TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Kendrys Morales made his first appearance in an Angels' lineup since May 2010 and had two hits in Los Angeles' 7-4 win over the Royals on Thursday. Hitting right-handed, the switch-hitting Morales bounced a seeing-eye single off Royals left-hander Danny Duffy in the second inning. He then ran hard and slid safely into third on Bobby Abreu's double to left. Morales added a sharp single to center field. Angels starter Jered Weaver, the projected opening day starter, was hit hard for the second time in three outings. Weaver allowed nine hits and four runs in 4 23 innings. Duffy, competing for a spot in the Royals' rotation, was also hit hard, giving up six runs and 10 hits in 3 13 innings.

Six Angels that could be traded before Opening Day

But wait!  There is always the possibility...

Larry Bowa Interviews with AngelsWin.com

Interview Conducted by Brian Waller, AngelsWin.com Feature WriterIntensity is something you can’t teach. It’s not a pitch you can practice in the bullpen; it’s not a flaw in your swing you can fix in the batting cages. It’s an intangible that doesn’t show in stat lines on the back of baseball cards.
