Break up the Angels? They broke, but haven't wavered

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 12:05:00 PDT

Last rites were administered to the Angels on May 29, the day they learned that star center fielder Mike Trout would need surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb and miss six to eight weeks.

The rotation was already in tatters, having lost ace Garrett Richards to a right biceps strain...


Angels rally for 10-5 win over Yankees with some heady play

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 23:00:00 PDT

Thursday was the kind of night at the ballpark that prompted psychological talk of all kinds. The Angels relished in the discomfort they created for their opponents, the New York Yankees. They cherished their own fortitude to recover from a four-run deficit and win 10-5 at Yankee Stadium. And they...


Angels' Shoemaker returns to Orange County for further tests on his injured forearm

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 19:00:00 PDT

Matt Shoemaker’s recovery from a forearm strain has stalled. Hopeful as of Wednesday that the right-hander could start Sunday at Boston, the Angels on Thursday sent Shoemaker back to Orange County for further evaluation and additional testing by team doctors.

“I think it’s moving in the right direction,”...


Yankees take advantage of Ricky Nolasco, beat Angels 8-4

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 22:50:00 PDT

It was an intimidating set of circumstances. The American League leader in home runs allowed had to pitch against the most powerful team in the major leagues, at one of the stadiums most susceptible to home runs.

True to form in the Bronx, the Angels’ homer-prone right-hander Ricky Nolasco surrendered...


Angels release veteran Doug Fister amid emergence of other pitchers

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 18:20:00 PDT

The Angels on Wednesday cut short their experiment to find starting-pitching depth on the midseason free-agent market. They released veteran right-hander Doug Fister from their triple-A affiliate.

After the Angels asked him to remain in the minor leagues to make more starts, Fister requested and...


Angels' Parker Bridwell earns his stripes in 8-3 win over Yankees

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 22:25:00 PDT

At the conclusion of Parker Bridwell’s postgame media session Tuesday night, reporters scattered around Yankee Stadium’s spacious visiting clubhouse, targeting the night’s stars. Unfamiliar with his major league surroundings, Bridwell lingered for several seconds before approaching a reporter.


Angels put Bud Norris on disabled list, recall Mike Morin

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 17:30:00 PDT

The Angels recently welcomed Cam Bedrosian back into their bullpen, and they expect to do the same with Huston Street this week. But their hope of debuting a complete bullpen was nixed when Bud Norris’ inflamed right knee flared up after he pitched Sunday.

Norris was put on the 10-day disabled...


Newcomer Cameron Maybin is turning into a star for the Angels

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 16:55:00 PDT

Fourteen years ago, Cameron Maybin was a hotshot high school sophomore widely projected to become a top Major League Baseball draft pick and, in time, a top center fielder.

USA Today published a feature on Maybin and former USC guard O.J. Mayo as up-and-coming stars.

The first part of that prognostication...


Angels mailbag: Why so many games?

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 12:50:00 PDT

Hello, Angels fans. Your favorite baseball team is off Monday. For a night, their record will rest at 36-37, which translates to an 80-win pace for a full season. If it seems like they have been hovering around .500 all year, it is because they have.

As always, there is a plenty to talk about concerning...


Angels' Cam Bedrosian is happy with the velocity of his fastball

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 19:10:00 PDT

That the velocity of Cam Bedrosian’s fastball was a tick or two off from his usual 95-97 mph in his return from a right groin strain Saturday night was more a reason for encouragement than concern for the Angels reliever.

“Honestly, I’m pretty happy with what I’ve got,” said Bedrosian, whose fastball...


JC Ramirez, Angels get lit up by the Royals 7-3

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 18:50:00 PDT

The early dominance was deceiving and draining. As Angels right-hander JC Ramirez racked up six strikeouts in the first two innings of an eventual 7-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Sunday, the effort required to finish off those hitters on a balmy 84-degree afternoon rose exponentially.



Alex Meyer, bullpen combine for two-hit shutout in Angels' 9-0 win

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 21:50:00 PDT

Sitting on a dugout bench during Friday’s middle innings at Angel Stadium, Alex Meyer engaged Garrett Richards in an extended conversation about pitching. Richards has missed almost all of this season because of a strength-sapping irritated nerve in his biceps, but he has retained his plain perspective...


Angels put right-hander Matt Shoemaker on the disabled list

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 17:55:00 PDT

The strain in the extensor muscles of Matt Shoemaker’s right forearm has abated a bit, but not enough, and the Angels put the right-hander on the 10-day disabled list Saturday. He will miss at least one turn through the club’s starting rotation.

