The Angels are 68-69. They will not make the playoffs. We’re now seeing open auditions for 2022.
With a combination of young rookies, journeymen, and players looking to take their next step, the Angels are fairly unrecognizable from the way they started the season.
We’ve all heard about Jack Mayfield, but it seems like he has a chance to make the team in 2022. Mayfield is under control until 2025.
Although Luis Rengifo made a key error in Sunday’s game, he also tallied two hits and sent a ball to the warning track. He’ll likely split time with Mayfield as the Angels continue to monitor his development.
The Angels are now pitching guys like Janson Junk, Kyle Tyler, Elvis Peguero, Jimmy Herget, Oliver Ortega, and Andrew Wantz. José Marte, Austin Warren, and Reid Detmers hope to come off the COVID list soon.
It’s definitely an interesting experience that will play out at the park for the rest of the year, but it doesn’t all have to be bad. Perhaps some gems will emerge from the rough.
Happy Labor Day!
