The Angels finished the season 77-85 and 18 games back of the American League West division champion Houston Astros. The Halos also ended 15 games out of the two A.L. Wild Card slots. This year marked the sixth consecutive losing record for the franchise. The Angels won the A.L. West with 98 wins in 2014, (Trout’s only playoff appearance), but got swept in the A.L. Division Series by the Kansas City Royals. Trout only played 36 games this past season due to a strained right calf.
