    How is Mark Trumbo‘s transition to third base going after never playing the position before in the majors or minors? It’s off to a rough start, says Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles: He took a ground ball off the nose and had to cut short his workout Friday morning. The ball came off the…

    Mark Trumbo has never played third base in a professional game, majors or minors, so the Angels’ plans to use him at the hot corner this spring and perhaps regularly during the season raised the question of whether they might do the same with Albert Pujols. Pujols, unlike Trumbo, actually has plenty of third base…

    UPDATE: Angels’ general manager Jerry Dipoto told Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com that Abreu hasn’t personally issued an ultimatum to him or manager Mike Scioscia: “I spoke to Bobby a little more than a week ago, I’d say — a week, 10 days ago — and walked through his current situation, and Mike has had very…

    Last week Jayson Stark of ESPN.com reported that the Angels would accept a “middling prospect” in exchange for Bobby Abreu and his $9 million salary, but yesterday general manager Jerry Dipoto downplayed the team’s chances of parting with Abreu. “Bobby is an Angel,” Dipoto told Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times. “Right now, he…

    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…

    Kendrys Morales is still a major question mark nearly two years removed from breaking his lower left leg while jumping onto home plate following a game-winning-home grand slam, but he did get some good news after visiting his doctor in Colorado earlier this week. According to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times, Morales was…

    Jan 6, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    By adding Albert Pujols to a roster already well-stocked with first basemen and corner outfielders the Angels created a logjam that seemingly pointed to a trade. Speculation centered on Mark Trumbo, because he’s 25 years old and the Rookie of the Year runner-up, but yesterday general manager Jerry Dipoto indicated that the Angels aren’t shopping…

    Mark Trumbo‘s season ended a week early because of a stress fracture in his right foot and the Rookie of the Year runner-up’s recovery timetable has been pushed back for the second time.

  10. Angels won’t be willing to move Peter Bourjos

    Peter Bourjos

    The Angels have seven players for the three outfield spots and DH in the wake of the Albert Pujols signing, but they’re not going to consider trading Peter Bourjos, GM Jerry DiPoto said. “Peter Bourjos is a guy we’re going to hold,” Dipoto told FOXSports.com. “He’s one of the better defenders in the league, a 0-to-3 (in years…

  11. Bobby Abreu could be “odd man out” for Angels after Albert Pujols signing

    Dec 9, 2011, 1:01 PM EDT

    Bobby Abreu

    Albert Pujols‘ arrival means the Angels have a logjam of first basemen, corner outfielders, and designated hitters, and while trading Mark Trumbo would bring back the most in return Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times speculates that “the odd man out would probably be Bobby Abreu.” Not only won’t the Angels be able to…

  12. The new Angels lineup

    Vernon Wells, Torii Hunter

    The guess here is that Mike Scioscia is going do a lot of scratching out starting nines on the back of napkins over the next couple of months. Here’s the Angels’ current top 11, along with their 2011 numbers and all the positions they could see action at. Chris Iannetta: .238/.370/.414, 14 HR, 55 RBI,…

    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,…
