The Angels who are healthy are batting a combined .102 in their careers against Justin Verlander, with 57 strikeouts in 167 at-bats. With the 4 o'clock start, they'll also spend some time hitting in the shadows. This should be fun.

Justin Upton's line drive bounced off the glove of an outstretched Marwin Gonzalez and was ruled, controversially, a base hit, breaking up Dallas Keuchel's no-hitter with two outs in the seventh inning. Tough play, but you have to think Carlos Correa makes it if he isn't on the DL.

Angels' Ohtani starts work to get back on mound

Though back in the lineup as a hitter, the Angels hope Shohei Ohtani can continue to rehab his injured UCL and get back on the mound before the end of the season.

Angels general manager Billy Eppler repeated today that none of the doctors he has spoken to at Kerlan-Jobe has recommended Tommy John surgery for Shohei Ohtani. "I can tell you the consensus of those people is to never push a player into surgery."

Trout says 'everything is cool' with Manfred

Manfred: Can't market Trout without his help

Commissioner Rob Manfred said that the only reason Mike Trout isn't more popular is because Trout doesn't market himself: "If he wants to engage and be more active in that area, I think we could help him make his brand really, really big."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

After Mike Trout homered off Jacob deGrom at the All-Star Game, Bryce Harper was asked, from the outfield, whether Trout should be considered the best player in the game. "If you don't," Harper said, "then you're not watching."

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Just call Mike Trout Mr. All-Star. He's already won two All-Star Game MVP awards in his career and he just gave the AL a 2-0 lead as he lines a 1-2 fastball from Jacob deGrom for a home run. The best player in the game, my friends.

A crowd of reporters waited by Mike Trout's locker before tonight's All-Star Game. But they weren't there for him — they were there for the guy whose locker is right next to him: Manny Machado. Later, after Machado had taken a few questions — saying he had heard "nothing" from either the Orioles or his agent — Trout was asked how his All-Star teammate is handling all the trade rumors. "He's handling it. He's gotta be going through some emotions. It's probably tough for him. He doesn't know where he's going to be playing," Trout said. "He knows he's going to be traded but doesn't know where. But I'm sure he wants this thing to be over." As a baseball fan, how much is Trout following the story? "Obviously, when you see one of the big guys in the market get traded, you want to see where he's going. I just wish it was [to] the Angels."

Mike Trout will bat third and play center field for the American League; Matt Kemp will bat fifth and play left field for the National League.
