    From MLB.com beat reporter Alden Gonzalez comes word that the Angels have avoided salary arbitration with right-hander Jerome Williams by agreeing to a one-year, $2 million contract. Williams earned an $820,000 salary in 2012 as a first-year arbitration-eligible player while posting a 4.58 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 98/35 K/BB ratio across 137 2/3 innings. The 31-year-old…

    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,…

    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…

  4. Mike Scioscia and struggling C.J. Wilson had another closed-door meeting

    Sep 21, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    C.J, Wilson

    C.J. Wilson struggled again Wednesday night, as his former Rangers teammates knocked him out of the game in the third inning, and afterward he had what Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times describes as “a lengthy closed-door meeting” with manager Mike Scioscia. According to DiGiovanna it’s the second such meeting Wilson and Scioscia have…

  5. Jerome Williams gives up five runs, earns save

    Jul 30, 2012, 11:21 PM EDT

    Jerome Williams

    Two extremely unusual events from the same game tonight; the Angels’ Kendrys Morales became just the third player ever to homer from both sides of the plate in the same inning and teammate Jerome Williams became the first pitcher in 26 years to give up five runs and get a save. Since the save became…

  6. Jerome Williams to rejoin Angels rotation Saturday, four weeks after collapsing in clubhouse

    Jerome Williams Getty

    Jerome Williams has been on the disabled list since collapsing in the clubhouse following his June 18 start, but he’ll be activated to pitch Saturday versus the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Helluva welcome back. While rehabbing in the minors Williams got knocked around for six runs in two innings at Triple-A on July 1, but…

  7. 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…

  8. Angels place righty Jerome Williams on disabled list after Monday night’s dugout collapse

    Jun 20, 2012, 9:23 PM EDT

    Angels starter Jerome Williams spent a night in the hospital after collapsing in the Angels’ clubhouse Monday following a rough three-inning outing against the Giants. He was released Tuesday evening and was doing fine on Wednesday, but the Halos have placed him on the 15-day disabled list to be safe. Doctors told Williams that the…

  9. Jerome Williams “feeling better” after being hospitalized

    Jerome Williams Getty

    Hospitalized for shortness of breath after passing out in the clubhouse during Monday night’s game, Jerome Williams posted on Twitter yesterday that he’s “feeling better” and “going to get some rest so I can be back on that mound competing again.” When that might be is unclear, but for now Williams remains on the Angels’…

  10. Jerome Williams hospitalized after passing out in clubhouse

    Jerome Williams Getty

    Jerome Williams struggled Monday night versus the Giants, failing to make it out of the fourth inning  against his former team, and afterward the veteran right-hander had to be hospitalized for shortness of breath. For now the Angels are saying the hospitalization was a precautionary measure, but Williams remained there overnight and is expected to…

  11. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Jun 2, 2012, 8:57 AM EDT

    Mike Trout Getty

    Not sure if you’ve heard about him, but this Mike Trout fellow is pretty dang good. The 20-year-old was in the middle of everything again last night, going 2-for-4 with a triple and three RBI in a 4-2 win over the AL West leading Rangers. Trout got the Angels on the board in the bottom…

  12. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 17, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Colorado Rockies

    Rockies 6, Diamondbacks 1: I took my bike out for a spin for the first time in a while last evening. It was a nice ride on a nice night. At least apart from the crazy, over-the-handlebars wreck I got into at the corner of Alpath and Johnston Road. There were no apparent injuries at…

  13. C.J. Wilson will start back-to-back games for Angels

    May 12, 2012, 1:46 AM EDT

    C.J, Wilson

    Cole Hamels isn’t old school. C.J. Wilson is old school. After throwing 22 pitches before a rain delay halted his start Friday, Wilson will get the ball  again Saturday against his former team, the Rangers. Wilson was charged with four runs in one-third of an inning and the loss after coming out tonight. Just one…

  14. Josh Hamilton third ever with 17 homers in 33 games

    May 12, 2012, 12:55 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers' Josh Hamilton hits a home run against the Los Angeles Angels in Arlington, Texas

    Josh Hamilton stole the show from the Yu Darvish-C.J. Wilson matchup on Friday, hitting two more homers as part of the Rangers’ 10-3 win over the Angels. He now has 17 homers on the season. Thanks in part to a lengthy rain delay in the first, the much anticipated pitching showdown was largely a dud.…

  15. Twins offense finds a new low in Jered Weaver’s no-hitter

    May 3, 2012, 1:07 AM EDT

    The Twins' previous low - Joe Mauer, wax Troy Polamalu

    Jerome Williams hadn’t pitched a complete game since 2003 before shutting out the Twins on Tuesday. That was humiliating. What followed Wednesday was even more distressing. Jered Weaver pitched his first no-hitter as the Angels routed the Twins 9-0. It gave the struggling Halos a three-game sweep at home and dropped the Twins to an…

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

    May 2, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Toronto Blue Jays

    Blue Jays 8, Rangers 7:  We hear a lot about Bryce Harper, but Brett Lawrie is a more fully formed version of “young, confident dude who can be a difference maker.”  Toronto fought back from an early 5-0 deficit, took the lead, then blew the lead before Lawrie hit a leadoff homer that just barely cleared…

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

    Apr 16, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Houston Astros v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 5, Astros 4: Omar Infante and Hanley Ramirez hit home runs, finally putting that crazy home run sculpture into action. Somehow we all survived, though I’m not ruling out the possibility that we all got thrown into an alternate timeline or something and won’t truly realize it until all the crazy occult stuff starts…

  18. 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…

    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…

  21. 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…

  22. Jerome Williams signs one-year, $820,000 deal with Angels

    Dec 12, 2011, 5:10 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Jerome Williams‘ comeback was complete when he returned to the majors and got people to call him the right name, but now he’s getting a big-league contract too. Rather than potentially non-tender Williams the Angels have signed him to a one-year deal worth $820,000 upfront and another $120,000 in possible incentives, avoiding arbitration with the…

  23. What’s next for the Angels?

    Dec 8, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Jerry Dipoto, Arte Moreno

    So, the Halos added a bit to their payroll today, committing $250 million to Albert Pujols and another $77.5 million to C.J. Wilson. Not clear at the moment is whether is they’ll have to make some tough choices to squeeze both in. After acquiring Vernon Wells, the Angels opened last year with a $141 million payroll,…

  24. 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…
