Angels' Scioscia weighing second-base options
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels manager Mike Scioscia is weighing how much emphasis to put on spring-training performance as he decides how to approach the second-base position this season, MLB.com reports.

"A lot of it is to see what the best fit is for your group of guys, what your lineup needs are," Scioscia said. "There's an absolute to people winning jobs at spring training. Probably not at the analysis you're looking at -- 'Oh, he hit .340 in spring training' -- but there are a lot of things we're looking at as to how a guy fits in our lineup. You can make the team in spring, for sure, with the things that you show."

Scioscia hasn't ruled out the option of using multiple players at the position as the situation dictates.

"That's one of the options," he said. "There are guys that have the ability to go out there and do what we need to do on the defensive end and the offensive end, and we'll see who emerges and who gives us the best look."

Josh Rutledge highlights a second-base competition that also includes Grant Green, Johnny Giavotella and Taylor Featherston.

Angels' Cam Bedrosian working on location this season
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Angels reliever Cam Bedrosian is working on his location this season, according to MLB.com.

Bedrosian strugged in 19 1/3 innings last season, but knows his stuff can play in the majors. For him, it's all about putting the ball in the right place. "The big thing is just keeping the ball down," he said. "A lot of times last year, it was up too much, getting too excited. Guys get in the box, and you want to do too much with it. The only thing I have to do is just keep the ball down."

Bedrosian said minor-league players will bite on high fastballs, but stressed that players are "a lot more disciplined" in the majors. Though Bedrosian faces an uphill battle to open the year on the 25-man roster, that's his goal this spring. 

The 23-year-old posted a 6.52 ERA over 19 1/3 innings in the majors last season.

Angels' Collin Cowgill not taking spot for granted
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Angels outfielder Collin Cowgill is not taking his spot for granted, according to MLB.com.

"I understand how the game works," Cowgill said. "I understand a lot, maybe more so than a lot of people, because I've found myself in a lot of situations. I don't take anything for granted. So I'm going to keep trying to work and earn it."

Cowgill has spent time with four different teams in his young career, and understands how often you can lose your role. With Josh Hamilton expected to miss time early in the season, it appears Cowgill's spot on the roster is safe, even though he remains skeptical. 

"If [Angels manager Mike] Scioscia's going to play me, it's because I deserve it," Cowgill said. "He's going to play me because he thinks I give him a chance to win, and that's the only way I want it to be."

The 28-year-old hit .250/.330/.354 over 260 at-bats last season.

Angels' Scioscia: Kole Calhoun's 'intensity' a key strength
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels manager Mike Scioscia praised the intensity and enthusiasm of outfielder Kole Calhoun Monday as part of what makes him such a valuable part of the team's lineup, MLB.com reports.

"I think part of what makes Kole a good player is his intensity," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "You need that focus, that intensity to know this is real and it's how you compete. With Kole, it's in him and it bubbles out. He pumps his teammates up and he does a great job setting the tone for us."

"It's how I was raised," Calhoun said. "I'm a pretty passionate person in most everything that I do. I think at this level, you've got to be. You've got to compete on every pitch because that's your livelihood. Everyone's fighting for the same thing and you want to come out on top."

Calhoun excelled as the team's leadoff batter in 2014, hitting .281/.336/.471 with 17 home runs and 58 RBI in 448 at-bats while slotted first.
