Alex Meyer embodies exactly what the Angels need

Alex Meyer embodies exactly what the Angels need

Acquiring high-upside talent is a necessity should the team “intend to contend” moving forward. Alex Meyer took a curveball to one of the league’s best offenses yesterday, striking out seven and walking just one in the best start of his career to-date. To put some perspective on this, here’s Meyer’s game scores from Fangraphs sorted from highest to lowest (50 is average, it’s on a 0-100 scale). See that 86? That’s from yesterday. The start in which he silenced a lineup consisting of multiple players that will garner MVP votes, including Bryce Harper, Anthony...

In his tiny hometown in West Texas, the Angels’ Parker Bridwell was a three-sport star for the remarkably named Hereford Whitefaces, so called because of the cattle breed from which the town took its name.

Nationals edge Angels in showdown between Bryce Harper and Mike Trout

For one inning, Tuesday’s series opener between the Angels and the Washington Nationals was exactly what it had been hyped to be: Bryce Harper versus Mike Trout, a young superstar showcase. For the next eight, it was a baseball game, played by 27 men and won by the more talented team. Harper and...

Angels provide a golden opportunity for Nick Franklin

Nine years ago this week, Nick Franklin and Mike Trout competed to make the United States’ national team of 18-and-under ballplayers in trials at Phoenix. Both played the infield and pitched. “Mike was really, really scrappy,” said Franklin, the Angels’ new second baseman. Franklin was one of 18...

Angels mailbag: Thinking about next year

Hello, Angels fans. Welcome to another edition of the mailbag. Your favorite team is 46-49, which translates to a 78-win pace for a full season. That’s not good, but the New York Yankees are currently in American League playoff position, and they are on pace to win 85 games. That’s not good either....

Angels, Nationals have a heated history, if not a rivalry

There is no real rivalry between the Angels and Washington Nationals, who will be in Anaheim for a two-game series beginning Tuesday night. The teams are in different leagues, on opposite coasts and have played each other only 15 times since 2003, with the Angels holding a 10-5 edge in the interleague...

Miller: Angels find their winning hand in far from a full house

ANAHEIM – The Angels aren’t giving up on their season, even as their fans are giving up on them. At least that’s what it looked like Sunday, when they played Tampa Bay in front of vast stretches of unoccupied seats, the game sold out only in terms of public indifference. If these are indeed the […]

C.J. Cron's two-run home run late lifts Angels over Rays

C.J. Cron had batted four times in five days with the Angels since his most recent callup. He stepped to the plate in Sunday’s eighth inning at Angel Stadium for his fifth chance, pinch-hitting against a Tampa Bay left-hander named Adam Kolarek. Cron swung at the first pitch, a fastball over the...

Danny Espinosa is designated for assignment by the Angels

Once a talented defender and capable power hitter with a penchant for swinging and missing, Danny Espinosa’s flaws amplified as an Angel. The strikeouts became too large a burden to bear. Acquired in December to wield his powerful arm at second base and hit homers, the 30-year-old Orange County...

Angels Notes: Time runs out for Danny Espinosa

ANAHEIM — The Angels finally ran out of patience with Danny Espinosa. The Angels cut ties with the veteran second baseman on Sunday morning, designating him for assignment after he had hit .162 in 72 games.

Mike Trout's return doesn't exactly give the Angels the edge they need against Rays

It is not cruel, but it is an unusual sort of punishment Mike Trout is experiencing. While he was hurt, the Angels played better than anyone expected. Now that he is healthy, they have returned to their mediocre ways. More and more, it appears their improbable playoff hopes are on the verge of...

Throwing sessions are a positive sign for Angels pitcher Garrett Richards

Garrett Richards put on his glove, grabbed a baseball and tossed it around. The once-rote set of actions took on additional meaning Friday. The 29-year-old right-hander, the club’s most talented pitcher, had not played catch since April 5. Doctors ordered him to abstain because of nerve irritation...
