    ESPN.com: Angels catcher Smith placed on concussion IL

    The Los Angeles Angels have put backup catcher Kevan Smith on the seven-day concussion injured list.

    The Angels made the move Wednesday afternoon, hours ahead of their game against the Minnesota Twins. To fill the spot on the roster, they selected the contract of catcher Dustin Garneau from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Smith left Tuesday night's 8-3 loss to the Twins after being hit in the mask by a foul tip during the fourth inning. Angels manager Brad Ausmus said postgame Smith was in the concussion protocol.

    "When we got out there, after 15 seconds, he seemed fine," Ausmus said, as quoted by MLB.

    Halos Heaven: Taylor Blake Ward talks Halos prospects and minor league ball

    Taylor Blake Ward is a great follow on social media. He knows the Angels farm system better than anyone else out there. His work is linked here often by Stirrups and referenced in countless comments.

    He was nice enough to take some time this week to talk about his love of minor league baseball and discuss some Angels prospects. Hopefully this is the first of an ongoing series here with Taylor as he is as personable as he is knowledgeable.

    Here's the transcript of that call:

    Taylor, thanks for the time, what got you in to covering prospects?

    Halos Heaven: HumpLinks: Halos' Pen Is Full Of Bull

    Don't blame an offense that created an immediate 3-run lead for the Halo pitching staff to hold. (Well, OK, you can blame Tommy La Stella, Albert Pujols, Kole Calhoun, Kevan Smith and Brian Goodwin for going 0 for 18, but in the end we needed a LOT of runs.)

    Don't blame Trevor Cahill, who held that lead through 5 innings, the first 4 of which were no-hit. Don't the blame the defense too much, which was errorless, if not clueless.

    So on a team with one of the better bullpens in MLB, this should be a lock, yeah?

    Halos Heaven: Andrelton Simmons has a grade 3 ankle sprain

    New came recently on the extend of Simmons' ankle injury and it's not good. He'll be further evaluated tomorrow per Angels PR

    Luis Rengifo will be coming back to the Big A and the good news is that Shohei Ohtani is apparently okay. In fact, he's so okay that he is starting tonight!

    Angels vs RH Pineda: La Stella 5, Trout 8, Ohtani DH(!), Pujols 3, Calhoun 9, Smith 2, Goodwin 7, Rengifo 4, Fletcher 6, Cahill RHP

    -- Fabian Ardaya (@FabianArdaya) May 21, 2019

    Luis Rengifo will also get to start after hopping on a flight from Salt Lake City earlier today.

    Halos Heaven: Bullpen doesn't do bullpen things, shift doesn't do shift things, Angels do Buttercup things

    It was a nice start.

    In fact, after the Trout home run, the Angels scratched across two more runs in the second inning with the help of some timely hitting and a wild pitch. And Trevor Cahill did un-Trevor Cahill-esque things. He pitched well.

    And because Cahill pitched well, to restore balance to the universe, the baseball gods willed our bullpen to take a nosedive. Justin Anderson entered the game in the sixth inning with a man aboard. At that time, the Angels were leading 3-0. Anderson threw two pitches, and the game was tied.

    ESPN.com: Angels put Simmons on IL, Ohtani OK after scare

    ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Angels received equal bits of good and bad news Tuesday.

    Shohei Ottani was fine, a day after he was hit on the right ring finger while swinging on a third strike.

    But they are going to be without Andrelton Simmons for awhile.

    The shortstop was placed on the 10-day injured list after he hurt his left ankle during Monday's loss to the Minnesota Twins. Simmons sustained a grade 3 ankle sprain when he tried to beat out an infield hit during the eighth inning.

    Halos Heaven: Twins @ Angels 05/21/2019 The David Fletcher Era Gamethread

    MLB

    For better or for worse, we are trusting David Fletcher with the shortstop position. He must deliver.

    The world is ending and honestly who even cares about baseball when Ohtani and Simba go down and this team is a mess and we're all going down in flames and **takes deep breath

    ESPN.com: Angels place Simmons on IL with ankle sprain

    The Angels are placing shortstop Andrelton Simmons on the 10-day injured list after an MRI on Tuesday revealed a Grade 3 left ankle sprain.

    Simmons was hurt while trying to beat out an infield hit in the eighth inning of Monday night's loss to the Twins.

    X-rays were negative, but the MRI confirmed the Grade 3 sprain. Simmons will see a foot and ankle specialist Wednesday, the team said.

    Also, Shohei Ohtani is available to play Tuesday night against the Twins

    Ohtani took a ball off his right ring finger while swinging at a third strike on Monday against Minnesota.

    Fansided: Injuries to Ohtani, Simmons Could Derail LA Angels Season

    While the LA Angels were holding onto hope for a comeback win over the Minnesota Twins on Monday, fate had other plans.

    With Shohei Ohtani at the plate, the Halos needed one big swing to be back in the game. Undoubtedly, Ohtani was the right guy for that, but he never got the chance.

    Ohtani took a mid-90's fastball off of his right hand (on a strikeout, nonetheless), and panic struck the Orange County area. After seeing Justin Upton miss so much time to turf toe, any potential injury scares us fans.

    However, Ohtani was never pulled from the game, and all seemed well.

    Halos Heaven: Zack Cozart, the new Jeff Mathis

    I'm not sure if Zack Cozart played quarterback in high school. I am pretty sure he was not offered the chance to play football at Florida State University. But when it comes to his time in the batter's box while wearing an Angels uniform, he's matched the legendary Jeff Mathis stride for stride.

    Long the poster child for offensive ineptitude as a Halo, Jeff Mathis sported a career .194/.257/.301 slash line over the course of 1360 plate appearances. The fact Mathis received 1360 plate appearances is easily justification for keeping Mike Scioscia out of the Hall of Fame as a manager, but that is a story for another day.

    Fansided: LA Angels loss to Twins could prove to be costly

    In the LA Angels eighth inning first Shohei Ohtani was hit on the hand by a 94-mph fastball and had to leave the game after being checked out by the Angels medical staff. This only two weeks since Ohtani had come back from Tommy John Surgery. X-Rays on Ohtani's hand came back negative, but he will still be listed as day-to-day.

    Ohtani was starting to come around recently hitting two home runs in the past six games. He is the protection in the line-up that Mike Trout has needed this season. Ohtani has provided that recently, but he may be out for up to a week.

    Halos Heaven: TuesdoLinks: Twins Crack Open Halos

    It's a strange night when a Cam Bedrosian comes out to clean up the mess that is being made by a Ty Buttrey. Which makes The Athletic ($$) look silly picking a very bad moment to pimp up Buttrey's great success this season.

    And I look silly posting up all that Trout Porn below, what with Mike going 0 for 4 and stranding 5 runners on base.

    The Angels lose a tight one 3-1, and stuff like that makes a difference.

    For those who went to bed worrying, yes, both Andrelton Simmons and Shohei Ohtani had to be taken off the field injured.
