Mike DiGiovanna, Los Angeles Angels beat writer for Los Angeles Times, tweeted this afternoon that the Angels are looking for a left-handed relief pitcher and Jose Mijares of the Kansas City Royals is on their radar. #Angels would like to add LH reliever. Among those they've expressed interest in are #Royals' Jose Mijares and #Cardinals' Marc Rzepczynski. Royals fans learned last night that the Royals have officially made Mijares available on the trade block.

Royals Home Runs Through 95 Games: Butler back on 30+ HR pace

It has been quite a while (36 games) since we last checked in on the home run paces of the members of the Kansas City Royals offense. The offensive power has been interesting and the paces have jumped back up a bit, but the question Royals fans always find themselves asking - Will Steve Balboni's team home run record of 36 (1985) ever be broken? While no member of the Royals...

Ron Washington: Comparing Mike Trout to Willie Mays has to stop

Angels rookie outfielder Mike Trout is an insanely good athlete. After spending much of the first month of the season in the minors, Trout has wasted no time figuring out how to wear out Major League pitching and make an impact on the game. In 74 games, Trout is leading the American League with a .357 average, 31 stolen bases, 70 runs scored and an on-base percentage of .412. He...

Guthrie impresses Yost in debut

Right-hander Jeremy Guthrie made his Royals debut Sunday. It was not great, but it was better than what left-hander Jonathan Sanchez had given the Royals. The Royals acquired Guthrie on Friday in a trade for Sanchez with the Rockies. Working on three days' rest, Guthrie allowed five runs on four hits, including a Ryan Doumit home run, and three walks in five innings. He...

A Fan went on the field for an autograph during the Angels-Rangers game

During Sunday night's game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Texas Rangers in Angel Stadium a fan came onto the field in the top of the eight inning to have a chat with Angels Left Fielder Mike Trout, reports Mike DiGiovanna of the LA Times.   According to DiGiovanna the fan asked for an autograph. “He said it was his 18th  birthday and asked me for an autograph,...

Jean Segura Gets ‘The Call’ from Angels

Los Angeles caught lightning in a bottle with the addition of rookie Mike Trout earlier this season. Now the team will look to do the same with the addition of Jean Segura. Back in November, I ranked the rookie as the club’s fourth-best prospect entering the this season. The middle infield prospect was promoted to the majors for the first time in his pro career after starting shortstop...

Santana skips turn in search for answers

ANAHEIM, Calif. In the ever-changing state of the Angels pitching rotation, the only sure thing is Jered Weaver. Everything else is in flux. This was never more clear than Wednesday morning when manager Mike Scioscia announced that troubled right-hander Ervin Santana will not pitch Friday as expected and that it's possible Jerome Williams could start next week against the...

One Final Rewind for Jason Kendall

[Image by Justin Bopp] After one of the lamest comeback attempts in recent memory (Manny Ramirez probably takes that trophy home), Jason Kendall has retired. While Kendall’s last few seasons were pretty miserable performances (although that did not stop the Royals and Brewers from marching him out there as much as they possibly could — indeed, Kendall insisted on it), he was...

The Great Giveaway: Royals Past Attempts to Trade for Pitching Net Nada

Jonathan Sanchez recently gave up five runs before he could record an out. I didn’t think anyone could pitch that poorly. But the next night, Ryan Verdugo did Sanchez one better (or worse) by surrendering six runs in just 1 2/3 innings. The most horrifying fact of all is that both pitchers were acquired by trading Melky Cabrera to the Giants. That fact doesn’t need to be belabored...

Royals-Angels Preview

(AP) -- A matchup with the slumping Kansas City Royals might give C.J. Wilson just what he needs to get back on track following his worst outing of the season. The Los Angeles Angels left-hander will try to do just that while helping his team continue its recent success at home Monday night. Wilson (9-6, 2.82 ERA) had a 1.74 ERA over his 10 starts before Wednesday's 7-2 loss...

Pujols out after being hit by pitch

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Los Angeles slugger Albert Pujols was not in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Kansas City Royals, after getting hit on the right elbow by a pitch he swung at the previous night. It was only the second time this season that the three-time NL MVP didn't start, either at first base or as the designated hitter. ...

Angels 11, Royals 6

Jered Weaver won his seventh straight start to tie a career-best, Mike Trout and Torii Hunter homered, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Kansas City Royals 11-6 victory Wednesday. The Angels won the rubber game of the three-game series without slugger Albert Pujols, who missed his second game of the season because of a bruised right elbow. Weaver (13-1) threw 101 pitches over...

Late pinch hit downs Royals

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Pinch-hitter Kendrys Morales delivered a rare three-run single in the eighth inning to help the Los Angeles Angels beat the Kansas City Royals 6-3 on Monday night. Alberto Callaspo, who spent two-plus seasons with the Royals, started the tiebreaking rally with a two-out single against reliever Greg Holland (4-3). Maicer Izturis bounced a double over the head...

Delightful Rogue - Bo Belinsky

By Rob Goldman - AngelsWin.com Historical Writer Angel publicist Irv Kaze knew it was Bo the moment he laid eyes on him—the swagger, the shades, and that slicked backed hair. Bo was easy to spot in a crowd, even at Los Angeles International Airport. It was Belinsky. Had to be. His reputation preceded him. For an entire month, the rookie pitcher had driven management crazy...
