Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 14 April 2013 at 6:56 am

The Angels have placed 29-year old switch-hitting SS Erick Aybar on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 10th due to a bruised heel.  Aybar has played in 7 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 9 for 28 (.321 avg, .726 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 0 homers and 1 RBI.  32-year old righty swinging Brendan Harris and 27-year old lefty swinging Andrew Romine will likely share P.T. at SS until Aybar is ready to return to action.  Harris has played in 7 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 3 for 12 (.250 avg, .536 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 0 homers and 1 RBI.  Romine has played in 5 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 0 for 7 (.000 avg, .000 OPS).  The Angels hope that Aybar is able to return to action in a couple of weeks, because they are really going to miss him while he’s out of action.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Tuesday 9 April 2013 at 10:11 pm

The Angels have lost 30-year old righty starting pitcher Jered Weaver for the next 4-6 weeks due to a broken left elbow.  He was injured trying to avoid a line drive the other night.  He has pitched in 2 games (both starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-1 with a 4.91 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  Weaver has now pitched in 209 games (all starts) in his first 8 years with the Angels and he is 102-53 with a 3.25 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP.  24-year old righty Garrett Richards will replace Weaver in the starting rotation.  He has pitched in 4 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 2.08 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 41 games (12 starts) in his first three years with the Angels and he is 4-5 with 1 save, a 4.74 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP.  Richards will be replaced in the bullpen by 30-year old righty Dane De La Rosa, who has been summoned from AAA-ball to replace Weaver on the active roster.  De La Rosa has pitched in 2 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Angels so far this year and he was 0-0 with 1 save, a 0.00 ERA and a 0.00 WHIP.  The Angels are really going to miss Weaver as he has been the anchor of their starting rotation for quite a while now.  The Angels hope that Richards can step up while Weaver is out of action, as he does have a nice upside.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Monday 18 March 2013 at 7:23 am

The Angels will be without 27-year old lefty reliever Brandon Sisk for the 2013 season as he needs Tommy John surgery.  Sisk came to the Angels in the Ervin Santana trade with the Royals over the winter.  Sisk pitched in 50 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Royals last year and he was 3-2 with 8 saves, a 2.54 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 198 games (9 starts) in his first five years in the minors and he is 20-18 with 42 saves, a 2.59 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP.  This is a bad break for Sisk, as he was likely going to get a shot to pitch for the Royals at some point in 2013.

The Los Angeles Angels shut down 1B C.J. Cron for the rest of 2012

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 30 August 2012 at 8:14 am

22-year old righty swinging 1B C.J. Cron has been shut down for the rest of the season as he needs surgery to repair his labrum in his right shoulder. He injured it in high school and played his first two years as a pro with a bum shoulder. That makes the numbers he put up all the more impressive. Cron played in 129 games in A-ball this year for the Angels and he was 154 of 525 (.293 avg, .843 OPS) with 73 runs scored, 27 homers, 123 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Cron has now played in 163 games in his first two years in the minors and he is 198 of 668 (.296 avg, .877 OPS) with 103 runs scored, 40 homers, 164 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. Cron came into this season as the Angels’ #5 prospect according to Baseball America. Imagine what he’s going to do next year when he’s finally healthy.

The Angels will miss Bourjos’ defense and speed while he’s on the shelf. His injury will clear more P.T. for Vernon Wells.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Wednesday 1 August 2012 at 8:28 am

The Los Angeles Angels have placed 36-year old lefty reliever Scott Downs on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 28th due to a strained left shoulder. Downs has pitched in 38 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 1-1 with 9 saves, a 2.57 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. He will be replaced on the active roster and in the bullpen by 37-year old Hisanori Takahashi, who has been recalled from AAA. He pitched in 33 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the Angels and he was 0-2 with a 4.37 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. The Angels hope that Downs only has to miss a couple of weeks, as he has pitched well so far this year.
