The Angels announced that they have selected outfielder Scott Schebler and designated fellow outfielder Jon Jay for naming. The team also recalled infielder Luis Rengifo.

Schebler had a decent roll as a member of the Reds from 2016 -1 8, a 1,243 -plate appearance span in which he offered approximately league-average production with a. 248/.323 /. 457 wire( 102 wRC +) and 56 home run. His best effort as a influence hitter came during a 30 -HR showing in 2017, though both his sound at the plate and his playing time have tailed off since then. As a Red and Brave from 2019 -2 0, Schebler exclusively amassed 95 plateful images, 94 of which came in the first of those seasons. He batted a woeful. 123/.253 /. 222 with two HRs that year.

Thanks to his recent struggles, Schebler had to settle for a minor league contract with the Angels over the winter. For now, he’ll supplant Jay as a sub for the Angels’ starting adjustment of Mike Trout, Jared Walsh and Justin Upton.

Jay was also a minor league pickup for the Angels, but the 36 -year-old couldn’t take advantage of his MLB opportunity early this season. He exited 1-for-8 with a single and two strikeouts before the Angels designated him.
