Los Angeles Angels lefty, C.J. Wilson has reportedly chosen to have arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow.
The procedure will be performed by Dr. Lewis Yocum; a respected orthopaedic surgeon based out of Southern California, to remove bone spurs from Wilson’s throwing elbow, an injury Wilson has been dealing with for what he claims to be “the last couple of months.”
Wilson first told reporters of such news after Monday night’s game against the Seattle Mariners. With the Angels now out of playoff contention and only two regular season games left in 2012, Wilson believes that he will not miss any starts in 2013.
Wilson stating, “It’s one of those things where you push yourself through anything because your job is to go out there and pitch.”
Wilson, who signed a monster five-year contract with the Angels this past offseason, has had a pretty productive year for his fantasy owners, owning a 3.83 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, with 173 strikeouts.
This will be an interesting story to follow all offseason long. However, it appears Wilson will be ready to go by spring training.

San Juan Capistrano, CA – After getting off to a fast start, the Los Angeles Angels All-Star karaoke team failed to capture the Grand Champions Trophy at the 5th annual “Bob’s Pizza and Yogurt All-Star Karaoke Jam.”
The team got off to a strong start, with ace Jared Weaver singing a rendition of Journey’s “Don’t...
News broke last week that Angels pitcher Dan Haren will most likely hit the open market this winter; it’s rumored that the Angels are planning on declining Haren’s option after the season.
Haren will be one of the top pitchers on the open market, behind teammate Zack Greinke. The question is:
What is Haren worth on the open market?
First, let’s look at what Haren has done...
You would think that Angels rookie outfielder Mike Trout for his contributions on the field would be able to get out of some rookie hazing.
However, even Trout couldn't get out of Los Angeles rookie hazing.

Welcome to the second installment of Ninety Feet From Home, where I review each MLB ballpark.
Six categories will be evaluated with a low score of 1 to a high score of 10 based on my experience, relative to overall quality and not any other ballpark. They will then be weighted accordingly to produce a score with respect to 100.
Why the weighting? Because something like food is...

Whether it was rotation issues, hitting woes, or a shaky bullpen, the title, above, effectively summarizes the Angels 2012 season. Here is a sample of what went wrong: 1) An early April slump that saw the Angels go 6-14 in their first 20 games. If they had even played .400 baseball that would be 2 more wins on the season.2) Offensively...
When the Angels traded actual value(!) for the overwhelming bulk of Vernon Wells‘ contract(!), it didn’t look like there were very many ways by which the Angels could come away looking smart. There were more ways by which the Angels could come away feeling content, though, like if Wells performed well enough, even if not well enough to be worth his salary. These days the Angels...
Is the Angels rookie MVP worthy?
It's a wonder I didn't just post a video of myself crying and call it a night.
Mariners 12, Angels 0
Instead of picking apart this evening's "game" like I normally would, I think it's safe to say that the Angels made too many errors, gave up too many runs, and didn't hit the ball enough times. Does that suffice?
Something I will mention...
Mike Trout had four hits and drove in three runs in Los Angeles' 8-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Monday night but it was not enough to keep the Angels in the playoff chase.
The Angels, with a high payroll and high expectations as the season started, were eliminated from the wild-card race after the Oakland Athletics' 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Monday...
In case you haven't heard, the Angels are the most disappointing team in baseball. Nay! The most disappointing team in the world. No! The most disappointing team the history of history across all possible dimensions of existence!!!
Or, just maybe, they are a little less disappointing than that. Maybe.
Call me biased if you want, but I don't buy into this...
Casper Wells tied a career-high with five RBIs including a three-run homer in Seattle's six-run seventh inning, and the Mariners closed out the season with a 12-0 rout of the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday.
Angels' star rookie Mike Trout went 2-for-3 at the plate with a double leading off the sixth and a single in the eighth to finish the season with a .326 average. That...
SEATTLE (AP) -- Kyle Seager became the first Seattle batter to hit 20 home runs in a season since 2009 with a solo shot in the first inning and the Mariners beat Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels 6-1 on Tuesday night.
The penultimate game of the season came a night after the Angels were eliminated from the AL wild card chase. And they played like a team with nothing tangible...
