Los Angeles Angels at Toronto Blue Jays

When and Where: Monday, June 17, Rogers Centre, Toronto, Ont., 7:07 p.m. EDT.

The Los Angeles Angels are set to get another piece of their offensive puzzle back Monday night when Justin Upton is expected to make his season debut versus the Toronto Blue Jays.

Angels hope Upton can bring pop to lineup

Upton, who has recorded back-to-back 30-homer seasons after belting 30 in 2018, has been sidelined since March with a sprained left big toe. His return gives Los Angeles a potent 2-3-4 part of its lineup that features Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani hitting ahead of the slugger.

“It’ll be good to have him back,” manager Brad Ausmus told The Los Angeles Times before Sunday’s 6-5 loss to Tampa Bay. “Obviously, he’s been an offensive performer for a long time. It’s a big bat to add to our lineup.”

Upton’s 178 home runs from 2013-18 rank tied for ninth among all players in that span. The Angels are in the middle of the pack in the American League in home runs with 101 in 72 games, paced by Trout’s 18. Ohtani, though, has eight in just 33 games since recovering from Tommy John surgery and being able to serve as designated hitter.

Los Angeles has yet to announce a starting pitcher as it enters the second leg of its three-city, 11-game road swing. Sunday’s loss gave the Angels a split of their four-game set with the Rays.

The last time this spot in the rotation came up, the Angels opted to use Cam Bedrosian as an opener, but he made relief appearances Thursday and Saturday, which may preclude him from reprising that role.
