  • Angels' Kole Calhoun is proving himself worthy of a full-time role

    Managers don't like to tinker with platoons that are working, but sometimes players can mash their way into full-time roles, as Kole Calhoun is doing with the Angels. Calhoun has shared right field — and the leadoff spot — with Collin...
  • Angels' Garrett Richards could make All-Star team if Price not right

    Garrett Richards was asked after Friday night’s 3-0 win over the Texas Rangers if he had taken the mound with a chip on his shoulder after being snubbed in the selection process for the All-Star Game last Sunday. “Of course,” the...

    Angels' Matt Shoemaker outduels Rangers' Yu Darvish

    Angels' Kevin Jepsen wants extended stay in back of bullpen

  • Kevin Jepsen lets Howie Kendrick turn key double play in Angels' win

    The natural instinct for a pitcher on a grounder up the middle is to lunge for the ball with your glove, stop it with your foot, do anything to knock it down. Angels reliever Kevin Jepsen fought that urge in the seventh inning Tuesday night, and it led to...

    Much-maligned Angels bullpen provides relief in win over Twins
    The Angels bullpen had taken a pounding in the previous eight games, allowing 17 earned runs in 21 2/3 innings and blowing four saves. Relievers entered Tuesday night with an 11-8 record, 4.49 earned run average and an American League-high 12 blown saves....

    Grant Green glanced at the lineup card on his way into the Angels clubhouse Wednesday and saw he'd be making his first big league start at third base. There were no double-takes, no raised eyebrows. "Another day," Green said, "another position." A...

    Angels' Garrett Richards continues to build All-Star game credentials
    Angels pitcher Garrett Richards was asked after Wednesday night’s 6-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins if his 2/3-inning, five-hit, five-run shellacking at the hands of the Oakland Athletics on May 30 was a “defining point” of his...
  • Angels' Albert Pujols remains focused and gets results

    Angels' Albert Pujols remains focused and gets results
    The word "slump" exists for Albert Pujols, and the Angels slugger will occasionally drop it into conversation, but that doesn't mean he puts much stock into it. "I don't believe in slumps," Pujols said. "I think that's something people have created to...
  • Angels acquire Jason Grilli from Pirates for Ernesto Frieri

    The Angels swapped their demoted closer for another on Friday, acquiring Jason Grilli from the Pittsburgh Pirates for Ernesto Frieri. Grilli, 38, was a first-time All-Star last season, but he has a 4.87 earned-run average this season. He has blown...
