The LA Angels come into today after a disappointing three-game series against the Oakland A’s.
The Halos ended up getting swept by their division rival. Even when Ace Shohei Ohtani threw an absolute eight-inning gem yesterday, his teammates couldn’t get on base, unlike Ohtani.
This sucked because it was just one series away from when the Angels ended up taking two of three from the White Sox on the road, who aren’t that much better than the A’s right now, realistically.
Remember, after the Angels series, the White Sox had been 29-28 in their last 57 games. A successful Oakland series would have been huge, but the Angels have a chance to make a statement in their last four-game series at Angel Stadium this year.

Angels Pitcher Today
Jaime Barria will be taking the mound for the Angels today. He’s had an up-and-down year this season after showing some promise in the past.
Today’s an audition. There are starting rotation spots open for next year, and Barria still has time to prove himself. If he can improve on his 4.93 ERA, his case will be much stronger.
In that case, we can maybe look past his inconsistencies and see a guy who had a strong finish.

Mike Trout Injury
Mike Trout’s not going to play today, and it’s really looking like he won’t for the rest of the year.
Angels vs Astros Prediction Today
The Angels won’t be taking this one. We won’t get swept, but other than Ohtani, we didn’t show a ton of signs of life against Oakland.
Listen, I know that we were close on Friday and yesterday, but that’s kind of the problem. Even when we fight ourselves into a game, we find a way to not finish it out and be the team that comes out on top.
I like Barria’s talent, but he hasn’t been particularly good this year, and the Angels aren’t healthy at all as far as the position players go. I just really don’t like our chances against good teams as we close out the year, and we have 10 more games against good teams this season.
