    Here’s some good news for the surging Angels. According to Bill Plunkett of the Orange-County Register, Jered Weaver will rejoin the Angels’ rotation Thursday for the finale of a critical four-game series against the Athletics. Dan Haren will start the series opener tonight while Jerome Wiliams will make a spot start tomorrow and Ervin Santana…

  2. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  3. Red Sox could seek out big-name targets this winter

    Aug 25, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    The Red Sox have had an average payroll in excess of $170 million the last three years. With Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett departing and David Ortiz, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Cody Ross all set to become free agents, they’re currently looking at something less than half of that for 2013. It figures to give…

  4. Rays finish four-game sweep in Anaheim

    Aug 19, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Matt Moore

    The Rays couldn’t manage so much as a hit or a walk Wednesday in Felix Hernandez‘s perfect game, but look at what they did to the Angels’ starters in four games since: Dan Haren: 3 2/3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER Jered Weaver: 3 IP, 8 H, 9 ER C.J. Wilson: 4 2/3 IP, 6…

  5. Struggling Dan Haren to have next turn skipped

    Aug 17, 2012, 8:02 PM EDT

    Dan Haren

    It’s not hard to see why the Angels aren’t winning. Here’s how their rotation has fared since the All-Star break: Jered Weaver: 5-1, 2.83 ERA Dan Haren: 2-2, 5.04 ERA Ervin Santana: 2-1, 5.06 ERA Zack Greinke: 1-1, 5.54 ERA (since being acquired) C.J. Wilson: 0-4, 5.61 ERA Besides Kevin Jepsen, all of the relievers…

  6. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 17, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Chipper Jones

    Braves 6, Padres 0: Chipper Jones with two mammo yicketties on Chipper Jones bobblehead night. One of his homers was his 2,700th career hit. Say what you want about the guy, but he has always had a flair for the dramatic and has always risen to the occasion. Even kinda lame occasions like bobblehead nights.…

  7. Angels haven’t talked contract extension with Zack Greinke

    Aug 2, 2012, 9:33 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin indicated that Zack Greinke wanted to test the open market as a free agent no matter what, which obviously played a big part in the Brewers trading him. However, now that he’s with the Angels there are already questions about whether Greinke might bypass free agency for a big-money deal.…

  8. Dan Haren likely to miss start with more back problems

    Jul 31, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Back problems have plagued Dan Haren for much of the season. After taking a little break from the Angels’ rotation he turned in consecutive Quality Starts, but now a new back injury is expected to keep him from making his scheduled start tomorrow against the Rangers. Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that…

  9. Angels acquire Zack Greinke from the Brewers

    Jul 27, 2012, 7:42 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v San Francisco Giants

    UPDATE: Morosi confirms that it’s Greinke for Segura, Hellweg and Pena. By the way, Segura, Hellweg and Pena were ranked as Angels’ second, fourth and ninth best prospects by Baseball America coming into the season. 7:38 PM Nothing official yet, but Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register writes that prospect right-handers Ariel Pena and…

    Dark Knight Rises

    Pardon me if I seem discombobulated, but I’m suffering from weekend movie whiplash. On Friday night I saw “The Dark Knight Rises.” Yesterday I saw “Safety Not Guaranteed.” If you can find me two movies out right now that are more dissimilar in terms of tone, themes, budget and every other single other relevant measure,…

  11. The worst of the worst at the All-Star break

    Tim Lincecum

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

  12. Dan Haren goes on disabled list for first time in his career

    Jul 6, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    It took six awful starts for Dan Haren to admit to pitching through a back injury and upon being placed on the disabled list yesterday the Angels right-hander revealed that he’s been dealing with lower back soreness for most of the season. Haren also told Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles that trying to keep…

  13. Dan Haren finally admits to back injury after latest clunker

    Jul 4, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    Dan Haren

    Dan Haren looked like his usual self through the first two months of the season, throwing 72 innings with a 3.52 ERA and 66/14 K/BB ratio. Then the calendar flipped to June and he fell apart, allowing 29 runs in 32 innings–including nine homers–spread over six starts. The latest ugly outing came last night, as…

  14. Tyler Skaggs one of three added to Futures Game rosters

    Jun 29, 2012, 2:07 PM EDT

    Tyler Skaggs

    Two callups and an injury have opened up places in the Futures Game. Now we know who will be stepping in. Fellow Diamondbacks prospect Tyler Skaggs will replace Trevor Bauer as a pitcher on the U.S. team. While now quite as highly regarded as his former teammate at Double-A Mobile, Skaggs does rate as one…

