Angels' Davis Daniel: Earns first win
Daniel (1-1) picked up his first big-league win in Friday's 5-1 victory over Oakland, yielded two hits and a walk over five shutout innings out of the bullpen.
Daniel finished the game after starter Chase Silseth allowed one run through four frames. The rookie right-hander threw 47 of 61 pitches for strikes and worked around the only threat he faced in the ninth inning. Since being promoted to the big leagues earlier this month, the 26-year-old made three extended relief appearances for the Angels, registering a 2.19 ERA and 1.30 WHIP across 12.1 frames....

Angels' Davis Daniel: Handed first loss
Daniel (0-1) took the loss Friday in the Angels' 8-6 loss to the Twins, allowing three runs on three hits and five walks over 4.1 relief innings. He struck out six.
The 26-year-old right-hander took over for opener Jose Suarez in the second inning and was handed his first MLB loss after serving up a solo homer to Alex Kirilloff in the sixth. Daniel also allowed a pair of runs in the fourth inning while struggling with his command, throwing just 48 strikes on 91 pitches. He has now walked eight batters in 7.1 career MLB innings....

Angels' Davis Daniel: Officially recalled
The Angels recalled Daniel from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday to pitch against Minnesota.
Davis' last appearance came on Sept. 13 with Salt Lake, where he surrendered two runs on two hits and seven walks over the course of four innings. He has yet to allow a run in the majors through three frames, but recent issues with command could cause him to get into trouble as he pitches bulk innings Friday. Aaron Loup (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Davis Daniel: Will be recalled, pitch Friday
The Angels will recall Daniel from Triple-A Salt Lake to pitch Friday in Minnesota, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
He could be used as a traditional starter or as a bulk reliever behind an opener, but either way, Daniel is slated to handle most of the innings for the Halos. Tyler Anderson had been scheduled to take the hill Friday but is being pushed back due to a knee injury. Daniel tossed three scoreless relief innings in his major-league debut earlier this month....

Angels' Davis Daniel: Demoted to Salt Lake
The Angels optioned Daniel to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
A day after tossing three scoreless frames out of the bullpen in his major-league debut, Daniel will head back to the minors and could finish the season in Triple-A. Outfielder Jordyn Adams was recalled from Salt Lake in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Davis Daniel: Solid in big-league debut
Daniel pitched three scoreless relief innings Thursday in the Angels' 3-2 win over the Guardians, allowing two hits while issuing three walks and striking out one batter.
Despite having not pitched in the high minors this season after spending most of the campaign on the Angels' 60-day injured list while recovering from a shoulder strain, Daniel got the call to the big club Thursday after he posted a 1.77 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 28:5 K:BB across 20.1 innings over his final four rehab starts with Single-A Inland Empire. The right-hander was a bit wild with three walks and a wild pitch in his major-league debut, but he worked out of a few jams to hold the Guardians scoreless while throwing a team-high 66 pitches in a bullpen game for Los Angeles. It's unclear if Daniel will remain in a bulk-relief role moving forward, and it's possible that he heads back to the minors whenever Chase Silseth (concussion) is able to return from the 7-day injured list....

Angels' Davis Daniel: Called up, won't start Thursday
The Angels recalled Daniel from Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.
Daniel was expected to replace Chase Silseth (concussion) in the Angels' six-man rotation in Thursday's series opener with the Guardians, but the Halos will instead open the game with Jhonathan Diaz, whose contract was selected from Triple-A as well. The Angels could still choose to deploy Daniel in tandem with Diaz, given that Daniel is capable of offering plenty of length after working at least five innings in each of his last three minor-league appearances. After opening the season on the Angels' 60-day injured list while recovering from a shoulder injury, Daniel hasn't pitched above the Single-A level in 2023, but he was recently activated and had been scheduled to start for Salt Lake on Thursday until the big club required an extra arm. Daniel looked dominant over his six rehab outings between the rookie-level Arizona Complex League and Single-A Inland Empire, striking out 37 and issuing just five walks while pitching to a 1.78 ERA and 0.95 WHIP across 25.1 innings....

Angels' Davis Daniel: On way to big leagues
The Angels will recall Daniel from Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Blum implies that Daniel is likely to start Thursday against the Guardians, as the Angels currently don't have a starter listed for the series opener. Daniel has been limited to just six rehab starts this season after coming back from a shoulder injury, but he's been excellent in those outings with a 1.78 ERA and 37:5 K:BB over 25.1 innings between the rookie-level Arizona Complex League and Single-A Inland Empire. He had been slated to start Thursday for Salt Lake, but the Halos have a need for a sixth starter, so he'll take the ball with the big club instead. Daniel was on the Angels' active roster briefly last season but didn't make an appearance, so he'll be making his major-league debut Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Davis Daniel: Activated, optioned to Triple-A
The Angels reinstated Daniel (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list Thursday and optioned him to Triple-A Salt Lake.
Daniel logged a 1.78 ERA and 0.95 WHIP alongside a 37:5 K:BB during his rehab assignment across rookie and High-A ball. He's been on the injured list since February due to a strained right shoulder, and the Angels will allow him to keep developing in Triple-A rather than adding him to their major-league rotation. He put up a 4.49 ERA and 1.21 WHIP across 102.1 innings with Triple-A Salt Lake in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Davis Daniel: Strikes out 10 in rehab start
Daniel (shoulder) struck out 10 and allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits and three walks over 5.1 innings in his latest rehab start Tuesday for Single-A Inland Empire.
Daniel made the sixth start of his rehab assignment Tuesday and his fourth in a row in the California League, where he's produced a 1.77 ERA and 0.98 WHIP while striking out 28 over 20.1 innings. With the right-hander's 30-day rehab window nearing its end, he should be activated from the Angels' 60-day injured list within the next few days. However, since the 26-year-old right-hander has yet to make his MLB debut, the Angels may not be willing to include him in the big-league rotation right away and could instead option him to either Double-A Rocket City or Triple-A Salt Lake upon his reinstatement....

