The Angels, fresh off taking three of four from the Minnesota Twins, now return home to face the Colorado Rockies, who have an abysmal road record.
Of course, the Angels have turned easy series into hard ones before.
As of Sunday evening, there has been no resolution on last week’s report about living conditions for Angels minor leaguers.
Perry Minasian’s strategy of under-drafting, which perhaps caused Sam Bachman to be the first-round pick instead of Kumar Rocker, has paid dividends. The savings went to the one high school pitcher the Angels drafted in the twelfth round, Mason Albright.
Only three Angels draftees remain unsigned.
Alex Claudio has been DFA’d.
Mike Trout will see a doctor today about his calf. He did not run over the weekend over fear of aggravating something.
Patrick Sandoval is a stud, carrying a no-hit bid into the ninth.
Team USA defeated Japan in softball on Sunday night. The two teams will rematch on Tuesday for the gold medal.
The trade deadline is July 30.

Byron Buxton and the Twins could not reach an extension agreement. Buxton will likely be traded in the offseason.
