Angels SS Erick Aybar smashes his first homer of 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Angels shortstop Erick Aybar has been raking for three weeks, but he did something Friday night he had not done all year.

He homered.

Aybar blasted off with one aboard to put the cherry on top in a nine-run fifth that buried Boston. He had already walked and scored in the inning.

He has hit safely in 16 of his last 18 games and his .325 slugging percentage is at its highest point since the season opener.

Angels' Scioscia: Aybar's OBP won't be off the charts as leadoff man
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Angels manager Mike Scioscia is hoping that shortstop Erick Aybar will add a spark to the offense from the leadoff spot, per the Los Angeles Times.

Aybar spent seven games at the top of the order earlier in the season before taking over the top spot for the foreseeable future on Monday. He is hitting .286 (4 for 14) in his first three games back as the leadoff man, and .387 (24 for 62) with four RBI and a .406 on-base percentage over his last 16 games played.

"I don't think you ever ask a player to do something he's either not comfortable with or not suited for," Scioscia said. "With Erick, although he's not going to see as many pitches as a traditional leadoff guy, he's athletic, he's going to get in scoring position a lot.

"His on-base is not going to be off the charts, but it's not going to be awful, either. He's going to get on base enough, get in scoring position enough to where he can still be effective as a table-setter."

Angels SS Erick Aybar on aches and pains: 'It's bad'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Just call him Aching Erick. Angels shortstop Erick Aybar is having problems with his lower back and hamstrings.

"It's bad," he told MLB.com.

It has not shown at the plate. Aybar has hit in 10 straight games and 14 of his last 15. His average has catapulted during that stretch from .200 to .279, its highest point since April 10.

Angels bat Erick Aybar leadoff, Kole Calhoun cleanup Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Angels have flipped players in two prominent lineup spots for Monday's matchup with the Blue Jays, as shortstop Erick Aybar will lead off while right fielder Kole Calhoun bats cleanup.

Aybar will lead off for the ninth time this season. He's spent most of the year batting fifth or lower, but he was the team's cleanup hitter on Saturday for the first time this season and reprised the role Sunday.

"What Erick doesn't bring in patience, working counts, he brings in just athleticism and still gets on base at a rate which hopefully will set the table for Mike (Trout) and Albert (Pujols) moving forward," manager Mike Scioscia said, per MLB.com. "And also, we have Johnny Giavotella pushed back to ninth, to try to connect him with Mike. Hopefully there will be some table-setting there that's happening, and we'll get to the big guys in our lineup. "

Calhoun has made 28 starts in the leadoff spot, but he did bat cleanup five times in a row starting on April 30, with Aybar serving as the leadoff man in all five games. The team went 1-4 during that stretch, losing four straight games before going back to Calhoun at the leadoff spot.

"As much as we really like Kole in the leadoff spot, and in front of Mike, I think what we're presented with right now just makes the most sense to go with it this way," Scioscia said. "Guys have had a lot of time to get into their game and aren't there yet, so we need to start to take a little pressure off our pitching staff."

The Angels are road favorites (-123) in Toronto on Monday, per VegasInsider.com.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia may move up Erick Aybar to leadoff
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he's thinking about moving up shortstop Erick Aybar in the lineup to leadoff while dropping down right fielder Kole Calhoun towards the middle, reports the Orange County Register.

Aybar, who's primarily hit fifth or sixth this season, has been on a recent tear, batting .417 (15 for 36) over his last 10 games.

Calhoun has hit leadoff in 25 of the Angels' 34 games this season, hitting .314 with three homers and 18 RBI.
