News About the Angels
Here is the link to the Angels schedule. Andrew Heaney is going to be our opening day starter. Julio Teheran has been missing from Summer Camp for two days in a row now. There is a lot of speculation about why that might be. The LA Angels have delayed the start of their Monday workout because of a snafu with the virus testing.
MLB issued a statement about the testing delays. Basically they say “Oops! It won’t happen again.” A number of teams, including the Angels lost workout time because of this. Let’s hope they get it sorted out.
The Opt Outs And Positive Test Results
Nick Markakis has opted out of the 2020 season. Joey Gallo has tested positive for coronavirus. Freddie Freeman not only tested positive, but he is pretty sick. Aaron Nola, Adam Haseley, and Christian Bethancourt are all on the Phillies’ COVID-19 IL along with a bunch of other guys we already knew about. The Phillies might end up having to throw in the towel. Luis Urias and Angel Perdomo of the Brewers have also tested positive for COVID-19.
