Angels do not get the clutch hits but still pick up a 3-2 victory over the Rays

Mon, 22 May 2017 19:55:00 PDT

The Angels and Tampa Bay Rays each entered Monday’s series opener with 23 wins and 23 losses. They are .500 ballclubs, flawed but capable.

Predictably, their first of four games swung on the tiniest of margins: a wild pitch. The Angels were the beneficiaries of the decisive mistake in a 3-2 victory...


Angels send C.J. Cron to triple-A Salt Lake

Mon, 22 May 2017 18:10:00 PDT

On Sunday, the struggling C.J. Cron hit his first home run of 2017, a grand slam. On Monday, he was demoted to triple-A Salt Lake.

Cron, 27, hit only .232 with a .586 on-base-plus-slugging percentage in 24 games. His playing was interrupted by a bruised foot and then a bruised hand. Since activated...

Mike Trout, C.J. Cron help Angels slug their way to a 12-5 victory over the Mets

Sun, 21 May 2017 15:35:00 PDT

As Mike Trout dipped his right foot across home plate in the second inning of the Angels’ 12-5 win over the New York Mets on Sunday, Mets manager Terry Collins rubbed his hand over his mouth, shuffled his feet and hunched over a railing in the dugout.

Whatever levers Collins pulled made no difference...


Angels relievers Cam Bedrosian and Huston Street continue on the road to recovery

Sun, 21 May 2017 14:45:00 PDT

The Angels might get their closer competition, after all.

As right-hander Huston Street approaches a rehabilitation assignment, the Angels announced on Sunday that right-hander Cam Bedrosian would begin throwing off the mound for the first time since a right groin strain landed him on the disabled...


Angels' ninth-inning rally falls short, as did their defense, in 7-5 loss to the Mets

Sat, 20 May 2017 21:15:00 PDT

A man resigned to his fate, Mets catcher Rene Rivera skittered to a stop at the cutout just past third base and stood up tall, knees locked.

Luis Valbuena started the rundown half-heartedly by jogging toward Rivera. After a few strides, he shoveled the baseball to teammate Jefry Marte. Too early....


Angels look to add Doug Fister to their rotation

Sat, 20 May 2017 21:10:00 PDT

How quickly newly acquired right-hander Doug Fister can join the Angels’ rotation “is going to be contingent on how his stuff plays out,” manager Mike Scioscia said on Saturday.

In other words: How quickly can Fister extend himself to about 90 to 100 pitches? And how good will he look once he does?

A look at what’s trending in Major League Baseball this week:


Sports Illustrated: It was three years ago, with the Houston Astros coming off three consecutive 100-loss seasons, that SI proclaimed them — on its cover — as “Your 2017 World Series Champs.” Hey, look now: the Astros have the...


Angels fall to slumping Mets 3-0, ending a four-game winning streak

Fri, 19 May 2017 21:05:00 PDT

Running toward center field, neck craned upward, Mets shortstop Jose Reyes saw the baseball spinning behind him, and he threw both arms up at it until it looked as if he was making a shrug.

The gesture fit the Angels’ effort in a 3-0 loss to the Mets on Friday evening as well as the batted ball...


Mike Trout enjoys some hometown coverage ahead of series with Mets

Fri, 19 May 2017 20:15:00 PDT

C.J. Cron was perusing the local newspapers in the visitor’s clubhouse Friday when Mike Trout plopped down beside him to join a game of cards.

“Hey look who it is!” Cron said, holding up a copy of the New York Daily News and looking at Trout.

Here, in the flesh, was Trout. And here, gracing the...


Angels sign free-agent pitcher Doug Fister

Thu, 18 May 2017 17:10:00 PDT

The Angels agreed to terms on a major league contract with veteran right-hander Doug Fister on Thursday, according to a source who requested anonymity because the deal has not yet been certified with a physical examination.

Fister, 33, went unsigned over the offseason. He struggled to a 4.64 earned-run...


Mike Trout hits 13th home run, leading Angels to fourth win in a row

Thu, 18 May 2017 00:15:00 PDT

Some years, it has taken him until the summer. The earliest he had ever done it was June 1.

It’s an arbitrary number, no doubt, but on a brisk spring night Wednesday at Angel Stadium, Mike Trout clobbered his 13th home run of 2017 in the Angels’ 12-8 slugfest win over the docile Chicago White Sox.


Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs has been cleared to run

Wed, 17 May 2017 20:35:00 PDT

Not three weeks removed from an oblique strain that was expected to sideline him between 10 and 12 weeks, Angels left-hander Tyler Skaggs has been cleared to run.

