Matt Vasgersian will be the Angels’ new television play-by-play voice for game broadcasts on Fox Sports West, the team announced Thursday.

In addition to Vasgersian, Daron Sutton has been hired to be the team’s secondary play-by-play broadcaster in a new three-man booth that includes returning color commentator Mark Gubicza and newly elevated analyst José Mota.

This year, Vasgersian and Sutton expect to split the team’s Fox Sports West (soon to be Bally Sports West) broadcast schedule fairly evenly. Specific regular-season game assignments have yet to be decided.


A Bay Area native and 30-year broadcasting veteran, Vasgersian has a long resume calling baseball and other sports. Vasgersian is the play-by-play voice of ESPN’s national “Sunday Night Baseball” telecasts and hosts multiple studio shows for MLB Network. He will continue in both of those roles in addition to his new duties with the Angels.

In double-A games this year, teams will be required to use a minimum of four infielders, all of whom must have both feet in front of the outfield grass.

“The hope is you appeal to the fan base and become a friendly voice,” Vasgersian said. “You really don’t have that luxury so much doing national games. … I missed the local affectation of games and I wanted to get back to it.”
