    Anthony Rendon fan interaction video looked into by MLB

    Major League Baseball is looking into a video circulating on social media that appears to show Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon grab a fan by the shirt through the bleacher guardrails after Thursday night's game in Oakland, a league spokesperson said Friday. Rendon looks to have grabbed the fan's shirt near his chest through the bars of the railing and exchanged words with him before appearing to take a swipe at the bill of the man's ballcap and walking into the tunnel. Angels spokesman Adam Chodzko says the team has no comment. The Angels do not play Friday, but the club expects Rendon to address the video Saturday in the clubhouse before the game against the Oakland Athletics in Oakland.

    Assistant pitching coach Bill Hezel brings high-tech background to Angels' staff

    A case can be made that the best addition to the Angels pitching staff over the winter was a guy who spent four years pitching at small colleges before beginning a career wearing a suit and selling retirement plans. Bill Hezel did not follow the typical path to a major league coaching job, but those who work with him are ecstatic that the Angels hired him away from Driveline to be their assistant pitching coach. “He is awesome,” left-hander Patrick Sandoval said. Left-hander Reid Detmers, who boarded a plane to meet with Hezel at Driveline the day the 2022 season ended, agreed with Sandoval.
