Will the Angels’ Inconsistencies Continue vs. the Astros?
Even though they got off to one of the hottest starts in baseball, there hasn’t been a lot to like about how the Angels have performed recently. Despite having two premiere superstars in their lineup, pitching has continued to be a massive question mark, and it’s not going to get any easier as they enter a series against one of the AL’s best teams, the Astros.
Angels Projected Lineup:
RF Taylor Ward
CF Mike Trout
DH Shohei Ohtani
1B Jared Walsh
2B Luis Rengifo
C Max Stassi
LF Brandon Marsh
SS Andrew Velazquez
3B Tyler Wade
Starting Pitcher: Michael Lorenzen
Will the Astros’ Dominance of the AL West Continue vs. the Angels?
The Houston Astros have maintained a double-digit lead in the AL West, where they currently sit 11 games ahead of the Texas Rangers. Besides the Astros, no team in this division has put together multiple stretches of consistent baseball. This shouldn’t be a surprise with how good Houston has been with numerous veterans and a squad that has proven they know how to win.
Astros Projected Lineup:
Check back for this lineup update tomorrow, with multiple question marks surrounding the availability of Jeremy Pena and Yordan Alvarez following a scary collision. The Astros face off with the Yankees tonight, which should clarify how this roster will shape up if those two are sidelined for this matchup.
Starting Pitcher: TBD
