Angels' place pitcher Dane De La Rosa on disabled list

Despite being second in the Major Leagues in runs scored, the Los Angeles Angels are out of the gate a game under .500 at 7-8. Much of the blame has to go a pitching staff that is 21st in the league in ERA. Injuries to Sean Burnett and Dane De La Rosa haven't helped the cause. Now, two days after being optioned to Triple-A, De La Rosa has been placed on the 15-day disabled...

Mike Trout is promoting Marlon Wayans movies, for some reason

When it comes to baseball, Mike Trout is great at just about everything. Sure, you can quibble about his arm strength, but that’s about it. Off the field, however, Trout has a lot of work to do. By all accounts he is a genial, upstanding fellow, but it turns out that he isn’t exactly a cinephile. Go see my boy @marlonwayans hilarious movie #ahauntedhouse2 in theaters TONIGHT...

Jered Weaver isn’t fooling anyone ☆

Jered Weaver has been decidedly un-Jered Weaver-like this season. The supposed ace of the Angels’ staff is currently bringing up the rear for the rotation right now. While some have been predicting doom for Weaver for a few years now, this rough start has been even worse than anyone could imagine. So what gives? While there has been much hand-wringing over Jered’s declining velocity...

Boxscore Breakdown Game #15: Disaster Averted – Angels 5, Athletics 4

Another sweep at home at the hands of an AL West foe seemed like a looming disaster for the Angels, but they managed to battle back and salvage some pride and keep their record in the realm of respectability. Now if they could just find a way to do that without going to extra innings, that would be great. This last week has led to me racking up a pretty big sleep deficit. Run Expectancy...

Albert Pujols Approaches 500 HRs… And Nobody Cares

Sometimes you read a piece and it says everything you feel. Bob Nightengale does just that with an article from the USA Today on Albert Pujols and his pending milestone 500th homerun. The reason the Angels were able to justify (at least to themselves) that Albert was worth the 240 million dollar contract they offered was that they were going to get one of the all-time greats, yes...

Angels Beat A's In Extras On Chris Iannetta Walkoff Homerun

Tyler Skaggs had one tough inning, a four-run fourth, which looked to doom the Angels to a sweep at home, by division rivals Oakland on Wednesday night, but if you've been watching this latest home-stand, you'll know that it's their new "thing" to tie games up in late innings, and send them to extras. Tonight was, in fact, the fourth extra inning game on this...

Chris Iannetta's walk-off HR lifts Angels past A's in 12

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Chris Iannetta is no stranger to the moment but even he was a bit surprised by his results Wednesday night. The ball doesn't carry particularly well at Angel Stadium at night, but Iannetta got just enough of a Drew Pomeranz pitch to lift the Angels to a 5-4 win over Oakland in 12 innings. Even in the dugout, there were some reservations when Angels players...

Angels reliever Joe Smith takes injury of Kole Calhoun tough

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- At this point, you could take your pick. Which member of the Angels bullpen would be the next to relinquish a lead? You could go down the list. By the numbers, it certainly was not to be Joe Smith. In an ineffective bullpen, he was an effective one. In six appearances, he allowed just three hits, eight strikeouts, no walks, and a 0.00 ERA. Yet, on Tuesday night...

Kole Calhoun To Miss Four To Six Weeks

Kole Calhoun will join fellow Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton on a lengthy DL stint, reports Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register (via Twitter). An ugly-looking ankle turn last night resulted in a bad ligament sprain that will put Calhoun on the shelf for four to six weeks, according to manager Mike Scioscia.

Going to sleep on Mike Trout was a bad idea

I had the Angels game somewhat queued up last night when I passed out on the couch with my bulldog – Garrett Richards was doing everything he could to hand the game back to the A’s despite those darling Angels doing everything they could do to get him the win in the face of his own futility. And I fell asleep on Michael Nelson Trout. And wouldn’t you know it that he did something...

With Kole Calhoun out, it is time to #FreeMattLong ☆

This spring, I accidentally started (or at least propelled) the #FreeMattLong movement on Twitter. It started off as a lark, but was somewhat legitimized as Long performed well all spring, even as he started facing stiffer competition. The premise was simply that Long was one of the under-the-radar prospects who did a lot of things pretty decently, but didn’t do any one thing well...

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Mike Trout tried his best to be the hero Tuesday night. The Angels star hit a two-run homer to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth to force extra innings.
