Angels' Johnny Giavotella returns from DL, back in lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Angels second baseman Johnny Giavotella (illness) is back in the lineup Friday against the Mariners.

Giavotella was placed on the disabled toward the end of August with a condition known as fourth nerve palsy, but he has apparently been progressing well despite the issue. He's back in the lineup as the second baseman, batting ninth, and figures to see the majority of the starts down the stretch.

Angels 2B Johnny Giavotella could return this weekend
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Angels second baseman Johnny Giavotella (illness) could return this weekend, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

A condition known as fourth nerve palsy has inhibited Giavotella's vision, causing him to see double and miss over a month of action, but manager Mike Sciscia said Tuesday that the second baseman's vision is all good now. Giavotella progressed from normal batting practice to facing live pitching Tuesday, and it sounds like he could bump Taylor Featherston to the bench as soon as Friday.

Angels' Johnny Giavotella (illness) takes batting practice Tuesday
by CBSSports.com Staff | CBSSports.com

Angels second baseman Johnny Giavotella (illness) took batting practice Tuesday for the first time since having vision issues, The Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reports.

He still has some work to do, but it is certainly good to see that Giavotella is progressing. There is not much time left in the season for Giavotella to make an impact in fantasy leagues, but it does sound like he will return sometime before the end of the season.

Angels' Johnny Giavotella having trouble seeing
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Angels second baseman Johnny Giavotella is on the disabled list because he's had issues seeing, reports the Orange County Register. Giavotella has been seeing double, but he hopes the issue will be cleared up before the season ends so he can return. He was recently diagnosed with a cranial nerve condition, according to ESPN.com

"With this issue, it could last a couple of days to a couple of weeks. So I'm just being patient with it, just taking it a day at a time," Giavotella said. "I was concerned that it might be vertigo at first. It's nothing that they can go in there and fix. It just takes time for it to repair itself.
