The Angels have called up 19-year old righty swinging CF Mike Trout. Trout came into this season as the Angels’ #1 prospect according to Baseball America. Trout has played in 75 games in AA-ball for the Angels this year and he is 94 for 290 (.324 avg, .950 OPS) with 69 runs scored, 9 homers, 27 RBIs and 28 stolen bases. He has now played in 250 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 330 for 977 (.338 avg, .925 OPS) with 205 runs scored, 20 homers, 110 RBIs and 97 stolen bases. Trout will replace 24-year old righty swinging Peter Bourjos in CF this weekend due to a hamstring injury. Bourjos has played in 86 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 78 for 287 (.272 avg, .720 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 3 homers, 17 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. It will be interesting to see what the Angels decide to do if Bourjos doesn’t need to go on the D.L. and Trout gets off to a hot start.

The Los Angeles Angels lose Cameron Bedrosian for the year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 18 May 2011 at 3:09 pm

The Angels will be without 19-year old righty starting pitcher Cameron Bedrosian for the 2011 season and likely part of the 2012 season as he had Tommy John Surgery earlier this month. Bedrosian came into this season as the Angels’ #10 prospect according to Baseball America. He did not pitch at all this year. He pitched in 5 games (4 starts) in Rookie ball for the Angels last year and he was 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP. The Angels will be very careful with Bedrosian in his rehab as he projects to be a top of the rotation type of starter down the road.

Kendry Morales needs a second surgery on his ankle, ending his season for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Thursday 12 May 2011 at 7:50 am

27-year old 1B Kendry Morales needs a second surgery on his ankle that was broken during a walkoff celebration last year, which will cost him the rest of this season. He tried to rehab his ankle but he could just not get it right again. This is a shame as he was an emerging force for the Angels. Morales has played in 330 games in his first 5 years with the Angels and he is 323 of 1,136 (.284 avg, .838 OPS) with 155 runs scored, 57 homers, 192 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. The Angels will need Mark Trumbo to keep playing well as he is going to be the full-time 1B the rest of the year if he can handle the job.

The Los Angeles Angles place Francisco Rodriguez on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Thursday 12 May 2011 at 7:43 am

The Angels have placed 28-year old righty reliever Francisco Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list due to a shoulder problem. He has pitched in 10 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 4.61 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. The Angels have called up 26-year old righty reliever Kevin Jepsen to replace Rodriguez in the bullpen. Jepsen made a negative impact in his first game back with the Angels last night as he was the losing pitcher in extra innings against the White Sox when he gave up 2 earned runs in the 10th inning. Jepsen has now pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA and a 2.60 WHIP. If Jepsen doesn’t straighten up soon he’s going to have a short stay with the Angels this time around.

The Los Angeles Angels place Vernon Wells on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Tuesday 10 May 2011 at 7:36 am

The Angels have placed starting LF Vernon Wells on the 15-day disabled list due to a sore right groin. Wells has played in 34 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 25 for 140 (.179 avg, .520 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 4 homers, 13 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Rookie Alexi Amarista played LF last night. He has played in 7 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 2 for 14 (.143 avg, .402 OPS) with 3 RBIs. The Angels might be more likely to start Bobby Abreu in LF, move Mark Trumbo from 1B to DH and use Howie Kendrick at 1B instead of 2B. This would allow the Angels to play Maicer Izturis everyday at 2B with Alberto Callaspo at 3B. Losing Wells will probably hurt the Angels defensively but he was hitting so bad that the offense might actually improve while he’s healing up.

The Los Angeles Angels place Scott Downs on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Saturday 23 April 2011 at 8:25 am

He has given up 1 hit in 1 2/3 scoreless innings for the Angels this year and this will already be his second stint on the D.L. in 2011. The Angels have recalled righty reliever/starter Trevor Bell up from AAA. He got right in on the action last night against the Red Sox as he worked 2 scoreless and hitless innings in which he walked 2 batters and whiffed 1.

The Los Angeles Angels place Erick Aybar on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Sunday 10 April 2011 at 6:29 pm

The Los Angeles Angels have placed 27-year old switch-hitting starting shortstop Erick Aybar on the 15-day D.L. retroactive to April 4th, due to a strained left oblique muscle. Aybar has played in 3 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 5 for 12 (.417 avg, 1.083 OPS) with 2 RBIs and 1 stolen base. The Angels won’t miss Aybar too much as Maicer Izturis is doing a great job of replacing him so far this year.
