Bemboom went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a win over the Padres on Wednesday. Bemboom got the start at catcher and slotted into the eighth spot in the order. He capped a three-homer third inning for the Angels with a solo shot to right field. The 30-year-old is slashing .217/.327/.435 with three homers in 57 plate appearances this season.
Bemboom went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 8-4 loss to the Rockies. Bemboom's ninth-inning blast off Rockies closer Daniel Bard gave the Angels a short-lived 4-3 lead. The 30-year-old Bemboom now has two homers, three RBI and eight runs scored across 46 plate appearances this season.
Bemboom will start at catcher and will bat eighth Sunday against the Mariners. Bemboom was expected to receive Sunday off, but he'll be in the lineup for a second straight contest after top backstop Jason Castro was scratched for an unspecified reason. In Saturday's 16-3 win, Bemboom was one of several Angels to enjoy a productive day at the dish, going 2-for-4 with three runs scored.
Bemboom went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a run-scoring walk in Thursday's loss to San Francisco. Bemboom entered the game in the second inning after starter Max Stassi was forced to leave after suffering a right knee contusion. Bemboom took advantage of the opportunity, going deep to right field in the sixth inning and drawing a bases-loaded walk in the seventh. With Jason Castro recently returning to the lineup after missing multiple games due to a stiff neck, Bemboom was essentially serving as an emergency option as the team's third catcher, though he could now be in line for an occasional start if Stassi is forced to miss any time.
Bemboom was recalled by the Angels on Saturday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Bemboom will give the Angels added depth behind the plate, with Jason Castro dealing with a stiff neck. Castro remains day-to-day and was not placed on the injured list to create a spot for Bemboom, so it's possible Bemboom's stay on the active roster will be a short one. The 30-year-old hit just .130/.145/.204 in his 25-game debut last season.
