Tonight's game has Trevor Bauer starting in place of Danny Salazar, who was scratched this afternoon due to illness. Due to the off day yesterday for the Indians, Bauer will still pitch on the normal four days rest.

Bauer is 9-10 on the year with a 4.48 ERA, but has struggled since the All-Star break. Over his last seven appearances, Bauer has allowed 25 earned runs over just 39 and 1/3 innings. Bauer was sharp last Sunday in New York, allowing just two hits and one run.

The Angels will start left-hander Andrew Heaney. The 6'2" Heaney is 5-2 on the year with a 3.39 ERA. He struggled in his last start, giving up eight earned runs in just 3 and 1/3 innings.
