Angels OF Matt Joyce hopes hit signals end of slump
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Angels outfielder Matt Joyce saw his eight-game hitless streak come to an end Sunday with an eighth-inning single that ended an 0-for-26 skid. The right fielder, who figures to be a fixture in Los Angeles' lineup with the expected departure of Josh Hamilton, said he hopes the small start will lead to bigger things, according to the Los Angeles Times

"Sometimes it's a tough game," Joyce said. "It seems like you try everything, and you put in so much time and effort and work, it gets to be frustrating. It gets to be hard to swallow and accept it, and hard to keep showing up and grinding it out."

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he will continue to stick with Joyce, who is hitting just .140 on the season.

Angels' Grant Green starting at second base Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Angels will start Grant Green at second base Saturday, giving Johnny Giavotella just his second day off of the season, the team announced.

Green, who was called up by Los Angeles Friday, lost out on the position battle in spring training to Giavotella and is hitting .328 with four doubles and three triples in 61 at-bats so far this season for Triple-A. 

Also in the starting lineup Saturday is Matt Joyce and Drew Butera, giving Collin Cowgill and Chris Iannetta the day off. The Angels are currently the favorites Saturday (-160) against the Rangers.

Angels' Matt Joyce dropped to sixth in lineup
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels left fielder Matt Joyce is batting sixth for a second straight day in Thursday's matchup with the A's.

Joyce served as the team's cleanup hitter against right-handed starters over the first 13 games of the season, but he's in the No. 6 slot for the second straight day Thursday due to his offensive struggles, the Orange County Register reports.

"Right now Matt just needs to take a half step back," manager Mike Scioscia said. "We moved him down in the order. Hopefully he’ll start to find some timing and find some confidence. Right now he’s searching. His at-bats showed early on that he was he starting to come around. He’s gone the other way right now. This will just take a little pressure off him."

Joyce has hit just .152/.184/.217 with five RBI in 46 at-bats.
