In an article on The Athletic, two-time National League MVP Award winner Dale Murphy says that Mike Trout is the best player he’s seen. “Mike Schmidt was among the best players of my era. So was Pete Rose (the all-time hits leader deserves a tip of the cap). So was

After 1,347 games, Bourjos at 2B -- and shines

Things can get weird when games go 14 innings. In the Angels' 4-3 loss against the Yankees on Monday night, that meant Peter Bourjos playing the infield for the first time in his professional career -- and making a highlight-reel play at second base. Bourjos, who had never played any

Angels take positives from 14-inning loss

1:22 AM PDT

ANAHEIM -- It was a wild 14-inning game with several subplots such as Matt Harvey turning in his best start of the season, a solid showing from the bullpen, an unlikely comeback against closer Aroldis Chapman in the 12th inning, Peter Bourjos’ first action in the infield in his career

La Stella's slugging 'a very pleasant surprise'

April 22, 2019

ANAHEIM -- When the Angels traded for infielder Tommy La Stella from the Cubs this offseason, they thought he’d be a good fit for the club because of his ability to get on base and play multiple positions. It was nearly impossible to predict that La Stella would provide power

ANAHEIM -- The Angels employed the opener strategy for the first time this season and it helped them end a six-game losing streak. Hansel Robles opened with a scoreless first before handing it over to Jaime Barria, who threw five strong innings in an 8-6 win over the Mariners on

We’re not predicting Christian Yelich is going to hit 92 home runs or that Shane Greene is going to save 81 games or that Tyler Glasnow is going to go 29-0. As for Byron Buxton racking up 102 doubles, why not? That one seems strangely possible. We’re simply saying that

ANAHEIM -- Left-hander Tyler Skaggs, on the injured list with a left ankle sprain, said his 44-pitch bullpen session went well on Saturday, but manager Brad Ausmus said Skaggs is expected to throw off a mound one more time before he’s activated to rejoin the rotation. Skaggs, who injured his

Let’s not kid ourselves: the story of baseball in the year 2019 is velocity. Remember back when FOX telecasts used to show a flame going WHOOSH! every time a pitch went over 95 mph? They’d have to do that every pitch now. Pitchers throw harder now than at any time

ANAHEIM -- One of Trevor Cahill’s biggest strengths throughout his career has been his ability to generate grounders and avoid allowing home runs. But Cahill has uncharacteristically struggled to keep the ball in the park this season, and that was again the case in a 6-5 loss to the Mariners

Angels' huge comeback goes for naught

April 19, 2019

ANAHEIM -- It was nearly a historic comeback for the Angels. Instead, it was just another disappointing loss, as the club erased an eight-run deficit only to see closer Cody Allen give up the go-ahead run in the ninth inning of an 11-10 defeat on Thursday night at Angel Stadium.

Identifying future closers isn't easy. Mariano Rivera, baseball's all-time saves leader and only unanimous Hall of Famer, began his pro career as a starter. So did Edwin Diaz and Wade Davis, the league leaders in saves a year ago, and many other pitchers who are nailing down the ninth inning
