Season summary

From the start of the season the Angels battled the Astros for the division tittle. They were in second place for the majority of the season between Astros (1st) and Rangers (3rd).

In early July, the baseball world focused their attention on the Angels following a report from Ken Rosenthal that general manager Jerry DiPoto and manager Mike Scioscia were at odds over the use of analytics in the clubhouse. Two days later, DiPoto cleaned out his Angels office and resigned.

Former Angels general manager Bill Stoneman, who hired Scioscia before the 2000 season, was named interim GM.

In July, the Angels briefly held 1st place in the AL West before losing 19 games in August.

The Deciding Game

On October 4, 2015, the final game of the season for the Angels and Rangers, the Angels lost against the Rangers, preventing them from entering the playoffs. If they had won, they would have entered a tiebreaker game with the Astros. If that was won, they would have entered The Wildcard game against the Yankees
