The starting lineup of the Los Angeles Angels is unusual. The starting pitchers are struggling with Shohei Ohtani also struggling.
The Angels lost 6-8 in an away game against the Cleveland Guardians held at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, USA on the 14th (Korean time). Although it is holding the second place in the American League West, it is being chased by Houston, which is in the third place.
The Angels have one problem. That’s the selection team.
This season, the Angels have built a five-starter lineup of Ohtani, Anderson, Patrick Sandoval, Reed Detmus, and Jose Suarez. However, Suarez was out due to a shoulder injury. Griffin Canning entered.
Of the starting lineup, only Ohtani and Sandoval are doing their part. Ohtani is 4-1 with a 2.74 ERA, and Sandoval is 3-1 with an ERA of 3.41.
However, Ohtani’s recent trend is not good. He has faltered with a 6.00 earned run average in his last three games. He also continues to allow home runs.
Looking at the rest of the starting lineup, Anderson, who was acquired for three years and a total of $33 million, only won one game in seven games. He has a 5.26 earned run average. Canning had an average ERA of 6.38 with 2 wins and 1 loss in 5 games.안전놀이터
On this day, starting pitcher Detmers showed quality start pitching with 2 runs in 6 innings, but failed to become a winning pitcher. Haven’t gotten a win yet. With only three losses, the average ERA is 4.89.
For this reason, the starting average of the team is 4.94, which is only 22nd in the league.
MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, also pointed out the starting lineup of the Angels as a part that needs first aid.
The media said, “It is important that the starting lineup is on the right track. Ohtani has been struggling in the last three games, Canning has been hit by Houston. Anderson and Detmers are also struggling. Suarez is likely to be out for two months.” We have to lean on rookie Chase Silces.”
Silces went 1-3 with an ERA of 6.59 in 7 games last season. He has been playing out of the bullpen all season. He has an earned run average of 3.24 in 4 games.
