Johnny Giavotella hopes to make better impression with Angels
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Angels second baseman Johnny Giavotella is hoping to make a better impression with his new club than he did with the Royals, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Giavotella, who was acquired by the Angels from the Royals in exchange for right-hander Brian Broderick this offseason, beat out Grant Green and Josh Rutledge for the second base job. He is hitting .444/.500/.444 through three games. He entered 2015 with a .238 average in 125 big-league games.

"Any time you're called up to the big leagues, it's an opportunity to show them what you can do at this level," Giavotella said. "If it's 10 at-bats or 100 at-bats, you have to utilize that to your advantage.

"Unfortunately, in Kansas City, I don't think I made a big enough impression for them to feel confident enough to put me in the lineup every day at second base, so they chose to go with other guys."

Angels' Johnny Giavotella: 'I think I've opened some eyes'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels second baseman Johnny Giavotella has appeared to win the second-base competition, though he's not getting ahead of himself, MLB.com reports.

"Whether I'm in Triple-A or the big leagues," Giavotella said, "I'm going to prepare myself the same way and make sure I'm ready."

Giavotella is out of minir-league options and has hit .366/.422/.634 with four doubles, two triples and one home run in 41 spring at-bats.

"I think I've opened some eyes that I am capable of being a big leaguer; that I'm a quality option to be that guy to fill the void of Howie Kendrick," Giavotella said. "I think I showed them that I bring a lot of energy to each game, help the lineup out offensively. Even my defense; I feel like I've given them confidence that I can go out and make any play out there."

Giavotella is in the team's starting lineup Monday and batting ninth in what could be a preview of the Angels' regular-season lineup.
