      Comments Off on Maybin to DL; Robinson Called Up

As expected Shane Robinson is here. Obviously, he took Cam Maybin's roster spot. I'd expect him to start next 3 games vs LHPs #Angels — Jeff Fletcher (@JeffFletcherOCR) July 19, 2017

The Danny Espinosa Syndrome

      Comments Off on The Danny Espinosa Syndrome

After three-and-a-half months of painfully enduring Danny Espinosa, the Angels finally decided to part ways. Hitting .162 alone, the Southern California native just could not get his swing together and created an even deeper hole than the one that already existed at second base. Acquired in a trade in the offseason from the Washington Nationals, Espinosa was whining about playing… Read more »

Angels Activate Trout; Outright Young

      Comments Off on Angels Activate Trout; Outright Young

A tough decision was looming upon the return of Mike Trout. Do you go with the well-traveled journeyman who showed an early spark, but has since slowed down? Or do you stick with the extra outfielder with a much more consistent track record over the course of their career, and has been swinging a hotter bat lately after a slow… Read more »

Game of Crons Returns… Again

      Comments Off on Game of Crons Returns… Again

Hitting .212/.266/.297 at AAA Salt Lake isn’t going to get many players to the Big Leagues. But C.J. Cron has enough experience in the Majors so far to be given another chance. But how many chances will he be given? With Luis Valbuena struggling to hit his weight, and Albert Pujols having a down year (by his Angels career standards),… Read more »

OF Michael Bourn was released. — Salt Lake Bees (@SaltLakeBees) July 2, 2017 The Angels outfield depth chart has been getting crowded with Eric Young, Jr. finding new life in his role with the club. The presence of Ben Revere doesn’t help either. Then there’s… Read more »

Angels Acquire Nick Franklin

      Comments Off on Angels Acquire Nick Franklin

Super-utility man Nick Franklin, 26, was hitting .195/.268/.317 when he was designated for assignment earlier this week by the Milwaukee Brewers. Not exactly a dazzling star line. The former 2009 first round draft pick by the Seattle Mariners (two picks after Mike Trout) was acquired by the Angels on Thursday from the Brew Crew for a player to be named… Read more »

Eppler’s Domain: Cron, Paredes, Fister

      Comments Off on Eppler’s Domain: Cron, Paredes, Fister

The Angels‘ bullpen is taxed from a lot of work taking two out of three in New York. So the club called up right-handed reliever Eduardo Paredes¬†from AAA Salt Lake. Here’s what we know about this kid, along with other moves. Paredes, 22, is possibly another hidden weapon the Halos have stashed.¬†The Venezuelan-born hurler is their 15th best prospect in… Read more »