Angels' Davis Daniel: Another gem on rehab assignment
Daniel (shoulder) struck out six while allowing two hits and no walks over six scoreless innings in his latest rehab start Tuesday with Single-A Inland Empire.
Daniel remains on the Angels' 60-day injured list, but his 30-day rehab window will come to a close at the end of the month and he's expected to soon be activated and assigned to either Triple-A Salt Lake or Double-A Rocket City. The right-hander has had little trouble regaining his command and control as he works his way back from the shoulder strain that has sidelined him since spring training. Through five rehab outings between stops with Inland Empire and the Angels' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate, Daniel has submitted an 0.90 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 27:2 K:BB over 20 innings....

Angels' Davis Daniel: Hits five innings in latest start
Daniel (shoulder) struck out seven and scattered four hits and one walk over five shutout innings in his most recent rehab start Wednesday for Single-A Inland Empire.
Daniel, who has resided on the Angels' 60-day injured list all season with a right shoulder strain, has now completed four rehab starts. After beginning his assignment in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League on Aug. 1 and tossing two frames that day, Daniel has since added an inning to his workloads in each of his subsequent three starts, all of which have come at Inland Empire. He'll likely eventually move on to a higher-level affiliate before his 30-day rehab window comes to a close, but expect the Angels to option him to the minors rather than keeping him on the 26-man active roster once he's reinstated from the IL....

Angels' Davis Daniel: Begins rehab assignment
Daniel (shoulder) began a minor-league rehab stint with the Angels' Arizona Complex League team Aug. 1, and he's thus far allowed one run on four hits and posted a 9:0 K:BB over five innings spanning two starts.
Daniel opened the regular season on the 60-day IL due to a right shoulder strain, and he only recently began pitching in minor-league games. The results have so far been impressive despite the level of competition, and in Daniel's most recent outing he struck out seven batters in three scoreless frames. The 26-year-old has been a starter throughout his minor-league tenure, but he'd likely work out of the bullpen if given the chance to make his major-league debut before the end of the current campaign....

Angels' Davis Daniel: Placed on 60-day IL
Daniel was placed on the 60-day injured list by the Angels on Thursday due to a right shoulder strain, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
This move clears out a 40-man roster spot for left-hander Matt Moore, whose one-year, $7.55 million deal with the Angels is now official. Daniel posted a 4.49 ERA and 83:32 K:BB over 102.1 innings last season at Triple-A Salt Lake and won't be much of a factor in the early part of the 2023 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Davis Daniel: Returns to Triple-A
Daniel was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake following Sunday's game against the Mets.
Daniel failed to make his big-league debut during his brief stint with the Angels, which lasted all of two days. The club has yet to make a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Davis Daniel: Contract selected
Daniel's contract was selected by the Angels on Saturday.
Daniel doesn't come with a ton of prospect pedigree, as he was the 211th overall pick in the 2019 draft and looks like a back-end starter at best according to his scouting reports. He recorded a 3.64 ERA in nine starts for Triple-A Salt Lake this season, though that came with a modest 19.3 percent strikeout rate. He's pitched almost exclusively as a starter in the minors, but it looks like he'll be a reliever for now, as the Angels don't have a hole in their rotation at the moment.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Davis Daniel: Sent back to minor-league camp
The Angels reassigned Daniel to their minor-league camp Monday.
Though he netted an invitation for big-league camp, Daniel wasn't a realistic candidate to break camp with the Angels with a number of other pitchers ahead of him in the pecking order for back-end spots in the club's six-man rotation. Still, Daniel will be a pitcher worth tracking as he likely heads back to Triple-A Salt Lake to begin 2022. Though his initial taste of the Triple-A level didn't go well last season -- he gave up 24 earned runs on 37 hits (including seven home runs) over 21 innings -- the 24-year-old righty was dominant for Double-A Rocket City (2.68 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 66:8 K:BB in 47 frames) prior to his promotion to Salt Lake....

Angels' Davis Daniel: Invited to big-league camp
Daniel will serve as a non-roster invitee during spring training in 2022.
Daniel advanced to Triple-A Salt Lake in 2021, but he faced some struggles against the improved competition and unforgiving ballparks of Triple-A West. The right-hander made five appearances (four starts) and posted a 10.29 ERA and 2.05 WHIP in 21 innings. He'll now have a chance to develop with the big-league coaching staff this spring and will likely be in the mix to make his major-league debut at some point in 2022 as long as he can display improved results with the Bees....
