Relief pitcher Trevor Gott made his major-league debut for the Angels in their 8-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Sunday at Angel Stadium. Gott’s one inning of hitless relief in the ninth, striking out one, was about the only highlight for the team.
Afterward, Angels manager Mike Scioscia talked briefly about what he saw from Gott, who was throwing in the high 90s.
“There’s no doubt he has an exciting young arm and we saw it out there this afternoon,” Scioscia said of Gott, a 22-year-old right-hander. “And like I said, we’ll try to get Trevor to get his feet on the ground and see where he fits in. But his long-range potential is definitely as a back-end guy in a really good bullpen. So we’ll just see how he develops.”
Gott is listed as 6-foot, 190 pounds. He posted an ERA of 3.20 with 20 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings pitched at Double-A Arkansas this season. He had an ERA of 0.00 with 10 strikeouts in 8 1/3 innings pitched over seven appearances at Triple-A Salt Lake City.
