The Angels spent the offseason retooling their roster in the hopes of returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2014. After re-signing Justin Upton, landing Shohei Ohtani and adding Zack Cozart and Ian Kinsler, many thought they had assembled enough talent around Mike Trout to contend in 2018.
Bryce Harper was the star of the show Monday night, but even the Nationals superstar knows who the best player in baseball is: Mike Trout.
The ball wasn't flying out of Nationals Park quite as frequently as it did during Bryce Harper's heroic hometown homer binge a night earlier, but it was flying all the same in a dinger-driven, record-breaking 89th All-Star Game presented by Mastercard on Tuesday night.
Tyler Skaggs (7-5, 2.57 ERA) gets the start as the Angels open the second half with a matchup against the Astros on Friday at 7:07 p.m. PT at Angel Stadium. Houston will call on Dallas Keuchel.

Trout, the Angels' lone All-Star this season, enters his seventh All-Star Game on Tuesday simply trying to take in the moment.

Many of the shortcomings that hindered the Angels over their disappointing first half cropped up yet again in Sunday afternoon's 5-3 loss to the Dodgers in their Freeway Series finale at Dodger Stadium.
Marte snaps bat in half, homers next at-bat
The 20th edition of the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game had no shortage of big moments, with the two sides combining for eight home runs -- doubling the previous Futures Game record -- as Team USA outslugged the World, 10-6, on All-Star Sunday at Nationals Park. Here is a recap of each player's performance, with a breakdown of each club's representatives.
Shohei Ohtani began his first MLB season as a two-way player for the Angels, but he'll head into his first All-Star break exclusively as a hitter due to a Grade 2 sprain of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.
Kole Calhoun hammered a go-ahead home run off Kenley Jansen to lift the Angels to a 5-4 win in 10 innings over the Dodgers and even the Freeway Series at Dodger Stadium on Saturday. It kept the Halos from squandering starter Andrew Heaney's solid 6 1/3 innings of three-run ball (two earned).
The Angels have tended to sit Shohei Ohtani against tough left-handed starters this season, but he had an encouraging at-bat against a lefty in the ninth inning of Friday's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers.
One day after homering twice to tie Ken Griffey Jr. for sixth place on the all-time list with 630, Angels first baseman Albert Pujols landed on the 10-day disabled list with left knee inflammation.
Kole Calhoun is heating up at the plate. Calhoun homered twice off Dodgers right-hander Walker Buehler to give the Angels a 2-1 lead in the Freeway Series opener on Friday night at Dodger Stadium.
Trout's teammates wear his face shirts
Albert Pujols launched the 629th and 630th home runs of his career to lead the Angels to an 11-2 rout of the Mariners on Thursday night at Angel Stadium, tying Ken Griffey Jr. for sixth place on the all-time list. Pujols collected the milestone blast with a solo home run off Nick Rumbelow in the sixth inning. He pulled within one of Griffey with a two-run shot off left-hander James Paxton in the first inning. Pujols finished 3-for-4 with three RBIs, tying Rickey Henderson for 25th place on the all-time hits list (3,055).
Garrett Richards may have thrown his final pitch for the Angels. The 30-year-old right-hander said Thursday that he has decided to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery to repair the damaged ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow.
With less than three weeks until the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline, things are heating up.
The Angels' vulnerability to left-handed pitchers was exposed yet again on Wednesday night, as they were shut out, 3-0, by southpaw Marco Gonzales and the Mariners to even their three-game series at Angel Stadium.
Trout's face omnipresent on fans at Trout Shirt Night
Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun homered to help the Angels erase an early three-run deficit and emerge with a 9-3 win over the Mariners in Tuesday's series opener at Angel Stadium. Mitch Haniger launched a three-run shot off right-hander Garrett Richards to give the Mariners a 3-0 lead just three batters into the game, but the Angels tied it up in the second and took the lead for good in the fourth, when they scored four runs in the frame.
Shohei Ohtani has been one of baseball's best hitters at driving the ball to the center of the field. His game-winning home run against the Dodgers on Sunday night was just the latest example.
Shohei Ohtani crushed a tiebreaking pinch-hit home run in the seventh inning to lift the Halos to a 4-3 win over the Dodgers in their Freeway Series finale at Angel Stadium on Sunday. Yasiel Puig hit a three-run homer in the second for the Dodgers, then left with an oblique strain after a swing in the fifth. He's likely headed to the DL.
Nick Tropeano is one step closer to returning to the Angels' rotation after tossing five scoreless innings in a rehab start with Class A Advanced Inland Empire on Saturday. Tropeano, who landed on the disabled list on June 15 with right shoulder inflammation, allowed only two hits, walked none and struck out four in the 52-pitch outing.
Mike Trout homered and went 3-for-4, but the Angels were unable to do further damage in a 3-1 loss to the Dodgers.
Seven years ago, Mike Trout made his MLB debut
Shohei Ohtani is best known for his power arm and his power bat, but those skills often overshadow another one of his elite tools: his speed.
The Angels scored two runs off Kenley Jansen in the bottom of the ninth and rallied for a 3-2 win over the Dodgers in Friday night's Freeway Series opener at Angel Stadium. The Angels entered the ninth trailing, 2-1, before Shohei Ohtani drew a two-out walk off Jansen. Ohtani then stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error by Yasmani Grandal, setting up David Fletcher's game-tying RBI single to left field. Ian Kinsler then blooped a single to right field, prompting Fletcher to advance from first to third. Third-base coach Dino Ebel held up Fletcher at third, but Yasiel Puig uncorked an errant throw to the plate that got past Grandal, allowing Fletcher to score the winning run.
The Angels activated infielder Jefry Marte off the disabled list and optioned outfielder Jabari Blash to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday ahead of their series finale against the Mariners.
