Angels first base prospect C.J. Cron blasted his fourth home run of the season on Saturday for Triple-A Salt Lake.

He is hitting .324/.370/.632 through his first 17 games of the season, and has nine doubles to go with his four home runs. He has five walks and 16 strikeouts, which represent an increase in both rates. The Angels have Albert Pujols at first base and Raul Ibanez at DH, so Cron is going to have to wait until 2015 for a spot in the 1B/DH rotation to open.

J.B. Shuck blasted a leadoff home run off Max Scherzer in Saturday's loss to the Tigers.

As terrific of a start to the game as it was, it would be the only run that they would scratch across against Scherzer. Shuck, hitting out of the leadoff spot in the lineup, finished the day 1-for-4 and is hitting a disappointing .189/.211/.351 in the early going.
Apr 19 - 4:27 PM

Albert Pujols cranked his 498th career home run off Joe Nathan in the ninth inning of Saturday’s loss to the Tigers.

Pujols finished the afternoon 1-for-3 with a walk and a pair of strikeouts. He’s now upped his season slash to a healthy .282/.354/.606 to go along with six long balls and 14 RBI.
Apr 19 - 4:21 PM

C.J. Wilson struggled in a losing effort against the Tigers on Saturday, allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits in his five innings of work.

The veteran southpaw walked three and struck out four on the afternoon. The big blow in the game that proved to be the difference was a two-run homer off the bat of Nick Castellanos in the second inning that got the Tigers on the board. He’ll carry a 4.21 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 28/9 K/BB ratio into Friday’s start against the Yankees in New York.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Saturday that Sean Burnett (elbow) threw an "outstanding" bullpen session the other day.

While it's an encouraging sign, there remains no clear timetable for when the left-hander will be cleared to return to the Angels bullpen. With the trouble that they've had in the late innings, they could use him back as quickly as possible.
Apr 19 - 11:39 AM

David Freese (quadriceps) remains out of the Angels starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's tilt against the Tigers.

Freese sustained the injury during his final at-bat of Wednesday's game, and while he's available to pinch-hit, he doesn't feel well enough to play in the field just yet. Ian Stewart will once again get the call at third base in his absence.
Apr 19 - 10:59 AM

Angels right-handed pitching prospect Cam Bedrosian struck out all three batters he faced in his first appearance for Double-A Arkansas.

Bedrosian has a seemingly impossible 24.3 K/9 for 2014 and could be in Anaheim in the middle of the summer. If you're wont to speculating on future saves, Bedrosian could be an astute move.
Apr 19 - 10:53 AM

David Freese (hamstring) said Friday that he suffered his injury during his final at-bat of Wednesday's game.

While he was available to pinch-hit on Friday, he's still unsure if he'll be able to return to the Angels lineup on Saturday. Ian Stewart had a big night in his place on Friday, and would likely draw the start on Saturday if Freese is unable to go.
Apr 18 - 11:58 PM

Howie Kendrick homered twice and drove home four runs, leading the Angels to an 11-6 win over the Tigers on Friday.

Serving as the team's DH and hitting in the cleanup spot seemed to come naturally to Kendrick. He tagged starter Drew Smyly with an opposite field two-run shot in the third inning, then blasted another off Luke Putkonen the following inning. He finished the night 3-for-5 and is now hitting .261/.320/.391 on the season.
Apr 18 - 11:01 PM

Albert Pujols continued his march toward the 500 home run club, launching his 497th career long ball in Friday's win over the Tigers in Detroit.

He finished the night 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and three RBI. He has looked somewhat like the Pujols of old in April, hitting .279/.347/.574 with five homers and 13 RBI. As long as he can manage to stay healthy, it looks as if he'll be incredibly productive hitting behind Mike Trout in the middle of the Angels lineup.
Apr 18 - 10:57 PM

Jered Weaver turned in his best start of the 2014 season, allowing just one run on three hits over six innings in Friday’s victory over the Tigers.

Weaver walked three and struck out three on the night. Even with his velocity down, he was able to keep Tigers hitters off-balance which led to weak contact throughout the game. He now sports a 4.76 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 20/10 K/BB ratio through 24 2/3 innings on the season. He’ll look to replicate this outing when he does battle against the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday.
Apr 18 - 10:55 PM

David Freese was a late scratch from Friday's lineup due to tightness in his right quad.

Freese dealt with the same injury late in spring training. The good news is that the Angels say it's not serious and he could be available to pinch-hit. Ian Stewart took Freese's spot at third base Friday.
Apr 18 - 5:37 PM

Angels recalled RHP Josh Wall from Triple-A Salt Lake.

He's replacing Jose Alvarez in the bullpen. Wall held a 2.16 ERA with seven strikeouts over 8 1/3 relief frames at Triple-A before the promotion. He'll work in middle relief.
Apr 18 - 3:38 PM

Angels optioned LHP Jose Alvarez to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Alvarez was up for less than a week and was unscored upon in two-thirds of an inning. He's being replaced in the bullpen by Josh Wall.
Apr 18 - 3:36 PM

Angels transferred RHP Ryan Brasier from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move cleared room on the 40-man roster for the addition of Brennan Boesch. Brasier is out indefinitely with a right elbow strain.
