Tucker Davidson returned to a mound with a fresh look, and the results were encouraging.
Engel gave the left batsman after 26-years of extra days in the middle of the start
he looked to return it to his delivery in an effort to increase control.
Davidson did not run a batsman in five rounds, the first time he did in a career-high 16 of a main league match.
Davidson was left behind by running with the Angels
but the Angels bullied after a 7-2 loss to the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.
Davidson, 26, is one of a handful rated for next year's role, either as the depth of rotation or in intimidation.
While there must be evidence that they have a big league thrower, one of the main problems is their handling.
Davidson scored 6.3 hits per nine innings this season, contributing to his ERA of 6.96.
He attacks with only 60% of the field, less than the main league average of 63%.
