    Angels spring training: Chicago White Sox 5, Angels 3

    Angels fall, 7-3, to Padres in spring game
    San Diego 7, Angels 3 AT THE PLATE: Most of the regulars did not play. Grant Green, who is competing for the second-base job, had two hits and is batting .429 (six for 14) for the spring. "He's definitely ready for the challenge to help us offensively,"...

    Angels' David Freese looks better at third base
    Angels third baseman David Freese charged a slow roller to his left and made a barehand grab and off-balance throw to first to end the fourth inning Wednesday. The play won't draw comparisons to Brooks Robinson or make Freese a Gold Glove candidate, but...

  • Angels' Andrew Heaney, Nick Tropeano make spring debuts against Reds

    Angels' Andrew Heaney, Nick Tropeano make spring debuts against Reds

     Cam Bedrosian hopes to follow in dad's footsteps, earn spot with Angels
    Cam Bedrosian was practically baptized in a major league clubhouse. He was born on Oct. 2, 1991, and three weeks later his father, then a Minnesota Twins reliever, passed him around the Metrodome locker room before Game 6 of the World Series against the...
