N&N: Angels place large number of Angels on waivers

morning N&N for August 30

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Toronto Blue Jays Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

It’s likely that the Guardians needed to sweep the Twins this week, so of course they won last night once they had already lost the first game of the series. Worse than that though, was Gavin Williams stumbling off the mound and leaving the game shortly thereafter with knee soreness.

On the bright side, Bo Naylor homered again, and got himself in a sentence with Manny Ramirez. And Sam Hentges was scoreless again. Sam has not allowed a run since July 23.

If the Guardians need a New Noah to eat innings, the Angels may have given them just the opportunity...
