Taylor Lindsey is our choice for top Angels prospect at the mid-way point of the 2013 season
By David Saltzer, Scott Stedman and Chuck Richter
With the Angels reaching the midpoint of the season, and most of the Minor Leagues having played their All-Star Game, we at AngelsWin.com are proud to present a midseason report for the Los Angeles Angels Top-50 Prospects. Rather than just presenting an update on each player on our Top-50 Prospects List from before the 2013 season, we tried to give fans a sense of how players are moving on the depth chart within the organization.
In looking at the Angels organization, there’s no denying that it has several weaknesses. Overall, the bulk of the talent is at the lower levels. There’s not much help at Triple-A, and while there is some strong talent at Double-A, it’s at least a year or more away from producing in the Major Leagues.
In terms of pitching, particularly starting pitching and lock-down closers, the organization is lacking. ...

Angels' outfielder Mike Trout, who has not missed a single game this season, is out of the starting lineup today with "a little hamstring issue."
According to OC Register contributor and Angels beat writer Jeff Fletcher, Halos skipper Mike Scioscia said the hamstring tightness is "part of the reason for his off day." The outfielder did make a diving grab...

OFF DAY - NOTEBOOK
ANAHEIM -- July is here and the Angels are in the thick of a pennant race, and that means Angels general manager Bill Stoneman is on the phone.
Trade talks are heating up and will stay hot until the July 31 trading deadline, but that doesn't mean there will be moves made. The Angels could...
After being hit by a fastball on the right arm during yesterday's Angels and Astros game, Peter Bourjos will find himself back on the disabled list after x-rays revealed he has a non-displaced fracture just below his right wrist. He exited the game after running the bases.
The 26-year-old does seem somewhat optimistic even though he's already missed 40 games on the DL...
Overall, it was a good weekend for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim – they swept the Houston Astros and now ride a six-game winning streak as they return home to open a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals beginning on Tuesday night. Their hot play of late has allowed them improve their record to 39-43, the closest to the .500 mark the team has been since May 30th...
When the Los Angeles Angels signed hard-hitting outfielder Josh Hamilton to the roster last off-season the fan base had to be eager to say the least. With two of the leagues best sluggers in the line-up in Hamilton and Albert Pujols, opposing pitchers were going to be shaking in their cleats every time they walked to the mound.
It hasn't quite ended up that way of course....
The July 1st, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Bourjos to the DL with a wrist fracture, Astros manager Bo Porter apologizes for his team's bush league play and much more...
The Story: Peter Bourjos is headed to the DL with a non-displaced wrist fracture.
The Monkey Says: Petey just can't avoid the injury bug and really these last two...
HOUSTON -- Houston Manager Bo Porter called Angels Manager Mike Scioscia on Saturday to apologize for what many players consider a bush-league ploy, one that caused confusion between Angels catcher Hank Conger and first baseman Mark Trumbo on a popup that dropped in front of the Astros dugout Friday night.
With two on, one out and the score tied 1-1 in the sixth inning, Chris Carter...
Joe Blanton pitched seven sharp innings, and Howie Kendrick and Chris Iannetta both homered to give the Los Angeles Angels a 7-2 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday.
Alberto Callaspo and Erick Aybar drove in two runs apiece in a big fourth inning to help Los Angeles to its fifth straight win.
Blanton (2-10) tied season lows with three hits and two runs, pitching six scoreless...
We’ve been waiting for the passion, the fire, the hunger, and mainly the aggressiveness from the Angels all season long. But most importantly, we want wins.
The Angels are just finding a way to win lately: taking advantage of errors, forcing the issue on the bases, and hitting with runners on. When the Angels were swept at home by the hands of the Pittsburgh Pirates, I personally...
I very much enjoy when the Angels win. After a season that has been marked with some truly wretched play, its a nice change to see the Halos play the way they are supposed to. Now I know I have probably written that statement on more than one occasion this season only to see the Angels slide back into a pit of bad baseball, but this time it appears to be different. The team is playing...

GAME 80 - DODGERS AT ANGELS
ANAHEIM – John Lackey followed up Aaron Sele’s gem with one of his own, earning his first major league victory in the Angels’ 5-1 win over the Dodgers before 43,509 at Edison Field.
Unlike Sele, Lackey did not throw a complete game, but he was nearly as effective, giving up...

Well ... here we are. We've reached the halfway point of the 2013 season. And how are we doing?
38 wins and 43 losses. 9.5 games out of first place in the AL West. 7 games back in the Wild Card race. Not exactly the...

It doesn't sound like Albert Pujols wants to discuss his departure from the St. Louis Cardinals as he prepares to face them for the first time.
The three-time NL MVP is posting career lows in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage for the Los Angeles Angels, who have floundered most of the season but enter Tuesday night's opener of a three-game home...
