News
Angels pitcher Hector Santiago took the loss on Sunday, giving up three earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 6 2/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Red Sox.

Santiago (3-3) threw a whopping 124 pitches in the outing. He gave up a two-run home run in the second inning but limited the Red Sox to just an RBI sacrifice fly before his exit to earn a quality start.

"I think they lost the leash," Santiago said to the Orange County Register. "That's good. Shows a lot of confidence in me, going out there and trying to prove myself."

Santiago owns a 2.47 ERA and 50:22 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Tigers on Friday.

Ianetta is hitting .172/.263/.276 with two home runs and nine RBI in 87 at-bats this season.

Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson allowed four runs on seven hits in six innings of work in Los Angeles' 8-3 loss to the Red Sox on Saturday.

Wilson had issues in the second inning when Mike Napoli belted a solo shot over the Green Monster. Then in the third, Wilson put runners on first and third for Mookie Betts, who singled to left center, plating another run. Wilson then surrendered a second home run to Mike Napoli, this time a two-run shot.

Wilson, now 2-3, moved his ERA to 3.36 in 59 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Thursday against the Tigers.

News
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.

News
It wasn't long ago that Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver was dealing with a 0-4 start to the season. His ERA stood at 6.29 through his first six starts and his fastball velocity was sitting around 83 mph.

However, days after falling to 0-4 following a May 3 start against the Giants, Weaver began to iron out some mechanical issues, according to MLB.com. He focused on keeping his head "on the target" and throwing through his across-the-body delivery, rather than "pulling off" and not having a direct line to home plate.

The results have been pretty good since fixing the flaws in his delivery. He threw a complete-game shutout May 8 against the Astros to pick up his first win. He is 3-0 with a 1.50 ERA in his last four starts, lowering his ERA to 4.06.

"My front side was kind of erratic and I wanted to clean that up," Weaver said. "But my front side has been a lot better, which leads to a better arm slot, so everything's coming out of the same slot now. It's a good feeling."

News
Angels pitcher Garrett Richards allowed five earned runs during Friday night's 12-5 win over the Red Sox. 

Richards didn't have the best game on the mound but was a beneficiary of a ton of run support from the Angels' offense. The Angels scored nine of their 12 runs in the fifth inning. Richards went six innings and struck out one batter while walking two. 

The five runs are the most Richards has allowed in a game this year. However, the win puts him at 4-2 for the season. He now holds a 2.98 ERA. 

Richards' next start is projected for May 27 against the Padres.

Angels pitcher Cam Bedrosian didn't receive a warm welcome to the majors on Sunday. Bedrosian, who was called up to replace the injured Mike Morin, allowed three runs on four hits in just 1/3 of an inning in Los Angeles' 6-1 loss to the Red Sox.

"Had to give him the ball and hopefully give him a chance to get his feet on the ground and get a good inning," manager Mike Scioscia said to the Orange County Register. "The stuff looked good but he couldn't command it enough to be effective."

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 been in the air a lot the last part of this little dry spell," manager Mike Scioscia said to the Orange County Register. "His game is really line drives, hard groundballs, working counts. I don't think there's pressing. I haven't seen his demeanor change or his game change. We're looking to get our offense deeper, and he’s an important guy to lengthen our lineup."

He's replaced by Taylor Featherston.

The Angels optioned designated hitter C.J. Cron to Triple-A on Monday, reports MLB.com. Cron is hitting .204 with one home run in 98 at-bats this season.

"I wasn't playing much," Cron said, per MLB.com. "Obviously when you're not playing, you're doing something wrong, and the opportunity is not there for you to just prove you belong. I knew in the recent stretch there was a chance [of getting optioned].

"When you're getting at-bats every once in a while, it's hard to get your timing right. That's what I'm going down for, to get better timing and to start swinging like I know I can."

The team plans to call up outfielder Grant Green, sources told MLB.com. Green is 2 for 6 in three games for the Angels this season.
