Joe Smith next in line for Angels closer role?
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Angels reliever Joe Smith seems to be the popular pick for closer-in-waiting, according to the Los Angeles Times

While manager Mike Scioscia said he's not looking to make a change at closer, that hasn't stopped the speculation. Fernando Salas replaced Ernesto Frieri during Wednesday's loss to the Nationals, but Smith seems to be emerging as the prime replacement should Scioscia make the change. Smith had pitched earlier in the game, so Scioscia couldn't go to him with the game on the line late. 

Smith has been solid over 10 innings. He's posted a 3.60 ERA, with 11 strikeouts and three walks.

Ernesto Frieri loses it again
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Angels closer Ernesto Frieri completely melted down in the ninth inning Wednesday, blowing his second save in a 5-4 loss to the Nationals.

Frieri recorded just one out in his attempt to pick up the save, as the Nationals jumped on him immediately. He allowed a solo home run to leadoff the inning, and then allowed three straight to reach base before he was pulled, following a game-tying double by Jayson Werth.

Frieri was ultimately charged with four runs on three hits and a walk in one-third of an inning, as he saw his ERA rise to 9.35. He has two saves in four chances now, and has given up five home runs in 8 2/3 innings of work.

Jered Weaver let down by bullpen
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver put together a solid outing Wednesday against the Nationals, but a bullpen meltdown cost him  the chance to get back to .500 in a 5-4 loss.

Weaver tossed six solid innings in the outing as he recorded his second quality start in a row. He limited the Nationals to just one run while scattering seven hits and a walk, despite striking out a season-low two batters, while throwing 53 of 82 pitches for strikes.

Weaver was in good shape to pick up his second win of the season, but the bullpen let him down. He remains 1-2 with a 4.11 ERA, and will go for the win in his next trip to the mound, Tuesday against the Indians.

Hector Santiago fighting through back trouble
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Angels starter Hector Santiago's numbers aren't eye-popping, but they look a bit more impressive after the 26-year-old revealed he has been pitching through back pain since his first start.

"I just kept aggravating it and throwing, and doing all the workouts and stuff," Santiago said. "It went on for longer than I wanted it to."

Santiago has been dealing with a back injury since the end of the spring, and Sunday's start against the Tigers was the first time he has taken the mound without a setback or flare-up. He is 0-3 with a 3.68 ERA in 22 innings of work.
