Alexander: A day for L.A. to celebrate, and exhale after Betts’ extension

But maybe it was the player involved, as well as the opportunity to watch M...

Anthony Rendon expected to miss first Opening Day with Angels

ANAHEIM >> It looks like Anthony Rendon’s debut with the Angels won’t come on Opening Day. Rendon, who signed a seven-year, $245-million deal with the Angels in December, has been out for a week because of oblique tightness that is now expected to keep him out when the Angels open their season in Oakland on Friday. “He more than likely may miss a couple in Oakland,” Manager Joe Maddon said Wednesday. “We’re not ready to do anything more than that.” Maddon said Rendon “is on a pretty good path,” ...
