Angels, Dodgers gear up for another weekend series

The Los Angeles Dodgers are ready to unleash Walker Buehler one more time, with the latest version of the right-hander set to return to the major leagues Friday against the Los Angeles Angels.

Pena had two outings in the bullpen earlier this season, but after being recalled June 19, he has made four consecutive starts. He has not lasted more than 5 1/3 innings and threw 76 pitches last Friday against the Dodgers when he gave up just two runs on three hits.

He might just have the best chance at run support of the three Angels starters pitching on the weekend. The Angels’ offense fares much better against a right-hander such as Buehler. They will get lefties Clayton Kershaw and Rich Hill on Saturday and Sunday.

The Angels are 8-17 when an opponent started a left-hander. They won a game against a lefty starter Thursday, but the Mariners’ James Paxton was pitching with a stiff back and lasted five batters.

We’ve looked at everything and historically, we have some guys that are really, really dynamic hitters against left-handed pitching, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. They just haven’t really gotten into a groove for whatever reason.

While Buehler will be making his first appearance against the Angels, Pena has faced the Dodgers three times, posting a 2.16 ERA In 8 1/3 innings.

The Dodgers are 4-3 in interleague play this season, while the Angels are 5-5.

Dwyane Wade, who is also a Heat stalwart and Dennis Byrd Youth Jersey a free agent this summer, is still weighing whether or not to play a 16th NBA season as well. He recently said he wants to stay with the Heat if he does come back next season. Haslem told Navarro he plans to talk with Wade about what they may do next.

Additionally, Haslem said he, Wade and former Heat and current Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James spent time together before the start of the 2018 NBA Finals. A potential James return Denzel Perryman Jersey — he can opt out and become an unrestricted free agent this summer, too — was not part of the conversation (yet) Haslem said.

I spent some time with Bron, Haslem said. He was in Miami. Me, him and Dwyane got together and we spent some time together, just chopped it up. [A return to Miami] wasn’t part of the conversation. Obviously he was getting ready for the NBA Finals. But there are great pieces here. We all know the city loves him. We all know what he’s capable of doing, the organization. I would love to have him.

But as a friend I support LeBron in any decision he makes. So we’ll see. Am I going to be a part of the recruiting process? Hell yeah. If we talk I’m going to throw it out there. But you just never know.