  15. Dan Haren blames shortest start since 2005 on stiff back

    May 10, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Minnesota Twins

    Dan Haren didn’t make it out of the fourth inning Tuesday night against the punchless Twins lineup, coughing up five runs on eight hits in his shortest start since 2005. Afterward he revealed the lower back stiffness that came on during his pregame bullpen session made it tough to finish pitches, which helps explain how…

  16. D’Backs turn to left-hander Patrick Corbin for Monday start

    Apr 28, 2012, 7:48 PM EDT

    corbin ap

    Many assumed that a well-known prospect like Trevor Bauer or Tyler Skaggs would be promoted when the Diamondbacks finally removed soft-tossing righty Josh Collmenter from their starting rotation. Well, Collmenter was pushed to the bullpen on Saturday. But Bauer and Skaggs will stay put. According to CBS Sports’ Danny Knobler, the D’Backs have announced that…

  17. Mike Trout goes 0-for-4 with a strikeout in 2012 debut

    Apr 28, 2012, 6:21 PM EDT

    mike trout getty

    Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper isn’t the only youngster drawing attention this weekend. Mike Trout, who was brought up by the Angels in 2011 but appeared in only 40 games, made his 2012 major league debut in the Angels’ 2-1 win over the Indians on Saturday afternoon in Cleveland. Trout finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout, but…

  18. Dan Haren is going through a “dead arm” phase

    Mar 29, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Dan Haren had a sloppy start against the Reds yesterday, allowing two runs on nine hits in 5.2 innings, and afterward revealed that he’s going through a “dead arm” phase. Haren downplayed the situation by telling Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times that he “should be fine” and “it usually lasts about a week…

  19. Report: The Angels are the frontrunner to sign Roy Oswalt

    Mar 24, 2012, 12:24 PM EDT

    Roy Oswalt Getty

    We’ve seen renewed speculation over the past 24 hours that the Cardinals could make a run at Roy Oswalt now that Chris Carpenter is sidelined indefinitely due to nerve irritation in his shoulder. While that may still happen, it appears that a surprise team has entered the mix. Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network…

  21. Jerome Williams diagnosed with mild left hamstring strain

    Mar 3, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Jerome Williams Getty

    UPDATE: Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports that Williams was diagnosed with a mild strain of his left hamstring. It’s not clear when he’ll resume throwing, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia told Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com earlier today that Williams will still have plenty of time to get ready for the season, as…

  22. Running down the rosters: Los Angeles Angels

    Feb 8, 2012, 6:10 PM EDT

    Baseball player Albert Pujols wears an Angels cap after he is introduced by the Los Angeles Angels during a news conference at Angels Stadium in Anaheim

    Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be projecting 25-man rosters for each of the 30 teams. I’m starting today with the Angels. The winter’s biggest spenders, the Angels are now again poised to threaten a Rangers team that appeared to be in pretty good position to set up its own little mini-dynasty in the…

  23. Report: Diamondbacks to non-tender Joe Saunders, Micah Owings

    Dec 12, 2011, 8:40 PM EDT

    Joe Saunders

    The Diamondbacks couldn’t come to terms with Joe Saunders on either a one- or a two-year deal and have chosen to non-tender the left-hander, according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. Micah Owings, who did a nice job against righties out of the bullpen last season, will also be let go. Saunders went 12-13 with a 3.69…

  24. UPDATE: C.J. Wilson likely to take five-year deal from Angels

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:28 PM EDT

    C.J. Wilson

    10:28 p.m. EST update: Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports says Wilson is expected to accept a five-year deal from the Angels. The Marlins offered six years, but the left-hander has apparently chosen to return to his native southern California instead. 10:05 p.m. EST update: C.J. Wilson has arrived at the winter meetings in Dallas…

  25. Let’s not go overboard for Jonathan Niese now

    Dec 7, 2011, 8:31 PM EDT

    Jon Niese

    According to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman, we have the Blue Jays, Padres, Red Sox, Rockies and Yankees all in on Mets left-hander Jonathan Niese. And it’s easy to see why teams would be interested. Niese is a 25-year-old left-hander making close to the minimum with a decent track record and pretty legitimate stuff. The…
