Notes: For the first time, Harrison is competing against the organization that he played for from 2018-2021. The Angels have used him sparingly since calling him up on June 24 (seven plate appearances and no complete games)..Four straight multi-strikeout games for Trout matches the longest streak of his career...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 (.547 OPS in 105 PA).

  4. DH Jesús Aguilar (100, 111)

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Berti in, Bryan De La Cruz out; Cooper and Aguilar swap 1B/DH

Additional Notes: Berti missed the previous two games with a vague “lower extremities” issue...Rogers is using 4.18 pitches per plate appearance this season, which is super inefficient by MLB starting pitcher standards. He’s the antithesis of Sandy Alcantara in so many ways, including his habit of losing fastball velocity as the games goes on (whereas Sandy sometimes saves his best velo for the later innings)...Closer Tanner Scott is doubtful to be available after pitching four times in the previous five days.
