Notes: With Joe Maddon fired and regular interim manager Phil Nevin and bench coach Ray Montgomery both serving suspensions, catching coach Bill Hasselman will act as Angels skipper for this series opener...Syndergaard at his peak threw about as hard as Sandy Alcantara, but he hasn’t fully regained his velocity coming off Tommy John surgery. His four-seam fastball is performing poorly so far in 2022 (minus-2 run value, according to Baseball Savant)...The only active Angels hitters with substantial playing experience at LoanDepot Park are Kurt Suzuki (1.036 OPS in 82 PA) and the former Marlin Jonathan Villar (.570 OPS in 101 PA).
