    Aug 6, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Vernon Wells Reuters

    Vernon Wells hasn’t played much since coming off the disabled list because a) he’s been really bad since the beginning of last season, and b) the Angels have Mike Trout, Mark Trumbo, and Torii Hunter in the outfield. In what limited playing time he has gotten Wells is 0-for-15 with five strikeouts and zero walks,…

    Aug 5, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski

    A.J. Pierzynski didn’t start Sunday, but it didn’t stop him from hitting his 21st homer as the White Sox beat the Angels 4-2. Pinch-hitting for Tyler Flowers, Pierzynski hit a tie-breaking two-run homer off Jason Isringhausen in the bottom of the seventh. It was his fifth straight game with a homer, matching a White Sox…

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

    Aug 3, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    Ryan Dempster

    Rangers 15, Angels 9: Ryan Dempster was shelled in his Rangers debut, but it didn’t matter because C.J. Wilson was shelled too. Josh Hamilton drove in four. You have to wonder if Wednesday night’s game was some kind of turning point in this race. Rockies 8, Cardinals 2: Homers in four straight games for Josh…

  5. Ryan Dempster gets bombed, Rangers win anyway

    Aug 3, 2012, 12:35 AM EDT

    Ryan Dempster

    Making his Rangers debut, Ryan Dempster surrendered eight runs Thursday against the Angels, yet opposing starter C.J. Wilson was just as bad and Texas won a shootout 15-9. Dempster gave up his eight runs in 4 2/3 innings, while Wilson, an ex-Ranger who left for Anaheim in free agency last winter,yielded eight runs in 5…

    Jean Segura, Mike Olt

    Called up from Double-A late last night, Rangers prospect Mike Olt is making his big-league debut tonight starting at first base and batting eighth. Olt was primarily a third baseman in the minors and projects as a good defender there long term, but the Rangers already have one of the league’s best all-around third basemen…

  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.…

    Rangers 11, Angels 10: Holy schnikes! The Angels jumped out to a 6-0 lead and the fans were booing Yu Darvish and the local nine. Then the comeback. Make that the comebacks. Four runs in the fifth and then single runs in the eighth and ninth to force extras. Then, down by three in the…

    Aug 1, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Scott Downs

    Scott Downs entered the All-Star break having allowed one earned run in 30 innings, but he’s coughed up nine runs in five innings since then and now the Angels have placed him on the disabled list with a strained shoulder. According to manager Mike Scioscia “right now it’s a minor issue and we want to…

    Aug 1, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 5, Cubs 0: A rejuvenated A.J. Burnett came into a Wrigley Field with the wind blowing in from center against a Cubs team hours off of a significant selloff and tossed a one-hitter. Oh, and Neil Walker drove in all five Pirates runs. Rays 8, Athletics 0: James Shields pitched a very relieved “oh…

    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.

Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that…

    Kendrys Morales, Albert Pujols

    Angels 15, Rangers 8: Kendrys Morales hit homers from each side of the plate in the sixth inning — one of which was a grand slam — and drove in six runs overall as the Angels make mincemeat out of the Rangers. Roy Oswalt got tattooed. Between that, Cliff Lee trade rumors and Roy Halladay‘s…

    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.

The Angels scored nine runs in the inning. Morales sparked the rally with a two-run homer off starter Roy Oswalt and later added a grand slam off left-hander…

  16. Zack Greinke gets no help in losing Angels debut

    Jul 29, 2012, 7:02 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    Without the injured Mike Trout at the top of the lineup, the Angels got nothing going offensively Sunday  and took a 2-0 loss to the Rays in Zack Greinke‘s debut. Greinke, who was acquired from the Brewers on Friday, was strong in striking out eight over seven innings, but Jeremy Hellickson was better, blanking the…

    Vernon Wells Reuters

    It went largely unnoticed in the excitement of the Zack Greinke deal, but the Angels activated Vernon Wells from the disabled list prior to last night’s game against the Rays. Wells had been out since May 21 after fracturing his right thumb while stealing a base. He went 8-for-26 (.308) with two home runs, a…

  20. 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…

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

    Jul 26, 2012, 6:16 AM EDT

    Francisco Rodriguez

    Phillies 7, Brewers 6: It’s hard to imagine a more demoralizing series than the one the Brewers just experienced. In all three games they fell victim to last inning rallies. This one after their own rally brought them back from a 5-1 deficit, tied with a Ryan Braun homer in the eighth. Then they take…

  23. Luke Hochevar plunks Mike Trout, gets ejected

    Jul 25, 2012, 5:43 PM EDT

    Luke Hochevar, Mike Trout

    After the Angels’ Jered Weaver twice drilled Lorenzo Cain earlier in the game, the Royals apparently opted for a little retaliation Wednesday, with Luke Hochevar plunking Mike Trout on a 3-0 pitch in the bottom of the fourth inning. Hochevar, who had already given up eight runs and was just about done for the day…

    Jul 25, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Ozzie Guillen

    The  Marlins worked seven walks against the Braves’ Tommy Hanson on Wednesday and followed  those up with many of their seven steals, yet they still ended up losing 7-1.
