  1. 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…

  2. Albert Pujols day to day after MRI shows no structural damage in calf or knee

    The Angels were given a bit of a scare last night when Albert Pujols was forced to exit in the fourth inning after tweaking his right calf and knee on the basepaths, but it appears he will not require an extended absence. According to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times, an MRI exam this…

    Nationals' Strasburg pitches in the rain during the second inning of their MLB game against Braves in Washington

    Nationals 4, Braves 1: I have been arguing against a Stephen Strasburg shutdown for a while now, but allow me to say that if those dudes are really gonna do that, I wish they would have done it before last night. Strasburg struck out ten in six innings, allowing a single run and winning his…

  4. Mike Scioscia doesn’t have any sympathy for Vernon Wells

    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,…

  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…

  6. Report: Angels make Peter Bourjos, Kendrys Morales available

    Jul 18, 2012, 6:20 PM EDT

    Peter Bourjos

    According to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com, the Angels are willing to part with Peter Bourjos in order to upgrade their bullpen and could consider dealing Kendrys Morales as well. Bourjos, perhaps baseball’s premier defensive center fielder, has been made expendable in Anaheim by the emergence of Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo. Still, there are a…

  7. Vernon Wells nearing return, but do Angels want him back?

    Jul 17, 2012, 12:51 PM EDT

    Angels batter Vernon Wells hits a two-run home run during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Vernon Wells is close to returning from a torn thumb ligament that has sidelined him since mid-May, but with Mike Trout, Mark Trumbo, and Torii Hunter entrenched as the Angels’ starting outfield and Kendry Morales playing every day at designated hitter … well, do they even want him back? Wells had a miserable 2011 and…

  8. What to watch for in tonight’s All-Star Game

    Jul 10, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Tonight’s 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game will officially open with Detroit’s Justin Verlander throwing to Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez. Still, my favorite part will take place before that. The Midsummer Classic isn’t the must-see event it was before Baseball Tonight, MLB Extra Innings and MLB.tv made seeing the league’s stars in action so much easier.…

  9. Prince Fielder wins his second Home Run Derby crown

    Jul 9, 2012, 11:15 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder Getty

    We made it, you guys. Another Home Run Derby is in the rear view mirror, as Prince Fielder defeated Jose Bautista in the finals tonight to take home this year’s crown. It was Fielder’s second Home Run Derby win, the other coming back in 2009 in St. Louis. Ken Griffey, Jr., who won in 1994, 1998 and…

  10. Mark Trumbo is your Home Run Derby favorite

    Jul 9, 2012, 5:03 PM EDT

    Mark Trumbo

    With Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium serving as the battleground, Monday’s Home Run Derby figured to yield fewer souveniers than usual. Kauffman is one of the game’s tough home run parks. Using Stats Inc. park factors, only Minnesota’s Target Field played tougher on home runs for AL parks  from 2009-11 and that only slightly. It’s played…

  11. Andrew McCutchen gets Home Run Derby call

    Jul 7, 2012, 9:26 PM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen

    Andrew McCutchen is going up against the big boys. The Pirates center fielder, who is listed at 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, was named as Giancarlo Stanton‘s replacement in Monday’s Home Run Derby. McCutchen is tied for sixth in the National League with 16 homers this season, putting him on pace to smash his previous high…

  12. 2012 midseason awards: AL MVP

    Jul 6, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Josh Hamilton was far and away the AL’s best player for two months, but he’s definitely come back to the pack after hitting just .223 with four homers in June. He struck out 35 times last month, nearly matching his total of 39 times from April and May combined. That said, he still leads the…

  13. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    There was no talking Josh Hamilton into taking part in the Home Run Derby, so Robinson Cano went with some pretty good fallbacks Monday: Jose Bautista, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo. Bautista leads the AL with 26 homers at the moment, one more than Hamilton. Cano and Trumbo both have 20 apiece, while Fielder lags…

    Detroit Tigers v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Pirates 5, Phillies 4: All of you who predicted that A.J. Burnett was going to rattle off eight straight wins at some point this year, please cut it out because you’re lying. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go piss off a bunch of Yankees fans by suggesting that Brian Cashman should trade for…

  16. Peter Bourjos is firmly planted on the Angels’ bench

    Jun 11, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Peter Bourjos has started just two of the Angels’ last nine games as the combination of his poor first two months and Mike Trout‘s arrival pushed the Opening Day center fielder to the bench. Bourjos is an amazing defensive center fielder who last season hit well enough to be one of the best all-around outfielders…

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

    Jun 11, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Torii Hunter, Mark Trumbo

    Angels 10, Rockies 8: Mark Trumbo hit two three-run homers to help the Angels complete what was nothing short of an annihilation of the Rockies’ pitching staff. Trumbo is at .326/.380/.632. It would have been optimistic to predict those numbers from Pujols before the season started. Nationals 4, Red Sox 3: Bryce Harper had the…

    Jun 6, 2012, 6:51 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 7, Mets 6: The legend of Bryce Harper grows. A game-winning hit in the 12th inning. What say you, Harper? “I’m happy to get the W, of course. I’m happy to get that walk-off hit, but I don’t like going 2 for 7,” Harper said. “I don’t like striking out twice in one game,…

    San Diego Padres v Chicago Cubs

    Giants 3, Cubs 2: A one run game in which the winning team scored one run when the losing team’s shortstop forgot that there was only one out and didn’t try to complete a would-be double play? Oh, Starlin.  Well, as they say, you can’t assume the double play. You can assume that your start…

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Twins 3, Athletics 2: Holy ninth inning rally, Batman! Josh Willingham hits a two-out, three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth off Brian Fuentes after the Twins were shutout for six innings by Jarrod Parker and two by Jerry Blevins and Grant Balfour. Angels 5, Yankees 1: The Angels win again and are now…

    White Sox 2, Rays 1: Chris Sale: 15Ks and three hits in seven and a third. Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer. Red Sox 7, Tigers 4: Jim Leyland said that we saw what we saw and should write what we saw, so let’s do that: The Red Sox’ second inning rally never should have happened…

  22. Vernon Wells needs thumb surgery, will miss 8-10 weeks

    May 21, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Vernon Wells AP

    The Angels’ outfield logjam is suddenly a lot less complicated. Angels’ television broadcaster Victor Rojas reports that Vernon Wells will have surgery tomorrow to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb. He can resume baseball activities in 8-10 weeks, which means he’ll likely be out until around the start of August. Of…

  23. 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…

  24. Angels and Nationals should consider a smaller trade

    May 11, 2012, 6:41 PM EDT

    Alberto Callaspo

    Many are trying to set the Nationals up with Peter Bourjos after they lost another starting outfielder to injury in Jayson Werth over the weekend. That’d be nice and all, but the artillery is lacking to pull it off. Instead, I’m thinking about a smaller deal here, if the two teams have in fact talked:…

  25. Angels, Nationals reportedly discussing Peter Bourjos trade

    May 11, 2012, 1:29 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    We detailed earlier today that Peter Bourjos seems to have gone missing. Now tonight we find that multiple teams are looking for him. The Los Angeles Angels center fielder hasn’t played much since the Angels called up uber-prospect Mike Trout from the minors, losing ground in a crowded outfield race that also includes Vernon Wells,…
