Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield HEALTH UPDATESAnthony Rendon made the trip up to Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night, but he was not in the lineup and Maddon had no news on whether he his oblique had improved enough for him to have better chance at playing in Friday night’s season opener.Andrew Heaney, who had a stiff back over the weekend, threw a bullpen session on Tuesday and came out feeling good, according to a team spokesman. Heaney is scheduled to start against the A’s on Friday night.Julio Teheran is scheduled for his second bullpen session since reporting to camp on Wednesday. Teheran missed the first two weeks after testing positive for the coronavirus in June. It’s unclear when Teheran would be able to join the Angels’ rotation, but he said he thinks he’s only a week behind.ALSOMaddon said they are still unsure about how to structure the workouts for the reserve squad at Long Beach once the regular season starts, but they are leaning toward having three intrasquad games and three workout days a week, with one day off. They will not be able to play against the Dodgers — even though they will be nearby, at USC — because it would be unfair to teams whose alternate training site is not close enough for practice games…The Angels outrighted right-hander Jacob Rhame to the reserve squad, clearing a spot on the 40-man roster. Rhame was claimed on waivers from the New York Mets. The Angels could also clear a roster spot by moving Justin Anderson, who is having Tommy John surgery, to the 45-day injured list. The top non-roster candidates to make the Opening Day roster are relievers Jacob Barnes and Neil Ramirez.

He said Middleton had discussed his intentions with his teammates and they fully supported him.“We’ve had really outstanding exchanges with the entire group,” Maddon said. “We’ve talked about Black Lives Matter.

As a black man in this country it is my obligation to want to better the future for generations to come. Over the past few months I’ve been out in the community taking part in peaceful protests and having the difficult conversations that are needed for change.“Before pioneers like Jackie Robinson, a Black man didn’t have a voice in the game of baseball. The foundation laid down and sacrifices made by Jackie and others is the reason why I have the platform I do. I will not allow that to go to waste. Kneeling for me is one way I can use my platform for change in a peaceful way.“I have the utmost respect for all the brave men and women that served this country. We must all take this fight against racial injustice seriously. Until things start to change in this country and my brothers and sisters don’t have to live in fear, I will be using my platform to implement change. “He kind of indicated he was upset he had not done it before. The only thing to read into it is the young man is very passionate about his beliefs. And that’s what he told you tonight. I have a grand daughter that is going through the same thing and I totally support her reaction.“We always have to understand the reason why people do different things. And I think his intentions are something that we already talked about. He demonstrated against what he perceived to be social injustices. It’s no disrespect to the flag or anything else.”Around the same time Middleton was kneeling before the Angels game in San Diego, several members of the Giants, including Manager Gabe Kapler, kneeled before the Anthem in Oakland.On Tuesday, New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge said he would not kneel for the Anthem, but he respected the decisions of those who did.“The beauty of America: freedom of speech,” Judge said. “We have a special platform as athletes … Whatever message we give out here is that we want to express unity, we’re all in this together & try to have those uncomfortable conversations.”The displays also drew the attention of President Donald Trump, who tweeted his displeasure early Tuesday morning.“Looking forward to live sports, but any time I witness a player kneeling during the National Anthem, a sign of great disrespect for our Country and our Flag, the game is over for me!,” Trump tweeted.
