The Los Angeles Angels made a trade two days in a row to reinforce the infield, which became a vulnerable position due to a series of injuries. I can feel the determination not to fall this year. It is a determination to continue the season against Shohei Ohtani, which may be the last, to the playoffs.
The Angels acquired Eduardo Escobar in a trade with the Mets on the 24th and Mike Mustakas in a trade with Colorado on the 25th. This is because infielders left in a row in a short period of time. Anthony Rendon is on the disabled list with a bruised wrist and Jack Neto with a left flank injury. Geo Acella is out for the season with a fractured hip.토토사이트
Angels General Manager Perry Minassian expressed his will to further strengthen, saying, “It’s still June. There is time until the trade deadline.” That’s why he is sincere about the fall baseball with Ohtani.
After two consecutive trades, general manager Minassian said at a press conference, “They say it’s an attempt to fill a big hole, but it’s not just a trade to fill a void. (Escobar and Mustakas both) are players with achievements. They’re players. I’m looking forward to seeing them both help the team in the second half.” It was emphasized that it was an attempt for better grades.
The Angels are 3rd in the American League West with a 43-37 win rate of 0.538 as of the 27th. Still, he’s in a position to compete in the American League wild card race. The New York Yankees (43-35), Toronto Blue Jays (43-36) and Houston Astros (42-36) are aiming for a wild card.
General Manager Minassian said, “The pressure is on yourself.” I thought. I wish I could do more.”
The Angels’ last fall baseball was in 2014. It was also eliminated from the Division Series. This is why Mike Trout has only three postseason experiences despite his splendid individual performance.
This year, starting with the Escobar-Mustakas trade, he dreams of playing fall baseball for the first time in nine years by building up his strength. After the transfer, Escobar was active with 4 hits in 8 at-bats, and Moustakas also hit for two days in a row, accelerating the team.
