  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Shakes off leg injury

    Davidson (leg) retired two batters and allowed one earned run on two hits in his most recent relief appearance Friday in the Angels' 5-4 win over the Twins.

    Davidson had exited his previous relief outing last Tuesday against the Orioles after being struck on the leg by a line drive, but he avoided a serious injury and was available out of the bullpen after just a couple days of rest. The southpaw is expected to serve as a middle-innings or mop-up option out of the bullpen throughout the season.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Exits after being hit in leg

    Davidson was hit in the leg by a line drive in the sixth inning of Tuesday's game against the Orioles and forced to exit, Andy Kostka of reports.

    The line drive was hit by Ryan McKenna and carried a 106.2 mph exit velocity. Tucker went 1.2 innings while allowing two earned runs with four strikeouts before leaving. Andrew Wantz has taken over on the mound.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Takes big hit to ERA

    Davidson tossed two-thirds of an inning against Texas on Saturday, allowing seven runs on seven hits and one walk.

    The game wasn't completely out of reach for the Angels when Davidson entered in the ninth inning, as they were down 3-0 at the time. By the end of the frame, the team had deployed position player Brett Phillips to the mound after Davidson allowed seven straight batters to reach base with two outs. Five of those came around to score while the the southpaw was in the contest, and two more crossed the plate after he departed, resulting in an unsightly seven runs charged to his final tally. Davidson entered Saturday with a 2.25 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over seven appearances -- those numbers are now 5.94 and 1.62, respectively.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Sticking in bullpen, for now

    Davidson was bypassed for the start in Wednesday's game against the Nationals, with the Angels instead activating Griffin Canning (groin) from the 15-day injured list to have him take the hill, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Davidson opened the season in the bullpen but had been expected to enter the rotation when the Angels first required a sixth starter this week. However, with Canning progressing quicker than expected from the groin issue that forced him to the IL and then building up to five innings in his lone minor-league rehab start last Thursday, the Angels are opting to keep Davidson in the bullpen for the time being as a multi-inning option. The decision to go with Canning over Davidson for the sixth spot in the rotation became an easier one Monday, when Davidson was needed to cover three frames in relief after Jose Suarez lasted just four innings.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Earns four-inning save

    Davidson picked up a save Saturday against Oakland, hurling four scoreless innings during which he allowed three hits and one walk while striking out three batters.

    Davidson will presumably be the Angels' sixth starter the first time the team needs a pitcher to fill that role, but with the Angels getting a day off Friday, the left-hander was tabbed to stretch out in long relief for his season debut. He got through four frames on 41 pitches (25 strikes) and looked good in keeping the Athletics off the scoreboard. Fantasy managers shouldn't read into Davidson's save Saturday as any indication of him jumping into the Angels' unsettled closer situation, so those who roster him for his potential future starts and happened to have him in their lineup this weekend should see this as a happy, but probably one-time, bonus.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Makes Opening Day roster

    Angels manager Phil Nevin announced after Saturday's exhibition game against the Dodgers that Davidson will be a part of the Opening Day roster, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Davidson will pitch out of the bullpen to begin the year, but he could also be the sixth starter for the club when that becomes necessary. The left-hander is going to be part of the squad at least in part because Griffin Canning is battling a groin injury. Davidson struggled mightily in his limited time with both Atlanta and Los Angeles in 2022 -- the latter appearances coming after he was dealt for Raisel Iglesias at the deadline -- but he will have a chance to stick with the Los Angeles staff to begin 2023.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Competing for final rotation spot

    Davidson and Griffin Canning are battling for a role as the Angels' sixth starter, Adrian Garro of reports.

    The two hurlers have been battling it out throughout the spring, and Canning has put up better numbers, posting a 1.32 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 13:3 K:BB over 13.2 innings versus Davidson's 5.19 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 20:4 K:BB across 17.1 frames. One thing working in Davidson's favor, however, is that he is out of minor-league options while Canning is not. Whichever pitcher wins the competition may not see action in a starting role right away, as Angels general manager Perry Minasian said Tuesday that the team is "going to take it day by day, but there's a possibility that sixth spot maybe we don't use it right off the bat ... and if we don't use him right off the bat, he's in the bullpen and provides length there," per Garro.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Gets call for Cactus opener

    Davidson will start the Angels' Cactus League opener Saturday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Davidson is completing for the sixth spot in the Angels' rotation, although manager Phil Nevin has indication his sixth starter will serve more of a swingman role this year. The left-hander is out of options, so he seems likely to make the Opening Day roster in some capacity. Davidson's competition this spring includes Jaime Barria, Griffin Canning and Chris Rodriguez.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Walks five in no-decision

    Davidson allowed three runs on three hits and five walks while striking out three over 4.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Rangers on Sunday.

    Davidson threw only 39 of 77 pitches for strikes in an inefficient final start of the season. He was charged with all three of the runs on his line after fading in the fifth inning. The southpaw surrendered 17 runs across 17.2 innings over his last four outings of the campaign. He ends the campaign with a 2-7 record, 6.75 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 33:35 K:BB over 52 innings across 12 appearances (11 starts) between the Angels and Atlanta.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Tosses five innings in loss

    Davidson (1-5) took the loss Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits with three punchouts over five innings against the Rangers.

