by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Angels left fielder Collin Cowgill was a late scratch from Sunday's lineup. He was replaced by Matt Joyce

Cowgill has been bothered by a sore back and was unable to complete pregame batting practice, per MLB.com.

Also, with a lefthander facing the Angels, second baseman Johnny Giavotella is out of the lineup for just the fourth time this season. He's replaced by Taylor Featherston.

Angels give second baseman Johnny Giavotella a breather
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Angels second baseman Johnny Giavotella is out of the starting lineup for the first time since April 25. Giavotella had started each of the last 21 games for manager Mike Scioscia, hitting a .247 clip with three doubles and eight RBI over that stretch.

Scioscia decided to give him a day off, however, and will give Taylor Featherston the start at the keystone position. Featherstone was also in the lineup at third base on Tuesday, and has just one hit in 16 at-bats this season.

Angels 2B Johnny Giavotella making the most out of opportunity
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Angels infielder Johnny Giavotella has never had more than 181 at-bats in any single season. So far in 2015, he has 84, and is likely in line for many more this season. 

Giavotella has become the starting second baseman for manager Mike Scioscia, as he has started all but two of the team's 28 games this season. And he has rewarded his skipper's faith by hitting a clean .286 with 12 RBI, including a walk-off double in Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Mariners. It was his fifth game-winning RBI of the season.

"He's just a tough out," Scioscia said, per MLB.com. "He's been a tough out his whole life, at every level in the Minor Leagues. Now he's getting an opportunity in the big leagues, and he's shown that he gives a tough at-bat every time. It's important to our club. We talk about the guys that we need to get into their game, but Johnny Giavotella has been one of the bright spots."

As long as he stays healthy and productive, Giavotella should easily surpass his career-high of 181 at-bats, among other offensive categories.

Angels' Joyce, Giavotella swap places in batting order Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Angels manager Mike Scioscia swapped left fielder Matt Joyce and second baseman Johnny Giavotella in the batting order for Monday's game against the Mariners. Giavotella hit sixth, while Joyce, who has just one hit in 21 career at-bats against the M's starter Felix Hernandez, is now batting seventh.

Joyce is also struggling at the plate recently. He has just four hits in his last 10 games and only one RBI. Giavotella, meanwhile, has been a bit of a sparkplug for the Angels. He's hitting .250 (8 for 32) with three RBI over his last 10 games.
