The Angels were not supposed to be in playoff contention this season, and when Mike Trout went on the disabled list in late May, that was supposed to be the end for the team. But they are only three games out of an American League wild-card spot as the second half of the season begins.
Here’s a look at some key first-half numbers:
24-23: The Angel’s record when Mike Trout appeared in a game this season.
21-24: Their record in games without Trout.
10: The number of times teams have intentionally walked Trout this season, which leads the AL by three over Logan Morrison of Tampa Bay.
