It’s official: Shohei Ohtani won’t pitch again for the Angels this season, but he can still hit

Joe Maddon officially declared what the calendar had made likely a day earlier about Shohei Ohtani. “I’m not anticipating him pitching at all this year,” the Angels manager said Tuesday afternoon, officially putting an end to Ohtani as a two-way player in 2020. Ohtani will still be able to serve as a nearly full-time DH, although Maddon didn’t put him in the lineup on Tuesday because he said he’s still “a little bit sore.” Ohtani was diagnosed on Monday with a grade 1-2 strain of the flexor pron...

Jo Adell’s promotion to Angels means a reduction in playing time for Justin Upton

The start of Jo Adell’s big league career, one that the Angels hope will see him become a franchise player, can be pointed to Justin Upton. Adell, one of the top prospects in all of baseball, was promoted to the big leagues and inserted into the lineup on Tuesday night. It was a move that was inevitable, at some point, but the reason it’s happening right now is that Upton has started the season in a 5-for-37 slump. Manager Joe Maddon said Adell will now be the Angels everyday right fielder, whil...

Coronavirus cases are being undercounted in LA County

Technological flaws in the state’s electronic laboratory system have led to an under-reporting of coronavirus cases in Los Angeles County for at least two weeks, health officials said Tuesday, Aug. 4, prompting outreach to individual testing facilities to verify results. According to the county Department of Public Health, the issues with the state lab have impacted the county’s reporting of positive cases and efforts to conduct contact-tracing of confirmed patients. But the issues are not belie...

Cautious hope brews amid LA County’s dip in daily deaths, cases, hospitalizations

“Cautious optimism” was the phrase of the day on Monday, July 3, as Los Angeles County public health officials outlined a drop in counts for deaths, hospitalizations and positive cases — all of which would lead, if the trend continues, to the county getting off the state’s monitoring list and easing toughened health restrictions on education, places of worship and businesses. The grim reality was still that the disease is taking lives, and spreading: 12 new  COVID-19-related deaths, increasing ...

From fleeing Cambodia to helping build Mars rover, JPL engineer embodies ‘perseverance’

The bird-chirp alarm in Ny Sou Okon’s Pasadena home went off at 4 a.m. Thursday morning, July 30, signaling to her 8-year-old and 4-year-old sons that it was time to wake up. The day had come. The boys climbed out of bed and met their parents in the living room. Okon’s older son still squinted at the light. The family sat on the sofa and tuned into YouTube Live on the television above their fireplace. They set up a laptop on the coffee table, where Okon and her husband logged into a digital view...

Poseidion desalination proposal for Huntington Beach may face new requirements

Poseidon Water could be headed back to the drawing board to better compensate for the marine life expected to be killed by its proposed desalination plant in Huntington Beach. After hearings this week for one of two remaining major permits needed for the project, several members of the Regional Water Quality Control Board indicated they were dissatisfied with the proposed mitigation for the larvae and other small marine life that would die as a result of the plant’s ocean intake pipes. “I don’t ...

Brotherly love. Sibling rivalry. Any way it’s sliced, Taylor and Trevor Crabb have it all for each other.

Edmen Shahbazyan says UFC main event is just another fight

Good things come to those who wait, or so it goes. Edmen Shahbazyan was supposed to fight Derek Brunson twice already before an injury to his opponent postponed the first bout and a worldwide pandemic stalled the second. Yet there is no greater charm than that third time as the Glendale 22-year-old will take his undefeated record into his first main event against the veteran middleweight Saturday at UFC on ESPN+ 31 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The co-main event fight was moved up last week afte...

Angels’ Brian Goodwin says it’s important to continue the discussion about equality

ANAHEIM — Brian Goodwin has continued to make a statement during the national anthem, even as some of his Angels teammates did so only on Opening Day. For a simple reason. The racism that Goodwin and other players have been protesting by kneeling during the national anthem still exists. “It’s an important issue,” Goodwin said Thursday. “It’s something that needs to be addressed, and when you have the stage to address it, I feel like you need to use it. And right now, I’m in position to have the ...

How the pandemic opened up the creative floodgates for this veteran punk rocker

While life before the pandemic was very busy for Long Beach musician, writer and filmmaker Frank Meyer, staying at home has turned out to be a creative boon for the guitarist and frontman of the veteran punk rock band The Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs. Stuck in his two-bedroom apartment since March with his computer, a keyboard and a bunch of guitars and amps, Meyer has written and released several new songs in the past few months, including one all-star filled tune inspired by the coronavirus pandemic...

Joe Maddon doesn’t want Angels pitchers taking aim at the Astros

ANAHEIM — The Astros are coming to Angel Stadium this weekend for their first games against the Angels since news of their sign-stealing scandal broke last year. Despite the pandemic and the lack of fans to boo the Astros, major-league players clearly haven’t forgotten, a point made obvious when Dodgers reliever Joe Kelly incited a bench-clearing incident by throwing behind Alex Bregman on Tuesday. Angels Manager Joe Maddon said he’s aware some Angels pitchers might have hard feelings, but he’s ...

Los Angeles County reported Wednesday, July 29, the most coronavirus-related deaths in a single day — 91 — and the most new cases — 4,516 — since the pandemic began. The numbers were somewhat inflated due to reporting delays, but were nonetheless alarming in the county’s grand scheme of trying to suppress the spread of this deadly virus, according to Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer. There were, however, signs that continued social restrictions were working when looking at the rate of infec...

Trout disease in hatcheries leads to lack of the fish in area lakes

It’s summertime and the fish aren’t jumping. At least not the trout in Southern California. A contagious, potentially fatal bacteria has infected trout in the three state-run hatcheries that provide the fish to public lakes in Southern California and the eastern Sierra. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife expects to euthanize all 3.2 million trout in those hatcheries this week. The disease, which never before has seen in California, was first identified at the Mojave River Hatchery in...

Angels place Andrelton Simmons on the injured list with sprained ankle

ANAHEIM —A day after Andrelton Simmons told his manager he might only be out a few days, apparently the medical team disagreed. The Angels placed Simmons on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday with a sprained left ankle, an injury he suffered lunging for first base to beat out a hit on Monday in Oakland. There was no immediate word on whether the Angels expected him to be out longer than 10 days. When Manager Joe Maddon spoke to the media about three hours before the first pitch of Tuesday’s home...

Anthony Rendon moving closer to debut with Angels

OAKLAND — Joe Maddon expects Anthony Rendon’s debut with the Angels to come on Tuesday or Wednesday. The Angels’ $245-million, free-agent acquisition was not in the lineup on Monday for the fourth game of the season with his new team because of oblique tightness. He has taken ground balls and batting practice three days in a row, though. Maddon said the Angels considered having him play on Monday, but decided to take the cautious route and wait at least one more day. “If everything goes well tod...

No work, no rent: Tenants grapple with mounting debt, shrinking benefits

Alicia Kneifl had just started a new life in a new city with a new job. She and her husband sold their house in Lancaster, put their goods and their boat in storage, and rented an 11th-story Long Beach apartment with city and ocean views. Then the coronavirus shutdowns came, and the Kneifls rapidly lost everything — first their jobs, then their savings. They paid less than half their rent through June and couldn’t pay any in July. Adding to their hardship, Kneifl’s unemployment check will drop t...
