The Los Angeles Angels will meet with the Oakland Athletics in MLB action in HoHoKam Stadium Mesa, AZ, on Friday, March 18, 2022, at 4:05 PM ET. Before the lockout, the Halos made numerous major changes to enhance the roster, but they still have work to do, especially with their sights set on a postseason spot in 2022.

 

The team has not made the playoffs since 2014, but it believes it has the high-end ability to do so this year, headlined by Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout. The Angels completed their first major offseason splurge by signing right-hander Noah Syndergaard to a one-year, $21 million contract.

 

They also acquired right Michael Lorenzen to a one-year, $6.75 million contract with the idea of bringing him into the rotation in 2022. They also strengthened their bullpen by re-signing closer Raisel Iglesias to a four-year, $58 million contract, as well as adding lefty Aaron Loup to a two-year, $17 million deal.

 

By obtaining Tyler Wade in a transaction with the Yankees and acquiring Andrew Velazquez from the Yankees, the club strengthened its infield depth. The Angels could look for a starting pitcher and bullpen assistance, but they need to figure out how they’ll address the shortstop position.

 

There are still some high-profile shortstops on the market, including Carlos Correa and Trevor Story, but the organization has some internal possibilities and would be better off investing in pitching.

 

  • The LA Angels are 2-3 in their last 5 matches.
  • Los Angeles is 14-20 in their road matches against the spread
  • The totals went OVER in 5 of Angels’ last 5 matches.

Los Angeles Angels vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 3/18/2022

 

Former commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti famously said that baseball is designed to shatter your heart. Indeed, our favorite players grow old, are released, are moved, and occasionally exit free agency. Because this deal marks the departure of Freddie Freeman, a franchise symbol for the Braves since 2010, MVP winner, five-time All-Star, and World Series champion, it’s undoubtedly a trade fraught with mixed emotions among Braves fans.

 

They’ll miss Freeman, but I believe they’ll grow to like Matt Olson. In this agreement, the A’s were able to receive even more. Atlanta selected Ryan Cusick in the first round of the 2021 draft out of Wake Forest. He’s a big guy, 6-foot-6 and 235 pounds, with a fastball that reaches triple digits.

 

After struggling with control in college, his pro debut was promising, with 34 strikeouts and four walks over 16.1 innings. If it all comes together, there are a lot of possibilities here, with a clear backup as a late-inning reliever. 

 

  • The Oakland Athletics are 5-0 in their last 5 matches.
  • Oakland is 17-10 in their road matches against the spread
  • The totals went OVER in 5 of Athletics’ last 5 matches.

Los Angeles Angels vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Angels. The team isn’t looking to deal with any specific players, but it is willing to offer prospects in exchange for pitching help. The Angels’ farm system is loaded with young outfielders, and No. 3 prospect Jordyn Adams might be used as a trade chip.

 

They also have some promising middle infielders on the rise, like Arol Vera, Kyren Paris, and Jeremiah Jackson, who would pique interest. The Los Angeles Angels will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
