Angels Game Today: Angels vs Yankees Lineup, Odds, Prediction, Pick, Pitcher, TV for August 31
By Evan Desai
The LA Angels built off of their momentum from Saturday’s win against the Padres in Game One of their new series against the New York Yankees on Monday.
They won 8-7 against New York, powered by a grand slam from Jack Mayfield, Shohei Ohtani’s Major League-leading 42nd home run of the season, and a three-hit day from Juan Lagares.
The pitching was a little bit inconsistent, but there were plenty of things to like about how we performed against the AL Wild Card-leading Yankees.
Ohtani was originally supposed to pitch today, but will only be hitting due to a hand injury scare. Today will be tough, but the Angels are playing better.

Angels Pitcher Today
Jaime Barria will be starting in place of Ohtani tonight. He has had an up-and-down year, and posts a 2-2 record with a 5.56 ERA. This is another audition for next year, where he is hoped to be a strong candidate for a spot in the starting rotation.
Angels Starting Lineup
The Angels starting lineup hasn’t been released yet. Stay tuned for when it comes out!
Mike Trout Injury
Mike Trout hasn’t been making the progress he was as recently as about a week ago with his calf injury. He’s been feeling ‘sore’ after workouts recently, and may not ever be back this season.
Angels vs Yankees Prediction Today
If Ohtani was pitching, I think the Angels would very well have a chance in this game. I don’t expect them to take the win this time, however. The Angels could have a tough time with Barria on the mound.
They’re going against an explosive lineup, and while the Yanks have lost three straight, I still trust that lineup more than I trust Barria and then this bullpen.
