Angels' Jack Mayfield: On minor-league injured list

Mayfield (undisclosed) was placed on the minor-league 7-day injured list Wednesday. It's not certain what prompted the IL move, though it should be noted that the journeyman infielder hasn't played since July 28. Mayfield had put together a modest five-game hitting streak with Triple-A Salt Lake prior to being placed on the injured list. He's slashed .186/.230/.271 with a home run, six RBI and a stolen base in 74 plate appearances in the majors this season.

Over 24 Triple-A appearances this year, Mayfield has slashed .200/.255/.340 with two homers, 14 RBI, 11 runs and two stolen bases.

Angels' Jack Mayfield: Moves back to minors

The Angels optioned Mayfield to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday. Mayfield became the odd man out for the Angels with the team needing to open up a spot on the 26-man active roster for left-hander Kenny Rosenberg, who was recalled from Salt Lake to start Sunday's series finale in Seattle. During his two-day stay with the Halos, Mayfield went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts.

Angels' Jack Mayfield: Recalled and starting Friday

Mayfield was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday and will bat ninth and play third base against the Mariners. Mayfield was optioned Friday but is back less than a week later with Anthony Rendon shut down for season-ending wrist surgery. Mayfield has slashed .194/.239/.284 in 22 games this season, which doesn't make a case for regular playing time, but he could start at the hot corner against lefties such as Friday's starter Robbie Ray.

Angels' Jack Mayfield: Sent to Triple-A

Mayfield was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake prior to Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against Oakland. He had hit .129 with seven strikeouts and one walk in his last 31 at-bats. Matt Duffy was activated from the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move.

Angels' Jack Mayfield: Returns to big club

The Angels recalled Mayfield from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Though he was optioned to Salt Lake on Friday, Mayfield is eligible to rejoin the Angels on short notice after the team placed Matt Duffy on the COVID-19 injured list prior to Sunday's game against the White Sox. Mayfield should be up with the Angels for the duration of Duffy's absence, but the former is unlikely to see meaningful at-bats while all of Anthony Rendon, David Fletcher, Andrew Velazquez and Tyler Wade are ahead of him in the pecking order for playing time at second base, third base or shortstop.

Angels' Jack Mayfield: Optioned to Triple-A

Mayfield was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Mayfield made the Angels' Opening Day roster this year and appeared in 10 games for the big-league club. He hit .281 with a homer, a triple, a double, six runs and three RBI, but he didn't have consistent playing time and will head to the minors after David Fletcher (hip) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday.

Angels' Jack Mayfield: Retreats to bench

Mayfield is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros. Mayfield drew starts in the infield over the past three contests and went a collective 4-for-12 to extend his hitting streak to seven games dating back to Opening Day. Despite his solid production at the plate when called upon this season, Mayfield looks set to remain in a utility role. Third baseman Anthony Rendon is healthy again after a recent bout with an illness, and Tyler Wade and Andrew Velazquez appear to be manager Joe Maddon's preferred options in the middle infield over Mayfield.

Angels' Jack Mayfield: Clubs solo homer Sunday

Mayfield went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to Houston on Sunday. Mayfield drove a Jose Urquidy pitch over the wall in center field in the second inning to provide the Angels' only run of the contest. The long ball was Mayfield's third straight hit to begin the campaign, though he went 0-for-3 in his remaining plate appearances. The 31-year-old was somewhat surprisingly plugged into the cleanup spot Sunday despite entering the contest with only 12 homers over 401 career big-league at-bats.

Mayfield is starting at third base and hitting fourth Sunday against the Astros, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Angels' Jack Mayfield: Swipes two bags Sunday

Mayfield went 2-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and two stolen bases in Sunday's 7-3 victory versus the Mariners. Mayfield was one of three Angels to knock multiple hits in the season finale, and he plated the team's second run with an infield single in the first inning. The 31-year-old began the campaign in the minors and was DFA'd by both the Angels and Mariners during the season. However, he became a bright spot for Los Angeles after he latched back on with the club in mid-June, eventually claiming a role as the club's starting third baseman. Mayfield collected at least one hit in 11 of his final 12 contests, slashing .280/.315/.400 with a home run, 11 RBI and three stolen bases over that stretch.

Mayfield has now hit safely in three games in a row, and this was the first time he recorded two extra-base hits on the same game in the entire campaign. The shortstop hasn't been much of a threat at the plate of late, though, hitting .200 with a .639 OPS across 20 games this month.
