a bone spur. “It’s night and day better,” he said on Saturday. “I’ve got so much more range of motion there. It feels good to get into the squat.” Because he was rehabbing, Stassi came into camp slightly behind the other catchers. He’s done all the work on the side, but won’t
  10. Dodger Stadium and Angel Stadium will re-open to fans on April 1, just in time for Opening Day of the 2021 regular season, the California Department of Public Health announced Friday. How many fans will be allowed through the gates? Like a baseball player nursing a mild injury, capacity is considered “day-to-day.” If the rate of new coronavirus cases does not change between now and each team’s home opener, Angel Stadium and Dodger Stadium will be able to admit up to 100 fans for their first regular-season games. The Angels host the Chicago White Sox on April 1. The Dodgers host the Washingto
  11. THE GAME: Luis Rengifo, Justin Upton and Jose Rojas hit homers in the Angels’ 7-3 victory over the Oakland A’s on Friday afternoon in a seven-inning game at Hohokam Park in Mesa. PITCHING REPORT: RHP Shohei Ohtani struck out five and allowed one run in 1 2/3 innings. Ohtani’s fastball was 96-100 mph. … LHP Patrick Sandoval walked the bases loaded in his first inning, but got out of it with a double play. He tacked on a perfect second inning. He had three strikeouts in his outing. Sandoval has not allowed a run in three innings this spring. … RHP Jesse Chavez pitched in his first game of the s
  12. MESA, Ariz. — For the first time in more than 1,000 days, Shohei Ohtani walked off a big league mound following what had to be qualified as a successful outing. Since he first hurt his elbow in June 2018, Ohtani had pitched in three big league games and none of them ended well. He was hurt in two and couldn’t get an out in the third. Although this one was just a spring training game, the fact that Ohtani reached his prescribed pitch count, had his velocity where it should be and struck out half the batters he faced all made it a good day for Ohtani and the Angels. Facing the Oakland A’s in
  13. THE GAME: The Angels allowed at least one run in the first six innings in a 9-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz. PITCHING REPORT: Right-hander Griffin Canning struck out five in two innings, whiffing Eduardo Escobar on a curveball and Steven Vogt on a fastball. He also got all three hitters to take curves for called third strikes in the second inning. “They’re not seeing it very well,” Canning said. “That’s encouraging. I used to get a lot more strikeouts looking in college, but it’s encouraging for sure.” In between the strikeouts, Cannin

  15. TEMPE, Ariz. — The last two times that Chris Rodriguez pitched in games with fans in the stands, his motivations for success were quite different. Back in April 2019, pitching for Class-A Inland Empire, Rodriguez said he simply wanted to get quick outs because that was the best way to get off the mound and relieve the pain of what felt like a knife sticking in his back. On Tuesday night, nearly 20 months later and with two screws in his back, Rodriguez unleashed all of that emotion and frustration of years of pain and showed the Angels and their fans what they’d been missing. “It was a huge
