There’s a lot to digest from the wild 16-inning game between the Orioles and Angels. The Orioles started with an opener and ended up using an outfielder to collect the save. The Angels were stretched so thin that they used their Friday night starter. Not counting Orioles outfielder Stevie Wilkerson, both teams used a combined 19 pitchers.
We still don’t know who will start on Friday for the Angels and potentially there will be a number of roster moves made because of this. We may be able to take advantage of this over the next few days.
