  2. The real winner of the Angels’ first road trip of 2021: taxi drivers. Outfielder Juan Lagares (strained left calf) and catcher Max Stassi (sprained left thumb) were placed on the 10-day injured list prior to Tuesday’s game against the Royals. They were replaced by two taxi squad players, catcher Anthony Bemboom and outfielder Jon Jay. With one game still to play in Kansas City, every player who began the road trip on the Angels’ taxi squad will have been added to their active roster. That includes pitchers Ben Rowen and Jaime Barria, and infielder Jack Mayfield. To make room for Jay, who wa

  6. Anthony Rendon’s injury is opening an opportunity for José Rojas. Rendon was placed on the injured list on Monday with a strained left groin, an injury he suffered on a throw late in Saturday night’s game against Toronto. “We’re thinking hopefully about 10 days, but I never want to put a time limit on these things,” Manager Joe Maddon said before Monday’s game in Kansas City. “Let’s let it play out and see where it goes.” The Angels recalled utility infielder Jack Mayfield to take Rendon’s spot on the roster, but Maddon said he envisions Rojas getting the bulk of the starts at third.

  7. Los Angeles Angels outfielder Dexter Fowler of Atlanta, GA is out for the remainder of the 2021 Major League Baseball regular season. The former National League All-Star tore his anterior cruciate ligament while running into second base against the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday according to Alden Gonzalez of ESPN. Fowler initially was diagnosed with a sprained left knee. However, after further test results, which included magnetic resonance imaging, it was determined that Fowler’s injury was significantly more serious. As a result, Fowler will miss the remainder of the 2021 Major League Bas

  11. Upon hearing the news that his season is over, Dexter Fowler didn’t spend any time lamenting his bad luck. “I just want to tell everybody that the comeback season has commenced,” Fowler said Sunday morning from Dunedin, Fla., where the Angels learned that an MRI exam of Fowler’s left knee showed a torn ACL that will require season-ending surgery. “At the end of the day, these are the cards I’ve been dealt. I’ve got to deal with them and go at it like that. The doctors said I’m going to have a full recovery, so I’m excited to hear that.” Fowler collided with Toronto Blue Jays second baseman

  13. Although Dexter Fowler said on Friday night that he might miss only a few days, that turned out to be optimistic. Fowler underwent an MRI that showed a sprained left knee, landing him on the 10-day injured list. Fowler collided with Marcus Semien at second base Friday night. “Nothing really awful, except that it’s sore,” Angels Manager Joe Maddon said Saturday from Dunedin, Fla. “I don’t know the length of time he is going to be out. But he was definitely much sorer than he showed when he left last night.” Without Fowler out for at least 10 days, the Angels declined to bring up another posi

  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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

  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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,

  25. 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
