    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,…

  3. Howie Kendrick is back on the Angels’ active roster for the first time since early August

    Sep 10, 2013, 7:37 PM EDT

    howie kendrick getty

    Howie Kendrick has not started a game since August 5 due to a left knee strain and that probably will not change until this weekend, but the second baseman was officially activated from the disabled list on Tuesday afternoon and could be available off the Angels’ bench on Tuesday night in Toronto. Kendrick told MLB.com’s…

  4. Angels calling up prospect Grant Green

    Aug 6, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Grant Green went 0-for-15 in his brief call-up with the A’s, who then traded him to the Angels for Alberto Callaspo last week. And now he’s heading back to the majors. Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that the Angels will call up Green for tonight’s game, adding the 24-year-old infielder to the roster for what…

  5. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

  6. Angels expected to keep shortstop Erick Aybar and second baseman Howie Kendrick

    Jul 31, 2013, 2:34 PM EDT

    The Cardinals were said to have interest in executing a trade for Angels shortstop Erick Aybar on Tuesday, but those talks apparently fell apart. Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Angels no longer expect to trade Aybar by today’s 4 p.m. ET non-waiver deadline. Anaheim reportedly asked for one of the Cardinals’…

  7. Blue Jays aim for Angels’ Howie Kendrick

    Jul 31, 2013, 12:36 PM EDT

    Howie Kendrick

    2:32 p.m. EDT update: FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal hears that the Angels are likely to keep Kendrick since they haven’t been offered the kind of starting pitcher they want. /// Residing in last place with a 49-57 record in the AL East, the Blue Jays aren’t looking for any rentals at the trade deadline. However, they…

  8. The Angels are unlikely to trade Erick Aybar

    Jul 31, 2013, 8:55 AM EDT

    erick aybar getty

    There had been talk that the Angels were going to peddle shortstop Erick Aybar for pitching help, but Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that the Angels probably going to keep him. Not that the Angels are done. Gonzalez reports that Howie Kendrick could be dealt. Difficulty: Kendrick can block trades to 12 teams. At the moment…

  9. Evan Longoria, Stephen Strasburg lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 6, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    No matter how bloated the All-Star rosters get, it’s never hard to find imperfections. This year, two of the AL’s top 10 performers to date have been left off for no good reason. For some reason, manager Jim Leyland’s squad took three catchers and four second basemen, but just two from third base, which has…

  10. Pouliot’s midseason award picks: AL MVP

    Jul 3, 2013, 6:26 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    The reigning MVP has some heavy-hitting competition this year. Let’s see if he can hold them off. AL OPS leaders: 1.136 – Miguel Cabrera: .368/.458/.678, 26 HR, 85 RBI, 2 SB in 323 AB 1.126 – Chris Davis: .329/.405/.721, 31 HR, 80 RBI, 0 SB in 301 AB 1.102 – David Ortiz: .320/.406/.607, 16 HR,…

  11. Josh Hamilton is hitting seventh tonight for the Angels

    Jun 19, 2013, 8:15 PM EDT

    josh hamilton getty

    Josh Hamilton struck out twice and grounded into three double plays in the Angels’ 3-2 loss to the Mariners on Tuesday and is now sporting a putrid .213/.269/.388 batting line through 69 games this season. So some changes are being made. Hamilton will bat seventh Wednesday as the Halos take on the M’s for the third…

  12. Angels move Mike Trout back into the leadoff spot, bat Josh Hamilton second

    Jun 8, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    Mike Trout Getty

    The Angels have lost five out of their last six games and currently sit at a disappointing 26-34 on the season, so manager Mike Scioscia has decided to make some sweeping changes to his lineup. According to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times, Trout is back in the leadoff spot today against the Red…

  13. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 24, 2013, 6:23 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 5, Rangers 4: Howie Kendrick with two homers, including the walkoff in the 11th. Kendrick after the game: “It’s a great feeling to know that you can leave the other team on the field” I hope someone brings the Rangers some food overnight. Maybe go back to their hotel, get guys a change of…

  14. Josh Hamilton has miserable return to Texas in Angels’ loss

    Apr 5, 2013, 6:19 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers fans hold signs mocking Los Angeles Angels' Josh Hamilton in Arlington, Texas

