Tigers notes: Finger contusion sidelines Castellanos

DETROIT -- Good thing Miguel Cabrera got some work in at third base when the Tigers were in Arizona. Third baseman Nick Castellanos was a late lineup scratch with a right index finger contusion, so Cabrera was moved over to third. The Tigers said Castellanos was hit with a grounder during batting practice. Victor Martinez, originally the designated hitter, was moved to first base...

Confident Mike Morin shows his value as Angels reliever

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia was asked a few days ago if rookie reliever Mike Morin gained confidence from a strikeout of Miguel Cabrera.  He shook his head and chuckled a bit.

Once a liability, Angels' bullpen becomes strength

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Their rotation is in a state of uncertainty and their offense is digging itself out of a rut, but as the Angels approach the final two months of the regular season, they know this much: At the end of games, their bullpen will carry them.

Angels' 4-0 win over Tigers may be a glimpse of October

Never have the Angels and Detroit Tigers met in October. If this series is some sort of playoff preview, bring it on.
