MLB Injury News:
The Los Angeles Angels entered the first-half break as one
of the most-injured teams in the majors. They are hoping to lose that ominous
title over the second half of the season. While pitchers Sean Burnett and Jason
Vargas are progressing through their rehab programs, center fielder Peter
Bourjos’ broken right wrist still hasn’t healed completely, according to Mike
DiGiovanna of The Los Angeles Times.
#Angels LHPs Jason Vargas, Sean Burnett, both long-tossing to 140 feet, should throw off mound within week to 10 days.

X-rays on #Angels CF Peter Bourjos show broken bone in right wrist hasn't healed completely. Has thrown but no swinging. More X-rays Fri.

Burnett and Vargas are both long-tossing from 140 feet,
which is an early step in their recovery from injury. DiGiovanna notes that
each pitcher is expected to resume throwing from a mound in the next 10 days.
Burnett has been limited to 13 appearances this season due to elbow issues. While he’s maintained a miniscule ERA of 0.93 over 9 2/3
innings for the Angels this year, something hasn’t been quite right with his
arm, resulting in Los Angeles shutting him down for extended stretches.
Vargas was placed on the 15-day disabled list last month after a blood clot was found in his left armpit area. There was concern that a
resulting procedure could sideline Vargas for an extended stretch, but he’s on
track to rejoin the Angels this season. Prior to the injury, the 30-year-old
had been impressive in his first season with LA, posting an ERA and WHIP of
3.65 and 1.358 over 14 starts.
Bourjos is in the midst of a career-year for the Angels, but
he’s been unable to remain healthy and on the field. The center fielder has
been limited to 40 games this year, as he’s dealt with a pair of injuries. When
he’s been healthy enough to suit up for the Angels, he’s hit an impressive
.333/.392/.457 with three doubles, three triples and three home runs.

X-rays taken earlier this week showed that the broken bone just below Peter Bourjos' right wrist hasnt fully healed, a minor setback that will delay the return of the Angels center fielder by another week or two.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Like most other all-stars and baseball fans alike, Angels outfielder Mike Trout's fondest memory of this year's Major League All-Star Game was Yankees closer Mariano Rivera pitching the eighth inning for the American League.
But the star outfielder also had some time to help out one of his Angels teammates.
Trout was given a pink glove by reliever Jerome...

If the Angels are going to make a run in the second half, their stars need to lead the way.
And on Friday night, in a 4-1 victory over the American League West-leading Athletics at Angel Stadium, Jered Weaver, Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton did exactly that.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Josh Hamilton is a five-time all-star and has a career .980 fielding percentage. However his play in right field this season, at times, has been shaky.

Hamiltons eight errors this...
There's an old saying, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. For the Angels, any hope of contention for the AL West title or a wild card begins with nights like tongiht. The A's are one of the best teams in baseball (I know I threw up a little just typing that phrase) and the schedule gods have given the Angels a shot by orchestrating several series between...
Keith Allison During the All Star break, most owners out there tend to follow the same routine. Get up and look at your roster, realize that you don't need to make any changes for the day, and then sit and stare at your roster wondering what might have been...and wondering what is yet to come. I'm going to tell you what to expect from some big name players for the second...
The Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels matched up on Saturday night for the middle game of this three-game set, with the Angels riding a masterful outing from C.J. Wilson en route to a 2-0 win.

Though the Los Angeles Angels have the high-priced, marquee talent, the low-budget Oakland Athletics are the team to catch in the AL West.