    Josh Hamilton had no answer for the boos that rained down in his return to Arlington on Friday; the former AL MVP went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts and a couple of misplays in right field as the Angels lost to the Rangers 3-2. Adrian Beltre hit a game-tying homer for Texas in the seventh, and…

  15. Howie Kendrick is 100 percent following offseason elbow surgery

    Feb 11, 2013, 8:49 PM EDT

    Howie Kendrick Getty

    Angels manager Mike Scioscia passed along an interesting tidbit to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register this afternoon, as it was revealed that second baseman Howie Kendrick required offseason surgery on his elbow. While it would be better news if Kendrick didn’t need the surgery at all, the procedure was considered minor and he’s…

  16. 2012 projections review: second base

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:26 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    This is the third entry in a position-by-position review of my 2012 projections. Along with looking at my top preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each spot, I’m highlighting some other interesting players. Any requests for players not covered can be made in the comments. 1. Robinson Cano – Yankees Projection: .309/.362/.520, 30 HR,…

  17. Now that, my friends, is a save

    Sep 12, 2012, 1:31 AM EDT

    Jerry Blevins

    Oakland’s Jerry Blevins replaced Grant Balfour in a 6-5 game with runners at the corners and no outs against the Angels on Tuesday night. He promptly struck out Kendrys Morales and induced a double-play ball from Howie Kendrick to give the A’s a win. The Angels were attempting to come back from 6-3 down in…

  18. 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…

  19. Brett Lawrie is probably going to get drilled

    Jul 1, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    Brett Lawrie, John Hester

    Howie Kendrick booted a grounder, Brett Lawrie was aggressive and now the Angels are mad. With the bases loaded and none out in the sixth inning today in the game between the Angels and Blue Jays, Jose Bautista hit a grounder to second that looked like a potential double-play ball for Kendrick. Only the ball…

  20. Vernon Wells likely DL bound with thumb injury

    May 21, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Vernon Wells

    As if losing a 13-inning game against the Padres on an error-induced walk-off run scored by a pitcher who pinch-hit wasn’t bad enough, the Angels also lost Vernon Wells and Ryan Langerhans to injuries. Wells injured his thumb stealing second base and Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that he was wearing a cast after the…

  21. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 21, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    If I missed something important in one of these it’s because I was less plugged-in than usual yesterday. My daughter Mookie had her dance recital. Both ballet and jazz, which required me to sit through two (2)  separate shows. I kid you not: four hours of sitting in an auditorium to watch eight minutes of…

  22. Angels announce four-year, $35 million contract extension with Erick Aybar

    Apr 19, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    erick aybar ap

    Today the Angels and Erick Aybar made official what was all but finalized last week, announcing a four-year, $35 million contract extension for the switch-hitting shortstop. Aybar, who’s making $5.075 million this season, gets $1.5 million more than double-play partner Howie Kendrick received in his four-year deal signed in January. Both players would have been…

  23. Erick Aybar wants “at least five years and $50 million” in extension from Angels

    Apr 16, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    erick aybar ap

    General manager Jerry Dipoto has repeatedly indicated that the Angels are close to a long-term contract extension with Erick Aybar, which is something the two sides have been working on since December. What’s not known are the specifics of the deal. Second baseman Howie Kendrick‘s five-year, $33.5 million extension seemed like a reasonable starting point…

  24. Phil Hughes chased early against Angels

    Apr 14, 2012, 2:43 PM EDT

    Phil Hughes Getty

    Hiroki Kuroda was masterful in the Yankees’ home opener yesterday, but Phil Hughes wasn’t anywhere near as efficient this afternoon. Hughes was chased early after the Angels touched him up for six runs on eight hits over just 3 1/3 innings. The big blows came courtesy of a two-run homer by Chris Iannetta in the…

  25. Jeff Gray and the absurdity of pitcher “wins”

    Apr 12, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    charlie-sheen-winning

    Twins reliever Jeff Gray is a 30-year-old journeyman who, as of yesterday afternoon, had one career victory as a big leaguer. Now he has three career victories and how he got there is hilarious. Last night Gray entered the game with two outs in the seventh inning and the Twins down 5-3. He retired Peter…