    Davidson was the victim of a few timely hits Wednesday, as three of the five baserunners he allowed came around to score. The southpaw's inability to strand runners is emblematic of his season as a whole; if he had enough innings to qualify, his 65.2 percent LOB percentage would be the lowest among starting pitchers this season. He will carry a 6.80 ERA into his next start.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Rejoining rotation Wednesday

    Davidson is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Rangers in Arlington, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Though previously listed Mike Mayers as a new addition to the rotation this week, Davidson will end up retaining his role as the Angels' No. 6 starter. Davidson doesn't seem to have much job security, however, as the Angels skipped his turn through the rotation this past weekend after he lasted just two innings while allowing four earned runs his last time out Sept. 11 in Houston. Since being acquired from Atlanta on Aug. 2, Davidson has gone 1-4 with a 7.24 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in 27.1 innings.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Won't start this weekend

    Davison isn't in line to make a start during the Angels' four-game home series with the Mariners that begins Friday.

    After making his most recent start Sept. 11 in Houston, Davidson's turn in the six-man rotation was expected to come up again this weekend versus Seattle, but the Angels will instead use Thursday's off day to push the lefty to the back of their pitching schedule. Unless the Angels elect to remove Davidson from the rotation entirely, he'll likely make his next start Tuesday or Wednesday in Texas. The southpaw could still be available for a relief appearance in one of the first two games of the series with Seattle this weekend.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Four runs over two innings in loss

    Davidson (1-4) took the loss Sunday, allowing four runs on five hits and one walk over two innings in a 12-4 loss to Houston. He struck out two.

    After recording two scoreless innings to start the game, disaster unfolded for Davidson and the Angels in the third. Mauricio Dubon led off the inning with a home run, and Jose Altuve and Jeremy Pena each recorded singles before Davidson hit Yordan Alvarez to load the bases. Interim manager Phil Nevin then pulled Davidson for Mike Mayers, who surrendered a grand slam to Alex Bregman. Davidson has failed to reach five innings in five of his 10 starts this season and has allowed 22 runs in 27.1 innings since being traded to the Angels. He will carry a 6.96 ERA and 1.78 WHIP into his next start.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Surrenders seven runs in loss

    Davidson (2-5) took the loss during Sunday's 9-1 defeat at the hands of the Astros, allowing seven runs on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 6.1 innings.

    Davidson pitched well aside from a five-run second inning during which he surrendered six baserunners, which was enough to sink the lefty. The 26-year-old was efficient in firing 62 of 88 pitches for strikes with 10 whiffs but still issued multiple walks for the third straight outing. Davidson carries a 6.42 ERA and 1.72 WHIP into his next appearance.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Effectively wild Sunday

    Davidson did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing one run on three hits and five walks over four innings in an 8-3 win over the Blue Jays. He struck out five.

    The only damage on the scoreboard against Davidson came on a Matt Chapman double in the fourth inning, but Davidson was all over the place as he allowed five walks on the day. In fact, he was pulled from the game after allowing a walk in the fifth inning. This was his second effort with five walks this season, and he has failed to record fewer than two in any single start. The southpaw will look to find his command in his next start, which is scheduled for next weekend against Houston.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Throws five innings in loss

    Davidson (1-2) took the loss Monday, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks over five innings in a 2-1 loss to the Rays. He struck out two.

    The southpaw made it through three innings unscathed but ran into trouble in the fourth inning as the Rays scored after recording three hits and a walk, and again in the fifth on a solo shot off the bat of Randy Arozarena. In three starts since being traded to the Angels, Davidson has surrendered 10 runs over 15 innings, but six of those came in his first start. His two strikeouts Monday were indicative of his broader struggles to strike batters out as he owns a K/9 of just 5.0 in 25 innings in the majors this season. He next lines up to face Houston this weekend.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Victorious in quality start

    Davidson (2-3) earned the win during Sunday's 4-2 victory over Minnesota, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk with three strikeouts in six innings.

    Davidson served up a two-run shot to Byron Buxton in the first inning but bounced back to keep Minnesota quiet the rest of the way. The 26-year-old rebounded from issuing five walks in his most recent start Aug. 7 to fire 61 of 87 pitches for strikes, including eight of the swinging variety. Davidson has surrendered eight runs on 16 baserunners with four strikeouts in 10 innings across two starts with the Angels, and he's scheduled to pitch again next weekend against Detroit.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Draws another start

    Davidson is scheduled to start Sunday's home game against the Twins, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Despite issuing five walks and allowing six earned runs over four innings in his Angels debut last weekend in Seattle, Davidson will receive a second turn through the rotation. Even dating back to his time with Atlanta earlier this season, Davidson has struggled to consistently find the strike zone, as he posted a 17.6 percent walk rate in 15.1 innings over his other four appearances in the majors prior to being dealt to the Angels at the trade deadline. Until he shows improved control, the left-hander will be difficult to trust as a streaming option in the majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Struggles in team debut

    Davidson (1-3) took the loss Sunday versus the Mariners. He allowed six runs on six hits and five walks while striking out one in four innings.

    Davidson's biggest mistake was a third-inning grand slam to Jesse Winker. This was Davidson's Angels debut after he was included as part of the return that sent Raisel Iglesias to Atlanta. Through 19.1 innings in five appearances (four starts), Davidson has struggled to a 7.91 ERA, 2.02 WHIP and 11:18 K:BB. He may stick in the Angels' six-man rotation, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him link up with Triple-A Salt Lake if his performance doesn't improve. If he gets another start, it would likely be at home against the Twins next weekend.

  • Angels' Tucker Davidson: Added to big-league roster

    Davidson was added to the Angels' major-league roster on Wednesday and said he'll enter the starting rotation during this weekend's four-game series against the Mariners, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Davidson was acquired from Atlanta on Tuesday and will quickly enter the rotation for his new team. The 26-year-old last pitched Sunday at Triple-A, so he could pitch on full rest during Saturday's doubleheader or Sunday's series finale in Seattle. The left-hander has given up 11 runs across 15.1 big-league innings this year and has a 4.59 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 96:24 K:BB over 15 starts in the minors.
