    Mike Trout‘s new six-year, $144.5 million contract extension was officially announced on Saturday afternoon and the star outfielder celebrated by going 2-for-4 with a home run in the Angels’ 6-2 exhibition victory over the Dodgers in Anaheim. Trout, 22, then hit up a steakhouse with friend and teammate Garrett Richards … 12 oz of bone,…

    The Angels signed reliever Joe Smith to a three-year, $15.75 million deal on Saturday, just a day after adding third baseman David Freese and reliever Fernando Salas in a trade for Peter Bourjos and prospect Randal Grichuk. As a result, the Angels have about $8 million left before hitting the $189 million luxury tax threshold,…

    The setup market is all set up: Joe Smith and the Angels have come to terms on a three-year contract, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. Yahoo! Sports’ Tim Brown reports that it’s worth $15.75 million. Obviously, it’s a big price for a pretty anonymous guy, but Smith has a 2.97 ERA since entering the…

    Cleveland Indians v Minnesota Twins

    The Indians won their ninth consecutive game this afternoon against the Twins, moving into the first of two AL Wild Card slots. They have now won 19 of 24 games since September 3, doing anything and everything necessary to secure themselves the opportunity to advance from the Wild Card play-in game. Starter Scott Kazmir was…

The current standings: Rays: 90-70 (two in Toronto) Indians: 90-70 (two in Minnesota) Rangers: 89-71 (two vs. Angels) The Rays, who had won seven straight, were undone by some sloppy defense in…

  8. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 3, 2013, 6:25 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Houston Astros

    Twins 10, Astros 6: Rookie and independent league veteran Chris Colabello homered twice including a grand slam to break a 6-6 tie in the ninth. Entering Sunday he was on an 0 for 23 skid and now here he is having the best day of his life. Probably the best day he’ll ever have at a ballpark.…

  9. Angels sign right-hander Kip Wells to minor league contract

    Apr 13, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Kip Wells

    This isn’t going to turn around the Angels’ slow start, but CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the club has signed right-hander Kip Wells to a minor league contract. Wells, who turns 36 later this month, was signed after having a workout with the Angels yesterday. He owns a 4.71 ERA over 12 major league…

  10. Garrett Richards to replace Jered Weaver in Angels’ rotation

    Apr 9, 2013, 7:02 PM EDT

    Garrett Richards

    If the Angels had felt better about their bullpen, Garrett Richards likely would have opened the season in Triple-A as the team’s sixth starter. Since they didn’t, he was quickly emerging as a major league setup man. However, Jered Weaver‘s left elbow injury has changed all that, and the Angels announced that Richards would move…

    It took a while, but the first ever interleague matchup on Opening Day is in the books. In a four-hour and 45-minute marathon, the Angels topped the Reds 3-1 in 13 innings this evening at Great American Ballpark. While the hyped trio of Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton combined to go 1-for-14 with three…

    Joe Blanton

    The Angels are staying busy Wednesday, picking up Joe Blanton on a two-year, $15 million contract to add to their rotation. The deal includes an option for 2015, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. Blanton went 10-13 with a 4.71 ERA for the Phillies and Dodgers last season, though he did post a fine 166/34…

    Dec 4, 2012, 1:01 AM EDT

    Edwin Jackson

    The Angels are still holding out hope to retain free agent right-hander Zack Greinke, but they are also considering some backup plans in case things don’t work out. With that in mind, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that they are one of many teams in the mix for free agent right-hander Edwin Jackson. Jackson, 29,…

  14. Dan Haren said yesterday was “one of the most anxious days” of his life

    Dan Haren Getty

    If you thought the drama involving Dan Haren yesterday was crazy from an outsider’s perspective, just imagine being the guy in the middle of it all. Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com caught up with Haren late last night after the proposed deal with the Cubs fell through and the Angels bought out his $15.5 million option…

  15. Angels tie record, fan 20 Mariners in 5-4 victory

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:07 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    The Angels tied a major league record Tuesday as five pitchers combined to fan 20 batters in a 5-4 defeat of the Mariners. Zack Greinke struck out 13 and allowed one run in his five innings of work, but with his pitch count up to 110, the Angels decided to pull him early. That didn’t…

  16. For better or worse, Angels get their man

    Jul 27, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke, Sam Holbrook

    Already playing plenty well without him, the Angels will now be called World Series favorites after acquiring Zack Greinke from the Brewers on Friday night. In truth, though, they may not be any better than they were yesterday. In Greinke, the Angels are getting a pitcher with No. 1 starter stuff. He was the AL’s…

    Mets 6, Phillies 5: The R.A. Dickey vs. Cole Hamels matchup didn’t pan out as some expected, but David Wright took care of things, going 3 for 5 with four RBI including the game winner.

  18. Jerome Williams resumes throwing after hospitalization

    Jerome Williams Getty

    Last week Jerome Williams was hospitalized for shortness of breath after passing out in the clubhouse following his start against the Giants, but the Angels right-hander felt good enough to throw a bullpen session over the weekend. Williams is on the disabled list, so he won’t be rushed back, but Mark Saxon of ESPN Los…

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

    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…

    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…

    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. Mike Scioscia prefers a pitcher to a hitter

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Mike Scioscia

    The Angels led the AL in ERA last year, while finishing 10th in runs scored, yet manager Mike Scioscia would prefer a pitcher to a hitter as the team’s big addition this winter. “We need to get stronger pitching,” Scioscia said. “I know you look at Weav and Haren and Santana and it sounds like…
