Sam Bachman

He had his first start there on Thursday. Pitched 3 innings allowing 4 runs but hit 99mph which he only did 4 times during his time in the MLB

Supposedly they only activated him from the injured list because pitchers have a 30 day limit on a rehab assignment. Now he can pitch in the minors for as long as it takes to get him ready


4 innings 4 hits 4 strikeouts 1 walk 1 run allowed in his last start in AA

4.1 innings 4 earned runs on sunday

Another Bachman update from his most recent start the other day:

5.2IP, 7H, 5R, 3ER, 1BB, 4K

Definitely becoming a starter, will probably need better results to get called up but definitely could see it happening after the angels trade away whatever is left of their pitching rotation at the deadline

6IP 1ER 8K in his last start really improving hopefully the Angels call him up soon
