Angels third base prospect Kaleb Cowart went 3-for-4 with a triple for Double-A Arkansas on Monday, raising his season line to .229/.301/.329.

After a breakout in 2012, Cowart has struggled to get his OPS above 650 while in his second season in Double-A. Cowart has more stolen bases and increased his walk rate, but he still isn't hitting for a good average or power, and the likelihood that he will reach the major leagues is decreasing.

C.J. Wilson (ankle) allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings Monday in a minor league rehab start with Double-A Arkansas.

Wilson threw 81 pitches and gave up four hits and two walks while striking out seven batters. The southpaw has been sidelined all month with a right ankle sprain, but he should be cleared to rejoin the Angels' rotation this weekend.

David Freese hit a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning to lead the Angels to a 2-1 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Freese connected on a Joba Chamberlain pitch for his sixth home run of the year. It was his only hit in three at-bats on the day. The third baseman has improved his numbers with a strong July but is batting just .245/.321/.350 overall.

Huston Street pitched a perfect ninth inning Sunday to earn the save against the Tigers.

Street mowed through the top of the Tigers order to close it out, striking out Miguel Cabrera to end it. It was his third save since joining the Angels and 27th overall this year. Street has made a seamless transition back to the American League and is one of the best closing options going right now as a dominant stopper on a very good team.

Hector Santiago allowed one run on three hits over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Tigers on Sunday.

Santiago didn't walk a batter while striking out three. The left-hander is still the owner of an ugly 2-7 record, but he lowered his ERA below four (3.86) for the first time this season with Sunday's outing. He'll look for his third win of the year Saturday at the Rays.

Josh Hamilton is back in the Angels' lineup Sunday.

Hamilton has been dealing with nagging left knee soreness since before the All-Star break. He received a cortisone shot after exiting Friday's game and sat out Saturday, but the outfielder is feeling much better. Hamilton sports a .291/.366/.427 batting line with five homers and 29 RBI over 54 contests this season.

Josh Hamilton (knee) is expected to return to the lineup Sunday.

Hamilton sat out Saturday after being removed from Friday's contest with a sore left knee. It's an ailment he's dealt with since before the All-Star break, forcing him to DH a handful of times over the last couple weeks. However, he's feeling much better. "He feels good," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Saturday. "In fact, he wanted to try to play today."
Jul 27 - 11:55 AM

Matt Shoemaker allowed three hits over seven innings and combined with two relievers on a shutout of the Tigers on Saturday.

Just when it seemed Shoemaker's run of good luck was up, he comes up with a gem against one of the AL's best lineups to improve to 8-3 with a 4.13 ERA. Whatever chances there were of the Angels trading for another starting pitcher took a hit tonight. Still, we don't recommend Shoemaker as a mixed-league pickup.
Jul 27 - 12:44 AM

Efren Navarro hit his first big-league homer off Justin Verlander in Saturday's win over the Tigers.

Navarro also had an RBI groundout and a walk in the game. He's 10-for-30 since coming up from Triple-A on July 12, and he deserves to be in the lineup against right-handers on a regular basis for now.
Jul 27 - 12:39 AM

C.J. Wilson (ankle) will make a rehab start Monday with Double-A Arkansas.

Wilson has been out retroactive to July 1 with a right ankle sprain. He should be cleared to rejoin the Angels rotation after his one minor league rehab outing.
Jul 26 - 5:55 PM

Angels optioned RHP Fernando Salas to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Salas has a 3.14 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP in 34 1/3 innings this year for the Angels. He'll be back soon.
Jul 26 - 5:04 PM

Josh Hamilton (knee) is out of the Angels' starting lineup on Saturday night against the Tigers.

Hamilton was removed from Friday's game after complaining of the knee discomfort and will get at least one full day of rest. J.B. Shuck was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday to provide outfield depth.
Jul 26 - 5:03 PM

Angels recalled OF J.B. Shuck from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Shuck has hit just .173/.193/.259 in 81 at-bats this season for the Angels. He will serve as temporary outfield depth with Josh Hamilton nursing a sore knee.
Jul 26 - 4:58 PM

Angels signed LHP Randy Wolf to a minor league contract.

The veteran left-hander opted out of his contract with the Orioles earlier in the month after he wasn't promoted to the big leagues. He'll function as additional rotation depth for the Angels in the minor leagues.
Jul 26 - 2:32 PM

After replacing an injured Josh Hamilton, Efren Navarro went 2-for-3 with a go-ahead single Friday in the Angels' 2-1 win over the Tigers.

Both Angels runs came in the sixth, as Kole Calhoun doubled in Chris Iannetta and Navarro singled in Calhoun. Navarro is hitting .333 with a 3/4 K/BB ratio in 27 at-bats since being called up on July 12. It makes sense for the Angels to use him against all right-handers right now, but they haven't made any sort of commitment to him yet.
