Los Angeles Angels vs Cleveland Guardians 5/12/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Los Angeles Angels will go against the Cleveland Guardians in MLB action in Progressive Field, OH, on Friday, May 12, 2023, at 7:10 PM ET.


After losing the last game of their home series against the Astros on Wednesday, Los Angeles enters this one with a losing record of four of their previous five games.


With a record of 20-18 as of Thursday, the Angels were three games back of the Rangers for first place in the AL West.


For Los Angeles on Wednesday, Anthony Rendon (run) and Hunter Renfroe (run, two RBI) each got two hits, but it wasn’t enough to secure a victory.


In a losing effort for the Angels, Renfroe (his 10th home run) and Shohei Ohtani (his eighth) each hit a long ball.


Griffin Canning (2-1) was given the loss after throwing 3.2 innings and allowing five runs on five hits, 1 walk, and 3 strikeouts. 5.1 scoreless innings of relief work from the Angels’ bullpen were overshadowed by the shaky start.


After joining the Angels from the Dodgers in the offseason, Tyler Anderson is on the mound for the team as he makes his eighth start of the year.


Over 31.2 innings of work, he has a 1-0 record, a 5.40 ERA, a 1.642 WHIP, 16 walks, and 24 strikeouts. In his most recent start, which occurred last Friday at home against the Rangers, Anderson had no bearing on the decision.


In a match that the Angels fought to win 5-4 in 10 innings, he pitched five innings, giving up three runs on five hits, 5 walks, and 6 strikeouts.


  • The Los Angeles Angels are 1-4 SU in their previous 5 matches.
  • The LA Angels are 5-15 SU in their previous 20 games with Cleveland.
  • The Angels are 4-1 SU in their previous 5 matches on the road.

On Wednesday, Cleveland managed just four hits, with Tyler Freeman being the only player to collect two.


Only twice in the whole game did the Guardians get at-bats with runners in scoring position, leaving seven runners on base.

For the Guardians, Logan Allen will start this game, marking his fourth of the year. He enters the game with a record of 1-1, a 2.70 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, five walks, and 19 Ks in 16.2 innings of work.


In his most recent start last Saturday at home against the Twins, Allen had no bearing on the decision. He pitched 5.2 innings that the team eventually won 4-3, surrendering two runs on seven hits, two walks, and three Ks. 


  • The total remained UNDER in 9 of Cleveland’s last 10 matches.

  • The total stayed UNDER in 8 of Cleveland’s last 9 matches at home.

Los Angeles Angels vs Cleveland Guardians. The MLB pick for this game is the Cleveland Guardians. Anderson did not resemble the pitcher he was with the Dodgers a season ago in the least.


He has a 15-5 record this year, a 2.57 ERA, a 1.002 WHIP, 34 walks, and 138 strikeouts in 178.2 innings pitched, and he already gave out 21 free passes.


Although he already gave up six home runs this season, he permitted just 14 last year. Despite his dismal stats, his FIP ERA indicates that he has really been lucky, coming in at 6.06 this year.


The Angels have the advantage offensively, but as we saw frequently this season, it’s hard to put much trust in a club with bad pitching. Cleveland will win to a predicted score of 6-4.