He ran Wednesday, is hopeful to resume throwing within a few days, and believes he can complete his return to a major league mound in...


Albert Pujols saves the day for Angels with walk-off single in extras

Wed, 17 May 2017 00:35:00 PDT

For the first six weeks of 2017, the Angels pieced together an effective bullpen from the unlikeliest of sources. With their established relievers injured, they turned a lifelong starter into their closer, watched a waiver-wire veteran literally strike everyone out for a while, and plucked a diminished...


Angels go with Cameron Maybin in leadoff spot against White Sox

Tue, 16 May 2017 20:30:00 PDT

Stage 2 of the Angels’ operation to replace Yunel Escobar atop their lineup commenced Tuesday night, when left fielder Cameron Maybin debuted as their leadoff hitter against a left-hander and right fielder Kole Calhoun batted fifth.

“We want to certainly give it a look,” manager Mike Scioscia said....


Mike Trout homers for fourth straight game to lead Angels to 5-3 win

Mon, 15 May 2017 23:20:00 PDT

When he missed five consecutive games for the first time in his life, the best ballplayer on Earth required some time to find his swing again: eight at-bats. Then Mike Trout re-emerged, as good as ever, if not better.

After returning from a nagging hamstring strain Thursday, he homered Friday,...


It's hard to believe, but Mike Trout is still getting better

Mon, 15 May 2017 21:35:00 PDT

Are you superstitious?

Mike Trout glanced up.

“Yeah,” he said.

He smiled.

“What’s the question about?” Trout said. “Hitting?”

Trout homered in each of the last three games leading into the Angels’ series opener Monday night against the Chicago White Sox. So, yeah, hitting.

“Yeah, no,” he said.


Angels aren't ruling out a return this season by left-hander Andrew Heaney

Mon, 15 May 2017 20:15:00 PDT

At the start of spring training, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said the information available to him indicated there was “nothing” that would make left-hander Andrew Heaney available to pitch in 2017, one year after elbow ligament replacement surgery.

“I just don’t see it happening this year,” Scioscia...


Angels mailbag: Mike Trout's great, but what about the rest?

Mon, 15 May 2017 12:50:00 PDT

Hello, Angels fans. Your favorite baseball team is 19-21, which translates to a 77-win pace for a full season. Last week was neither good nor bad. It just was. Here are some questions and answers about the Angels.

Mike Trout homers again and Alex Meyer delivers a gem in Angels' 4-1 win over Tigers

Sun, 14 May 2017 18:50:00 PDT

Alex Meyer is 6 feet 9 and possesses the ability to throw 99-mph fastballs. But the 27-year-old Angels right-hander does not have a consistent belief that he belongs in the big leagues.

“Two starts ago, I was feeling sorry for myself,” he said. “I was wondering, ‘Am I a starter? You can’t even...


Yunel Escobar goes on DL, and that appears to change Angels' plans for Jefry Marte

Sun, 14 May 2017 16:50:00 PDT

When the Angels agreed to sign Luis Valbuena to a two-year contract in January, they accordingly decided to keep only one of their two young infielders with power-hitting potential: C.J. Cron and Jefry Marte.

Injuries delayed that decision 39 games and will delay it even longer. For a moment Sunday,...


Tigers steal game from Angels 4-3 in the ninth

Sat, 13 May 2017 22:30:00 PDT

The Angels veered toward another close loss on Saturday night until Mike Trout graced his teammates with an extension. He did not make an out all night, but they soon went right back off track.

Down one run to Detroit in the seventh inning at Angel Stadium, Trout tied the score with one ferocious...


Angels' Garrett Richards hoping for a return in August

Sat, 13 May 2017 20:05:00 PDT

While the Angels roam around .500, their best pitcher waits, sentenced to inaction by a rare condition within his prized right arm to which there is no known cure besides time.

The cutaneous nerve in Garrett Richards’ biceps remains irritated, preventing him from firing off his 97-mph fastballs....


Derek Jeter was never an MVP like Mike Trout, but he won playoff games and titles at a young age

Sat, 13 May 2017 15:15:00 PDT

If Mike Trout did not have to work Sunday, he would be at Yankee Stadium.

“One hundred percent,” Trout said.

Trout grew up with a poster of Derek Jeter on his bedroom wall. On Sunday, the New York Yankees will retire Jeter’s number and immortalize him with a plaque in Monument Park.

Jeter is 42....


MLB | Three up, three down: Greinke is picking up steam, while K-Rod is losing it
