Angels recalled RHP Cam Bedrosian from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Bedrosian has posted a 7.59 ERA, 1.97 WHIP, and 11/7 K/BB ratio in 10 2/3 innings this season at the major league level. The 22-year-old right-hander will pitch in low-leverage situations out of the Anaheim bullpen.

Angels purchased the contract of LHP Wade LeBlanc from Triple-A Salt Lake.

LeBlanc is available out of the bullpen for now but could start in Garrett Richards' place on Monday against the Marlins. Richards is likely done for the season after suffering an ugly left knee injury Wednesday in Boston. LeBlanc is not a good fantasy bet.

Angels optioned OF Brennan Boesch to Triple-A Salt Lake.

The Angels had to use six pitchers in relief of injured starter Garrett Richards on Wednesday, so Boesch will be swapped out for a fresh arm. Boesch hasn't helped his cause when he's been up, batting .129/.152/.194 in 31 at-bats with the Angels this season. He'll likely be back up in September.

Josh Hamilton went 2-for-3 with a double, two sac flies and three RBI in the Angels' 8-3 defeat of the Red Sox on Wednesday.

One of the sac flies was hit to deep right and would have been a homer in at least a few parks. Hamilton is definitely making better contact the last two days after getting a two-day mental break. It's the first time since June 11 & 13 that he's gone consecutive games without striking out.

Garrett Richards suffered a left knee patellar injury in Wednesday's game.

Richards was running to cover first base in the second inning when his left knee gave out. He had to be placed on a stretcher and carted off the field. While the Angels haven't given any idea as to his timetable, the right-hander is likely done for the year.

Garrett Richards left Wednesday's start against the Red Sox with a potentially serious right knee injury.

Richards was covering first base when his knee buckled, and he remained on the ground for several minutes. He was eventually carted off the field, an ominous sign. Richards had allowed five hits and two runs in his 1 2/3 innings of work before exiting. The Angels should update his status soon, but it would be a devastating blow if he's lost for a substantial period of time.

C.J. Cron is likely to be recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake this weekend.

The Angels could use the right-handed bat against Jon Lester and Scott Kazmir this weekend against the A's. Cron is batting .266/.295/.462 with nine homers and 29 RBI over 62 games with the Angels this season.

Grant Green (back) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment by the end of this week.

Green has begun to ramp up the intensity of his workouts and is on track to return to the Angels next week. He has been sidelined since July 23 with a lumbar sprain.

Chris Iannetta doubled in Brennan Boesch in the top of the ninth to lead the Angels to a 4-3 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

It was an unusual way to get to Koji Uehara, who is typically unbeatable unless he surrenders a homer. Tonight, after entering a tie game, he lost on back-to-back doubles with two outs. Iannetta finished with two doubles in the game. He has just five homers this year, but with his average up -- his .270 mark is about 35 points better than his career average -- he's been a very solid regular once again.
Aug 19 - 11:34 PM

The struggling Josh Hamilton went 0-for-3 with a HBP in his return to the Angels' lineup on Tuesday.

Hamilton hit the ball hard in one of his three at-bats and didn't strike out in any of the others, so perhaps that'd qualify as progress. He was held out of the previous two games to give him a break mentally.
Aug 19 - 11:29 PM

Josh Hamilton is back in the Angels' starting lineup Tuesday against the Red Sox.

The struggling Hamilton has missed back-to-back starts in order to get a mental break and work on his approach. He'll hit cleanup in his return to action.

Kole Calhoun reached base in all four plate appearances on Monday as the Angels defeated the Red Sox 4-2.

Calhoun has been red-hot lately. Monday's performance marked his seventh multi-hit game in his last nine games, in which he's batting .415 (17-for-41). Calhoun has been a godsend at the top of the lineup for the Angels, as he's slashing .295/.351/.490 with 13 home runs and 40 RBI on the season.
Aug 18 - 11:06 PM

Kevin Jepsen escaped ninth-inning trouble to pick up his first save of the season in Monday's win against the Red Sox.

Closer Huston Street had pitched on three consecutive days, so manager Mike Scioscia called on Jepsen to get the job done. He allowed lead-off singles, putting runners on first and third. Yoenis Cespedes knocked in a run with a ground out, the second out of the inning, and Jepsen was able to get Mike Napoli to fly out to end the game. Save opportunities should continue to be few and far between for Jepsen going forward.
Aug 18 - 11:03 PM

C.J. Wilson was unable to make it through the sixth inning, but picked up his 10th win as the Angels topped the Red Sox on Monday.

Wilson's line was all about the fives: 5 1/3 innings, five hits, five walks, five strikeouts. He only allowed one run, however, which came in the fourth on a Brock Holt single. The left-hander has shown improvement as the month of August has progressed, but his overall stats aren't very good. He has a 4.59 ERA, a 1.42 WHIP, and a 121/61 K/BB ratio. Wilson will take on the Athletics in Oakland on Saturday.
Aug 18 - 10:54 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Monday that Grant Green (back) returning before the end of the week is "probably a long shot."

Green ran the bases recently at extended spring training and is nearing a rehab assignment. However, it sounds like he won't be activated until at least next week. The 26-year-old has been out since July 23 with a lumbar sprain.