The strain surfaced two starts ago in Houston. It...


MLB | Three up, three down: Rookie Aaron Judge holds court wherever the Yankees play

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 12:20:00 PDT

A look at what’s trending around Major League Baseball:

Three up

Aaron Judge: It’s not unusual for New York Yankees fans to assert themselves in Anaheim; ask anyone who was an Angels fan before 2002. But it is odd to hear Angel Stadium rocking with “M-V-P” chants for anyone other than Mike Trout....


Now in its fourth season, there's no end in sight for the Dodgers' TV blackout

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 10:45:00 PDT

Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to start for the Dodgers on Monday. In theory, the fans that cannot attend the game at Dodger Stadium can gather ‘round their television sets and enjoy another performance by the ace of the team and the face of a generation. Kershaw might well become the franchise’s...


Angels can’t stop Royals from rolling to their sixth straight victory

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 23:35:00 PDT

The victims lingered, together trying to ascertain what went wrong and why. Twenty minutes after the Angels fell 3-1 to Kansas City on Friday, most of their hitters lingered in Angel Stadium’s home clubhouse, revisiting the night’s events until reporters walked inside.

They had succumbed, again,...


Angels' Andrelton Simmons enjoys confidence at the plate

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 21:05:00 PDT

A year ago this week, Andrelton Simmons returned after missing more than a month because of a torn thumb ligament, the same injury to blame for center fielder Mike Trout’s continued absence.

Simmons returned with a batting average in the low-.200s and fragile confidence. Both only worsened in his...


Letters: Jerry West a Clipper? Is it April Fools?

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 15:15:00 PDT

Well, at least Jerry West isn’t a Celtic.

Vaughn Hardenberg



Maybe Jerry West can convince Steve Ballmer to move the Clippers back to San Diego.

I hope Jerry West doesn't play in any golf tournaments now that he is a Clippers employee. He'll never get...


Angels' pitching woes continue in 7-2 loss to Royals

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 22:55:00 PDT

Frustration has a new face for the Angels. It looks like Ricky “Long Ball” Nolasco.

Nolasco is the Angels right-hander who can look near brilliant one moment and in the next like a pitcher who can never surrender a hit that doesn’t leave vapor trails behind it.

Nolasco tried for the ninth time...


Angels sign first-round draft pick Jordon Adell

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 20:15:00 PDT

Three days after selecting high school outfielder Jordon Adell with the 10th pick in the major league draft — and just a day after the three-day draft ended — the Angels signed the 18-year-old.

The deal for the exact $4,376,800 slot was reached Thursday, making Adell the first No.1 draft pick to...


Angels rally to win against Yankees, but there’s a cost

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 01:45:00 PDT

The Angels and New York Yankees played before a lively allotment of fans at Angel Stadium on Wednesday, the sold-out crowd split between the two teams, every play eliciting cheers from one side or the other. In a season most often played before quiet crowds and heaps of empty seats, it stood out.


Angels expect to have contract with first-round draft pick Jo Adell finalized this week

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 21:25:00 PDT

One of Angels left fielder Ben Revere’s high-school teammates, Chad Buchignani, coaches amateur baseball in Kentucky.

More than two years ago, Buchignani informed Revere of a high-achieving local teenager named Jo Adell, who pitched and played the outfield for Ballard High in Prospect, Ky. Revere...


Eric Young Jr. delivers Angels' 3-2 walk-off victory over the Yankees in the 11th inning

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 01:00:00 PDT

Eric Young Jr. spent a significant portion of the last four years trying to get back to the big leagues. Home runs were not on his radar. He hit three, total, between 2013 and 2016.

Somehow, in two weeks as an Angel, since Mike Trout tore his thumb, the 32-year-old journeyman has managed to match...


Angels' Mike Trout hopes to get back on the field before the All-Star game

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 19:20:00 PDT

Angels center fielder Mike Trout said Tuesday he could return from a torn left thumb ligament before the July 11 All-Star game, ahead of the standard timeline for his injury.

“It’d be pretty cool to hopefully be back by then, if everything goes on schedule,” he said. “I obviously don’t determine...


Late rally goes to waste in Angels' 5-3 loss to Yankees

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 23:25:00 PDT

There was a decided lack of buzz around Angel Stadium on Monday, even though the New York Yankees were in town.

The pockets of empty seats spoke to that, and so did the sharply discounted tickets offered online. The Angels said they had sold 36,245 tickets, the fewest for a Yankees game in eight...
