4/17/14: The Angels have certainly opened up the wallet the past few years, but they have precious little to show for it so far. One of their key acquisitions in recent years was Josh Hamilton. Hamilton had a disappointing 2013 and is now out for six to eight weeks with a thumb injury. The outfield got thinner a few days ago as the team placed Kole Calhoun on the disabled list when he hurt his ankle. L.A. is still looking up at most of the AL West. The first thing they may need to fix is their home record, where they have only won two games all season.
CJ Wilson was solid for Los Angeles, but unfortunately they could not pull out a victory as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Angels by the score of 6-2. Wilson lasted 6.2 innings, surrendering two earned runs on six hits and a walk. He also added five strikeouts over the course of 103 pitches en route to his ninth loss of the season. Offensively, Albert Pujols blasted his 25th home run of the year in the eight inning off Indians reliever Vinny Pestano, a two- run shot that accounted for all of the Los Angeles runs. Overall on the day, the team managed just nine hits and were a paltry 0-9 with runners in scoring position.
7/28/12 ? The Los Angeles Angels made the biggest splash of the trade deadline this season. They acquired right-hander Zack Greinke from the Milwaukee Brewers for shortstop Jean Segura and two Double-A pitchers. Greinke, a former AL Cy Young Award Winner, is 9-3 this season with a 3.44 ERA this year. The addition strengthens the Angels starting rotation for the playoff push. With Greinke, CJ Wilson, Jered Weaver, and Dan Haren, the Angels now boast one of the top rotations in all of baseball. The Angels sit 4 games back behind the Texas Rangers for the top spot in the AL West.
Bartolo Colon earned his ninth victory of the season on Wednesday as he led his Oakland Athletics to a 10-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. CJ Wilson got the start for Los Angeles and was not his normal self, pitching just five innings and allowing three earned runs on nine hits and five walks. Despite the rough outing, he still has a record above .500 and his season ERA sits at a comfortable 3.34. Mike Trout continued his amazing rookie campaign by adding his 20th home run of the year in the eight off Travis Blackley, while Erick Aybar also went deep for the Angels in the loss.
Despite pitching well, Zack Greinke's debut in a Los Angeles uniform ended without a victory as the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Angels by the score of 2-0 on Sunday. Greinke pitched seven strong innings, allowing two earned runs on seven hits and a walk. He also added eight strikeouts en route to his first loss in an American League uniform since he was traded from the Kansas City Royals a few seasons back. Offensively, the Angels managed just four hits off Jeremy Hellickson and the rest of the Rays pitching staff and were a paltry 0-5 with runners in scoring position.
Jared Weaver pitched well enough to earn his 13th victory of the season and helped propel the Los Angeles Angels to an 11-6 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night. Weaver pitched five innings, allowing two earned runs on three hits and two walks. He also added eight strikeouts to move to an impressive 13-1 on the year thus far. Offensively, Mike Trout, Torii Hunter and Bobby Wilson all went deep, while Kendrys Morales, Alberto Callaspo, Mark Trumbo and Maicer Izturis all also drove in runs as well. Overall, the team hit a strong 6-15 on the day with runners in scoring position.
Dan Haren provided the Los Angeles Angels with exactly what they needed on Sunday as he propelled his team to a 7-4 victory against the Texss Rangers at home. Haren pitched six strong innings, allowing just two earned runs on three hits and three walks. He also added three strikeouts en route to his seventh win of the season thus far. Offensively for Los Angeles, Albert Pujols and Bobby Wilson each went deep in the victory, while Torii Hunter also added a run batted in. The home run was Wilson's first of the season, a seventh inning shot off Rangers starter Matt Harrison.
The Los Angeles Angels continue to roll, winning two out of three games this week against the San Francisco Giants and improving to 38-32. Winners of 7 out of their last 10 games, the Angels remain 5 games behind the Texas Rangers who are on a little hot streak of their own lately. The Angels will begin a weekend series with their crosstown rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers, on Friday night. The Angels will send Dan Haren to the mound against the Dodgers' Chris Capuano for the first game of the series.
After an unusually slow start to the season, the Los Angeles Angels have stormed back and have climbed out of the AL West cellar to find themselves in second place, only 3 games behind the first-place Texas Rangers as we hit the halfway point of June. At 34-30, the revitalized Angels will head into a three-game interleague series against the Arizona Diamondbacks this weekend. Dan Haren will be on the mound to open the series on Friday night against the Diamondbacks' Trevor Cahill as the Angels will look to gain some more ground in the AL West.
Winners of 6 of their last 10 games, the Los Angeles Angels are at .500 with a 29-29 record and have made up a lot of ground in the AL West since the early days of the season when they were in last place and trailed the Texas Rangers by as many as 9 games. Now, the Angels are only 4 games out of the division lead and will begin a three-game interleague series against the Colorado Rockies on Friday night at Coors Field in Denver. C.J. Wilson (6-4) will be on the mound for the Angels as they look to continue their hot play as of late. Mark Trumbo leads the team in all major offensive categories with 12 home runs and 37 RBI to go along with a .337 batting average and a 1.016 OPS.
