Angels Insider News

  • The Angels remained consistent in their strategy, drafting both high ceiling starting pitching, as well as many college players. This approach can help them at the major league level sooner than selecting high school players, the way they did under Tony Reagins and Eddie Bane.
  • Tyler Skaggs was scratched from Tuesday's start against the Oakland A's due to a strained hamstring, and will be placed on the 15-day disabled list.
  • Hector Santiago will start tomorrow in place of Skaggs.
  • The Angels have won 4 of 5 after losing 6 of their previous 9. That's how fast things can turn around.
  • In the upcoming offseason, Red Sox starting lefty Jon Lester could be on the Angels' radar.
  • The Angels released former 2010 first round draft pick Chevy Clarke. Clarke, 22, and an outfielder, was drafted out of high school, but hasn't made it past high-A. There, he was hitting .219/.306/.337.
  • In Joel Pineiro's first start at Triple-A Salt Lake, he gave up 6 earned runs in 5 innings.
  • Reliever Kevin Jepsen has another 12 consecutive scoreless inning streak. It is his second such streak of the season. Jepsen was torched in the opening series against the Mariners, but has been lights out ever since. He currently has a 3.54 ERA.
