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.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Garrett Richards is progressing well in his rehab from knee surgery, but he will not ready by Opening Day, reports MLB.com.

Garrett Richards is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday, but Scioscia said he will not be ready until two-to-three weeks after the season begins.

"He knows it," Scioscia said. "He knows it. He's not going to be able to rush it because our medical staff is not going to let him. There's a progression. He has to pass every plateau. It's great that he's going to shoot for being ready by Opening Day, he's working very hard to be ready by Opening Day -- but he's not going to be ready Opening Day."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels second-base prospect Alex Yarbrough is working at first base and third base and in left field this spring, manager Mike Scioscia told MLB.com Saturday.

"Just to see if the versatility is there," Scioscia said.

Yarbrough has made all of his game appearances at second base since being selected in the fourth round of the 2012 draft. He hit 285/.321/.397 with five home runs, 77 RBI and six stolen bases in 544 at-bats.

Angels 1B Albert Pujols: Bring on the shift
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels first baseman Albert Pujols found himself batting against the shift more than any other player in 2014, but he said Friday he's happy to take on the altered defensive alignment, MLB.com reports.

"They think they're screwing with your mind, but actually it's worse because they're telling you how they're going to pitch to you," Pujols said. "So actually it's the opposite. It's helping a hitter to know how they're going to pitch to you."

Pujols also said his right knee, on which he underwent arthroscopic surgery in 2012, finally feels good again.

"Just crossing my fingers," Pujols said. "It's a long season."

Pujols hit .272/.324/.466 with 28 home runs and 105 RBI in 633 at-bats in 2014.

Report: Josh Hamilton decision could come 'in weeks'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

A verdict on a potential Josh Hamilton suspension could come "in weeks," Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports Friday. A report surfaced Thursday that that the Angels outfielder is expected to suspended at least 25 games by Major League Baseball.

Hamilton met with MLB officials on Wednesday and confessed to going on a binge that involved cocaine and alcohol a couple of months ago. Hamilton will meet with a four-doctor panel where they will determine the best course of action for the embattled slugger. The case could then go to an arbitrator, following by the commissioner.

"We have a lot of things on our plate that we have to take care of," manager Mike Scioscia said. "(The Hamilton case) is going to happen in it's own time, and we can't let it affect us."

Hamilton was already expected to miss the beginning of the season due to a shoulder surgery. It's unclear how much longer he'll be out due to a suspension.