After spending most of the early part of the season in last place in the AL West, the Los Angeles Angels have moved up to second place in the division and now only trail the first-place Texas Rangers by 5.5 games. At 26-26, the Angels have fought back to .500 thanks to improved play from superstar slugger Albert Pujols and third baseman Mark Trumbo. Despite taking longer than usual to hit his first home run of the season, Pujols now has 8 home runs and 28 RBI and Trumbo leads the team with a .348 batting average. The Angels will open up a series against the Rangers on Friday night and will look to put a dent in that 5.5 game deficit.
5/25/12 The Los Angeles Angels, at 21-25, are in the 4th place in the AL West. Winners of three in a row now, the Angels will finish off their four-game set with the Seattle Mariners this weekend before heading into a decidely tough six-game stretch beginning next week where they will face the New York Yankees and the AL West-leading Texas RangersIn a 3-0 win over the Mariners on Thursday night, starter Dan Haren avoided losing his 5th straight start, which would have been a first for him in his career. On Friday night, Ervin Santana will take the mound for the Angels as they look to extend their winning streak to four games.
5/18/12 The slow start to the 2012 season by star free agent acquisition mirrored a similar slow start for the Angels, but both have begun to pick up their play in recent days. With a 2-game series split against the Chicago White Sox, the Los Angeles Angels head into a weekend interleague series with the San Diego Padres with a 17-22 record, 7 games out of first place in the AL West. The good news for the Angels is that they are no longer in last place, as they have moved past the Seattle Mariners into 3rd place in the division.
5/11/12 With a 14-18 record, the Los Angeles Angels currently sit in last place in the AL West, 7 games behind the division-leading Texas Rangers. The Angels' on-base percentage and runs scored is way down to start the season and they are near the bottom of the league in both categories. Despite great pitching from the likes of Jered Weaver, who has a 1.60 ERA and a no-hitter under his belt already, the Angels are failing to get production from the key hitters in their lineup like Albert Pujols, Vernon Wells and Torii Hunter.
5/3/12 - In front of a crowd of 27,288 at Angel Stadium on Wednesday night, Jered Weaver threw a no-hitter. The 9-0 victory against the Minnesota Twins was the first no-hitter at home since Nolan Ryan threw one back in 1975. Weaver struck out nine and walked one while throwing 121 pitches. The only baserunners for the Twins were Chris Parmelee, who reached first base on a strikeout in the second inning after the ball got away from Angels' catcher Chris Iannetta, and Josh Willingham, who walked in the seventh inning. Weaver ran into a little trouble in the ninth, with a couple of hard hit balls to the deepest parts of the outfield but outfielders Torii Hunter and Vernon Wells were there to track down the balls. Weaver's record improves to 4-0 with a 1.61 ERA. This is the second no-hitter of the year. Chicago White Sox pitcher Phil Humber threw a perfect game earlier this season.
The Los Angeles Angels won their second game in a row against the Minnesota Twins behind a complete game shutout performance from starter Jerome Williams. Williams propelled the team to a 4-0 victory by giving up only three hits and a walk through nine innings of work, including six strikeouts. With the victory, Williams moves to 2-1 on the season. Torii Hunter and Howard Kendrick each added home runs against Twins starter Francisco Liriano in the second inning. The Angels will look to Jered Weaver to close out the sweep of the Twins in Wednesday night's game at Angels Stadium.
The Los Angeles Angels continue to struggle in the month of April, currently sitting at a 5-14 record and a 3-7 record through their last 10 games. The woes begin with slugging first basemen Albert Pujols, whose struggles have been magnified through his first month in the American League as he pushes to hit his first home run of the season. The rest of his numbers are not strong as well; so far, Pujols has hit just .216 and driven in only four runs. For an offense that was projected as one of the best in baseball, the rest of the team has yet to step either - the Angels are currently near the bottom of the league in all major offensive categories.
5/4/12 With the longest home run drought of his major league career still going, Albert Pujols has been unable to help the Los Angeles Angels at the plate early on in this season as they have struggled mightily out of the gate. With a record of 10-16, the Angels are currently in last place in the AL West and 7.5 games behind the division-leading Texas Rangers. The lone bright spot for the Angels so far this season has been Jered Weaver's no-hitter that he threw on May 1st in a 9-0 win over the Minnesota Twins. It was the Angels' second no-hitter in as many seasons.
The Los Angeles Angels continued their suspect start this past weekend in a series against the Baltimore Orioles. While they ended up winning two of three in the set, the team record remained below .500 at 6-10. Newcomer Albert Pujols continues to struggle as he adjusts to the American League, while free- agent pitching addition C.J. Wilson has continued to pitch well in the A.L. West. Kendrys Morales has had a strong April so far after returning from injury, posting a .294 batting average on the young season. Going into a three game series against the strong Tampa Bay Rays, the Angels are currently 6.5 games behind the division-leading Texas Rangers.
After hitting it big in the offseason with the additions of slugging first- basemen Albert Pujols and left-handed-pitcher C.J. Wilson, the Los Angeles Angels have begun the 2011 campaign with a 2-2 record and a game behind the division-leading Texas Rangers in the standings. While Pujols has struggled so far with a .214 batting average, the team is pleased to have added a slugger that paced the St. Louis Cardinals to a World Series with a .299 batting average, 37 home runs and 99 RBI's. The Angels begin the second week of the season with a series against the Twins before heading to Yankee Stadium for New York's home opener.
