Salt Lake Bees - Salt Lake has dropped 7 out of their last 10. However, catcher Hank Conger has really begun to swing the stick well. In his last 10 games, Conger is hitting .350 with a .920 OPS in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. But his defense behind the plate has remained average at best. With Scioscia at the helm, I don't think Hank Conger is in the long-term plans. In the 'pen, Steve Geltz and Jeremy Berg have continued to shine. The 26-year-old submarine pitcher Berg has a 2.89 ERA in his last 10 appearances with just 5 walks. When he is on, he has a slider that dives away from righties and a moving fastball. Steve Geltz has pitched 7 scoreless innings in a row with 4 punch-outs. Geltz features a mid 90s fastball and is working on keeping the ball down in the zone. The veteran Greg Smith will start for the Bees tomorrow.Arkansas Travelers - The Travs' have slowly started to turn it on...

When talking baseball with anyone in the Angels organization, you are likely to hear a common refrain: pitching wins championships. So, it's not surprising that the Angels focus heavily on drafting and developing pitching each and every year. Over the course of a season, the parent club goes through many starters and relievers, so, they are constantly in need of talented...

ANAHEIM, Calif. The baseball clock is ticking slowly toward the trade deadline on July 31, and it's looking more and more like the Angels may have to jump into the market.
It's not their preference, but with their pitching rotation in a state of uncertainty and right-hander Ervin Santana continuing to look horribly inconsistent, do they really have a choice?
They can stand...
Angels right-hander Dan Haren is expected to return from the disabled list Sunday after his latest bullpen sessions went well.
Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said Friday he expects Haren to start Sunday against Texas.
Scioscia also says catcher Chris Iannetta and outfielder Vernon Wells appear ready for rehabilitation assignments in their comebacks from long-term injuries.
If most teams lost their highest-paid player for two months, it might be a debilitating blow -- and his
return would be highly anticipated. That's not quite the situation with Angels outfielder Vernon Wells. Wells has been a major disappointment since being acquired by the Angels before the 2011 season. He was
one of the most unproductive hitters in baseball last season...
Stop it, America. Just stop it.
When the baseball loving free world isn't busy trying to figure out which Hall of famer Trout best compares to, they are busy trying to fabricate a nickname for the phenom.
The Millville Meteor? Maybe if it was 1947.
The Franchise? How very original.
The Natural? Original to the nth degree, but also the nickname of the best player of...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Mark Trumbo and Mike Trout homered, Jered Weaver pitched seven resilient innings to earn his 12th win, and the Los Angeles Angels opened a weekend showdown between the AL West's powers with a 6-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.
Erick Aybar hit a two-run double and Howie Kendrick drove in two early runs for the Angels, who trimmed Texas...
Torii Hunter is in the last year of a five-year $90mm deal he signed and will be a free agent at age 37 after the season. Mike DiGiovanna of the LA Times caught up with Hunter who said he would take a huge pay cut (making $18mm this year) next season to return to the Angels. Hunter went as far to say that money “will not be an issue” in his decision to return to Anaheim. When...
There is no doubt that the Los Angeles Angels have something very special on their team.
Something called a “triple threat.”

Albert Pujols, Mark Trumbo, and Mike Trout.
These three players are playing incredible for the Angels this season, all contributing offensively and defensively, specifically with their power bats.
Lets start off with...

The Angels are out to send a mesaage with this series. Most experts believe that Yankees and Rangers are the two best teams in baseball, with the Angels a distant third. Given that the Halos are throwing Santana and Haren in the next two games, a win tonight was imperitive. When your ace is on the hill in an important game, you need to deliver the message to your opponent that you...
Look, what do you want? The Angels lost. It happens. Turns out that playing good teams on the road isn't very easy to do. Who knew?
Losing stinks and the timing of this little lull for the Halos stinks to. We all want the Angels to be firing on all cylinders as they prepare to host the Texas Rangers, but it just wasn't meant to be.
The funny thing is that the...
I realize right off the bat that saying Peter Bourjos is expendable feels slightly extreme, but it's the truth that we've all come to accept over the past month. The insane production of Trout and Trumbo in addition to the still productive Torii Hunter in right as well as the returning Vernon Wells make it incredibly difficult to envision a scenario in which Peter gets steady...
