Firstbaseman Kendry Morales has been sent back to AAA. He didn’t get much of a chance to prove himself this season as he only played in 20 games. In those games Morales was 11 for 45 (.244 avg, .759 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 2 homers and 7 RBIs. The Angels have recalled righties Marcus Gwyn and Greg Jones to help out in the bullpen. Gwyn is a 29-year old relief pitcher who has never pitched in the major leagues. Gwyn has pitched in 37 AAA games this season and he is 1-0 with 13 saves, a 2.78 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. In 45.1 innings he has allowed 48 hits, walked 14 batters and whiffed 46. Jones is making a return engagement to the Angels. He pitched 3 innings for them in April and he allowed 5 earned runs. The Angels are hoping that he will be much better this time around. Jones has pitched in 32 games in AAA ball this season and he was 4-1 with 3 saves, a 3.94 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. In 48 innings in the minors he has allowed 55 hits, walked 12 batters and whiffed 36.
