After the game, Scioscia said Ohtani was “penciled” in to start on Wednesday, although they wouldn’t make anything official until Tuesday.Sign up for Home Turf and get 3 exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.Ohtani was expected to start on Sunday in New York, but the Angels pushed him back a few days because of what they called “workload management.” Ohtani suggested it had something to do with the season-high 110 pitches he threw his last time out.Meanwhile, Ohtani had been getting plenty of work at the plate before finding himself out of the lineup on Monday, ending a six-game streak as the DH.

Andrelton Simmons and Chris Young, who each had one hit and one walk, were the only Angels who seemed able to figure him out.“He did a good job of changing speeds,” Scioscia said. “We didn’t get a lot of good looks at him early. We got his pitch count up a little bit, but he put up zeroes for those guys.”The Angels have been held to three runs or fewer in 12 of their past 16 games.ALSORelated Articles Scioscia said there were “a lot of things” that went into the decision to keep Ohtani out of the lineup on Monday. It is likely that one of them was the Detroit Tigers starting left-hander Matt Boyd. The days when Ohtani has been healthy and available and still not started have all been when the opponents started lefties.Ohtani was coming off an 0-for-9 series, with four walks, over the weekend in New York. Scioscia said he didn’t see anything of concern in his at-bats, though.“I think his process is really good,” he said. “He’s taking his walks. He hit the ball hard. You are going to go through these stretches. It’s the first time he’s hit six straight days (in the majors). I thought his at-bats were good.”TOUGH BOYDAlthough many fans may not be familiar with Boyd, he has been the Tigers’ best starter this year, including former Rookie of the Year Michael Fulmer. Boyd brought a 3.29 ERA into the Monday’s game, and he lowered it to 3.00 by shutting out the Angels over five innings.“He’s sneaky,” Martín Maldonado said. “He’s got a little funkiness. He kept us off balance. He never gave in. He was throwing any pitch at any time. That’s why you get a guy like that who has those low numbers.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Mike Trout, with bat and glove, helps Angels end losing streak
