The 2018 Los Angeles Angels' season is the 58th season of the Los Angeles Angels franchise and the 53rd in Anaheim (all of them at Angel Stadium). The Angels began the season on March 29 against the Oakland Athletics and will end the season on September 30 also against the A's.

Offseason

On December 9, 2017, the Angels signed RHP/OF Shohei Ohtani from Japan to a minor league contract with a $2.315 million signing bonus. He made the major league roster.[1][2]

On December 13, 2017, the Angels traded minor leaguers Troy Montgomery and Wilkel Hernandez to the Detroit Tigers for 2B Ian Kinsler. Two days later, the Angels signed Zack Cozart to a three-year, $38 million contract. Cozart is expected to play third base.[3]

On February 21, 2018, the Angels acquired Jabari Blash from the New York Yankees in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.[4]
