MLB Injury News:
The Los Angeles Angels have placed third baseman Alberto
Callaspo on the 15-day disabled list due to right calf tightness, the team has announced.
Callaspo suffered the injury during Thursday night’s contest
against the Oakland Athletics. Initially, the Angels only expected him to miss
a few days before returning, but he’ll instead require at least two weeks on
the shelf. To replace Callaspo on the roster, Los Angeles has called up reliever
Michael Kohn from Triple-A.
Injuries have depleted the left side of the Angels’ infield,
as shortstop Erick Aybar also recently hit the DL due to a bruised left heel.
At this point, LA is using Brendan Harris as their primary shortstop, while
Luis Jimenez will man the hot corner. While there isn’t a definite return
timeframe for Callaspo, the Angels are hoping that he can rejoin the team when
eligible later this month.
Over nine games this season, Callaspo has hit .273/.351/.394
with a double and home run over 38 plate appearances. The 30-year-old owns a
career batting line of .275/.336/.384.

GAME 18 - ANGELS AT A’S
OAKLAND -- The Angels got a solid performance from their starting pitcher, played good defense and had timely hitting. But when their game against the Oakland A's ended, the Angels walked off the field with their heads down.
Greg Myers hit a pinch-hit, three-run homer in the ninth inning off Angels closer Troy Percival to lift the...
MLB News: The Los Angeles Angels placed pitcher Mark Lowe on the disabled list Saturday as he is suffering from a stiff neck. The 29 year old has spent eight seasons in the majors, tallying a 3.43 earned run average in 39.1 innings pitched last season while striking out 28 hitters. He has struggled in 2013, his first year with the Angels, walking 8 in just 6.1 innings pitched, topping...
There was some concern during spring training that defending AL Rookie of the Year Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels was coming in a little out of shape; that his freshman success had possibly made him complacent so he put on some weight.
He has already dispelled any notion that he is complacent by hitting over .300 knocking in 11 and scoring 11. On Saturday he hit his second...
They were supposed to be contenders last season after signing Albert Pujois to a whooping 250 million dollar contract. When that yield the desired result they went out and spent more money this time in the person of Josh Hamilton. The Angels are 4-10 and rumors abound about there being a change at manager. Manager Mike Scioscia, is feeling the pressure and part of it isn’t his...

GAME 17 -ANGELS AT A’S
OAKLAND -- A couple of Angels could not agree on who was at
fault for their 8-7 loss to the Oakland A's Saturday afternoon before 20,253 at
the Oakland Coliseum.
There was first baseman Scott Spiezio, who made a throwing
error in the eighth inning that led to two unearned runs. And...
Mark Trumbo homered leading off the bottom of the 13th inning and Albert Pujols doubled home two runs, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-3 victory over Detroit on Sunday for their second straight series sweep of the Tigers.
Detroit lefty Phil Coke (0-2) intentionally walked Pujols with two outs and the bases empty in the 12th before striking out Josh Hamilton on three pitches...
In a game that looked like it was in the pooper early on the Angels managed to pull a hard, and I mean hard, fought victory. The Angels offense struggled through most of the game, failing to collect crucial hits in 7 of their 8 RISP opportunities. What really gets me excited is how the Angels battled against the such a heralded AL team, a team thought by many to play deep into the...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Mark Trumbo homered leading the bottom of the 13th inning and Albert Pujols doubled home two runs, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-3 victory over Detroit on Sunday for their second straight series sweep of the Tigers.

Last night it was tempting to treat the offensive explosion as a one game anomoly. But after the first inning of today's game, I think it is safe to say the Angel bats are wide awake. Nine runs in an innng doesn't happen very often and it also marked the second day the team has batted around in as many days. Alhough they didn't tear the cover off the ball in the inning...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Peter Bourjos had three hits and three RBIs, Mike Trout and Albert Pujols drove in two runs apiece, and the Los Angeles Angels slowed the worst start in franchise history with an 8-1 victory over Torii Hunter and the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.
Pujols had three hits and Brendan Harris added an early RBI double for the Angels, who had a season-high 16...
After last night’s deflating loss, of a type we’ve seen before this season and would rather not see any more of, the Tigers send out RHP Rick Porcello against Angels RHP Garrett Richards. Porcello missed his last start due to an off-day shuffle type thing; instead, he turned in a perfect two innings in what I think was his first regular-season (at least) bullpen appearance ever...
Hey look, an offense!! It's about freakin' time the Angels hit and scored some runs. Add to that some Harry Houdini like pitching and, Voila!, the Halos get a victory. Now let's not get carried away; one win does not a division title make. However, there were a lot of positive signs to take away from tonight's game. Let the good times roll!!
