The LA Angels are going on the road after they just played a tough series vs. the Oakland Athletics.
They ended up dropping three of four to the A’s, as Oakland continues to give Anaheim fits this season.
It’s a different story when it comes to our new opponent; the Texas Rangers. We’re 5-3 vs. Texas this year. Despite this last series having us dip under .500, we’re still 14 games above the Rangers right now for fourth place in the AL West standings.
The Rangers are, however, coming off of a series win against a good Mariners team, and have won back-to-back ballgames.

Angels Starting Lineup
The starting lineup hasn’t been released yet. Stay tuned!
Mike Trout Injury
I would not count on Mike Trout playing today. He’s healing a bit slowly, and it looks like the calf strain was likely a little bit more than just that. It was likely a bit of a tear if it’s taking this long to heal.
Angels vs Rangers Prediction Today
The Angels will come out on top today. They’re simply a much better team than the Rangers this season, and need a big series win here if they want to be competitive when Trout gets back.
Dunning has by no means been bad this year, but he’s still pretty beatable. The challenge for the Angels will be about overcoming their struggles at the plate recently, but they’ll get back on track. They’ve been here before.
