  1. For as much fun as the Angels have had winning in their last at-bat, they certainly enjoyed doing it the easier way on Friday night. Andrew Heaney pitched six scoreless innings and Shohei Ohtani and Jared Walsh hit home runs in the Angels’ 7-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin, Fla. “I’m happy that I pitched well enough and the guys obviously are scoring runs, so we can finally have a little bit of a comfortable game today,” Heaney said. “Not the nail biters we’ve been playing.” The Angels improved to 6-2, matching the best start in franchise history. They had scored the winning
  2. Angels manager Joe Maddon conceded that Shohei Ohtani’s blister issue could be a recurring problem. That’s what they’re trying to avoid. “Once a pitcher has that, the tendency is that it continues to come back,” Maddon said on Friday before the Angels’ game against the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin, Fla. “I don’t know what the treatment is specifically that they have a lot of confidence in, but they do. So we’ll see. … “I want to believe that by taking care of it now that later on in the year it’s not going to not pop up again, just based on prevention.” Ohtani was scheduled to pitch this w
  3. Shohei Ohtani will not start on the mound this weekend because he’s dealing with a blister, so his next outing will be pushed back to sometime next week, Manager Joe Maddon said on Thursday night. Ohtani’s normal turn in the rotation would have been on Sunday, but his next start is now to be determined based on the healing of the blister. “It’s gotten a lot better,” Maddon said. “That’s why we’re holding him back. We want this to be totally well.” Ohtani pitched with a blister during his final exhibition start against the Dodgers, and he allowed seven runs. It did not seem to be an issue wh
  4. David Fletcher dropped a bloop single – his specialty – into center field in the 11th inning, driving in the tie-breaking runs in the Angels’ 7-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night in Dunedin, Fla. The Blue Jays are playing their home games at the start of the season at their spring training ballpark because of COVID-19 travel restrictions between the United States and Canada. The teams each failed to drive in the lead runner placed at second base in the 10th. In the 11th, the Angels had runners at second and third when Fletcher came to the plate, and he flared a soft pop i
  5. So far, so good for Max Stassi. While it’s certainly too early to say if the offensive adjustments that led to Stassi’s breakout last season will translate into a similar performance over a full season this year, the first week was encouraging. Stassi was 4 for 11 with a home run and two walks, starting four of the Angels’ first six games. “I feel great,” Stassi said Thursday from Dunedin, Fla., where the Angels are playing the Toronto Blue Jays this weekend. “I’m just trying to continue where I left off last year. I haven’t really changed a whole lot. It’s just kind of reminding my approac

  7. Steve Cishek vividly remembers the first time that Joe Maddon summoned him from the Chicago Cubs’ bullpen. “I was in the game in the fourth inning, and it completely took me by surprise,” Cishek recalled during his first week reunited with Maddon as a member of the Angels’ bullpen. “After that, I was like ‘All right, I’m going to be ready to go in the third.’ That just triggered me to be ready, because you never know.” Cishek said as he got to know Maddon with the Cubs in 2018, he became better at understanding the patterns, and it made life more predictable. Cishek and the other seven Ange
  8. The All-Star Game never knew it was so important. Except for sponsors and incentive clauses, it would have little reason to live. In 2002 the managers were so engaged that they ran out of pitchers. Take away Pedro Martinez’s magic night in Fenway Park, and Ichiro Suzuki’s inside-the-park home run in San Francisco, and what do you really remember? But now baseball has moved the game from Atlanta to Denver because of Georgia’s new election regulations, and the All-Star Game is suddenly bigger than Dr. Seuss. Republicans are threatening to lift baseball’s antitrust exemption (and Democrats welc
  9. ANAHEIM ― At 6-foot-10, Angels pitcher Aaron Slegers is an inch shorter than the tallest player in major league history. Among active big leaguers, he’s first in height, first in the alphabet and, perhaps surprisingly, far from the hardest thrower in the game. Slegers’ fastball regularly hits 91-92 mph on the radar gun. He sometimes begins at-bats by throwing a slider or a changeup in the mid-80s. The right-hander is averse to strikeouts by today’s standards, averaging fewer than one an inning across 23 career appearances. He prefers to rely on the Angels’ defense to provide most of his outs,

  11. Mike Scioscia has his next managing gig lined up, far from the Angel Stadium dugout he roamed for 19 years. Scioscia was announced Tuesday as the next manager of USA Baseball, which will compete for a berth in the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer. The USA roster is expected to feature a broad range of professionals when its Olympic quest begins in June with a qualifying tournament in Florida. A trip to Tokyo is not assured. The U.S. must place first or second in a pool-play group with the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and Nicaragua. Canada, Colombia, Cuba, and Venezuela comprise the other

  14. The talk from Major League Baseball on the opening weekend of the 2021 regular season was centered around the greatness of their hitting and pitching superstar, Shohei Ohtani of Oshu, Japan. On Sunday night in the Angels’ 7-4 win over the Chicago White Sox, Ohtani became the first ever American League starting pitcher since the designated hitter rule was instituted in 1973, to hit a home run in a game. Ohtani’s one-out first-inning blast has been the talk of Major League Baseball. According to ESPN, the exit velocity of his blast was 115.2 miles per hour, the hardest home run hit so far this
