Wade LeBlanc has been confirmed as the Angels' starter for Saturday's game against the Rangers.
That was confirmed after the Halos clinched the American League West championship on Wednesday night. LeBlanc owns a rough 6.88 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 17 innings this season for Anaheim. He's filling in for Matt Shoemaker, who remains sidelined with an oblique strain.
Mark Teixeira (wrist) went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout Wednesday against the Rays.
Teixeira sat out Tuesday with discomfort in his surgically-repaired wrist. He told reporters that he's committed to playing through the pain through the end of the season and will then undergo a full examination to determine what sort of offseason treatment is necessary. The 34-year-old first baseman is batting .217/.320/.400 with 21 homers and 58 RBI in 116 games.
Adeiny Hechavarria (shoulder) went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's win.
Hechavarria missed Tuesday's game with a sore left shoulder. It was never a serious concern. The 25-year-old shortstop is batting .281/.313/.365 this season.
Stephen Vogt (ankle) drew a walk as a pinch-hitter in Wednesday night's loss to the Rangers.
But he then had to be pinch-run for by Billy Burns. Vogt hasn't started a game in two weeks due to a sprained left ankle. He should be getting pretty close.
Seth Smith (hamstring) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.
Smith was held out of the Padres' starting lineup due to a tweaked hamstring. He remains day-to-day.
