2021 Fantasy Outlook
Sandoval's chances of making the 2020 Opening Day roster increased after new Angels manager Joe Maddon announced plans for a six-man rotation. However, Sandoval was diagnosed with COVID-19 and was late to summer camp, putting the spot in jeopardy. He was able to catch up and served as the sixth starter around a couple trips to the alternate training facility when a sixth starter wasn't needed. For the year, Sandoval struggled with homers, allowing 10 in just 36.2 innings despite inducing grounders at a 55.3% clip. Sandoval altered his pitch mix, throwing more sliders in lieu of his curveball and changeup. His slider and change are thrown with similar velocity -- only eight-mph slower than his four-seamer which may help explain the homers as batters are better able to sit on a pitch. Sandoval is still developing, but it appears he's capped at a back-end starter, useful as a streamer. Read Past Outlooks

September 1, 2021
Sandoval (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Sandoval was ruled out for the rest of the season last week, so it was only a matter of time before he was moved to the 60-day IL to open up a spot on the 40-man roster. The left-hander took a step forward in 2021 and finished the campaign with a 3.62 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 94:36 K:BB across 87 innings.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Sandoval made his big-league debut in early August and held down a rotation spot for the rest of the season despite largely mediocre results. His 24.9 K% was strong, but it came with a poor 11.2 BB%. A 21.4% HR/FB rate also held him back and indicates potential positive regression going forward, while his 4.02 xFIP paints a fairly optimistic picture of what he's been able to do thus far. His fastball averaged 93 mph (fine for a southpaw) and he pairs it with a swing-and-miss changeup, a high-spin curveball and fourth-pitch slider. Even with the unconvincing start to his career, he enters 2020 poised to either break camp in the rotation or serve as the next man up in the case of an injury, and injuries typically hit this rotation harder than most. His command issues make him a WHIP liability, but he should be a solid source of strikeouts if he gets the innings.
