Preview & Picks: Angels vs Rangers 8/16/2023

August 16, 2023


Game Preview


The Angels are now in fourth place in the American League West Division with a 59-61 record, having won just three of their last 10 games. Meanwhile, the Rangers have the best record in the American League West Division at 71-48 after winning eight of their past 10 games. The Angels will start Reid Detmers, who has given up 14 runs over his last two starts, against the Rangers’ Jon Gray, who has given up 11 runs over his last three.


The Angels are seeing their postseason chances diminish and need to rapidly reverse course. In the upcoming game, Reid Detmers will get the ball and aim to turn around a terrible season in which he has allowed 68 runs in 107.2 innings pitched. And with a 4.63 predicted ERA, a.257 expected opponent batting average, and a.416 expected opponent slugging percentage, it’s clear that batters are having success making contact and applying power to the ball against Detmers.



The Rangers are having a fantastic season and are aiming for the American League’s top record. Starting pitcher Jon Gray has had a rough season so far, allowing 51 runs in 120.2 innings. Gray will aim to rebound in his next start. Gray’s opponents are making contact and stringing together quality plate appearances to easily drive in runs, as evidenced by his 4.23 anticipated ERA,.258 expected opponent batting average, and 20.8 Strikeout Percentage.


In spite of the Angels’ best efforts, the Rangers have been hitting on all cylinders and plan to take command of this game right away. With Carey Seager, Adolis Garcia, and the rest of the Rangers’ lineup making solid contact and destroying pitches, the Rangers should easily score more than their average of 5.75 runs per game against the Angels’ pitching staff.
