Rhett Bollinger | MLB.com: Mike Trout left Monday night’s game with a right calf strain. At the time of writing, it’s unknown whether Trout will have to go to the IL, but playing without Trout would be devastating for an already struggling Angels team.
Eric Stephen | True Blue LA: The Dodgers added Albert Pujols and Yoshi Tsutsugo over the weekend because the team’s incredible depth has somehow evaporated. The Dodgers apparently need all the help they can get.
Guarav Vedak | Talking Chop: Huascar Ynoa broke his hand punching part of the dugout after Sunday’s game and was placed on the 10-day IL. Tucker Davidson was called up to take Ynoa’s spot on the roster.
