The training is set to begin on Wednesday, July 1 as that’s the date the MLB has set for teams to begin preparations in their respective local markets.
Blair Field is expected to be the location for extra players the Angels have added to their roster due to the MLB season being cut short to just 60 games, rather than the usual 162 in a normal season. The MLB has allowed teams to have a roster of 60 players instead of the normal allocation of 40, but the Angels currently have 55.
The MLB season is looking at an opening start date of July 23-24.
