Top Angels News

  • Angels' Justin Bour: Latches on with Angels

    Bour agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Angels on Wednesday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Bour split time with the Marlins and Phillies in 2018, slashing a combined .227/.341/.404 with 20 homers across 141 games. He posted an .819 OPS against right-handed pitching in 2018 -- compared to his .570 mark against southpaws -- so he seems like a strong candidate to settle into the strong side of a platoon at first base with Albert Pujols.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Expected to bat second

    Manager Brad Ausmus said he is anticipating Trout hitting second in the Angels' lineup next year, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Trout spent the majority of this past season split between the second and third spots in the order, though Ausmus appears to have a plan in place to put him in the two hole heading into spring training. The bottom line is that there's not much of a difference between these spots for a player of Trout's caliber, but he may wind up scoring a few more runs and having fewer RBI chances if this intention holds true.

  • Angels' Jo Adell: Potential for MLB debut in 2019

    Adell (back) could make his major-league debut as early as this upcoming season, according to manager Brad Ausmus, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Specifically, Ausmus said "it's a possibility" that we could see Adell on the Angels in 2019, though anything more than a September callup seems unlikely considering he's only played 17 games at the Double-A level. Look for Adell to begin the year back at Double-A Mobile with a promotion to Triple-A Salt Lake on the horizon.

  • Angels' Shohei Ohtani: Status uncertain for start of camp

    Manager Brad Ausmus said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Ohtani (elbow) to be ready for the beginning of spring training, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Ohtani underwent Tommy John surgery in early October and has continued to progress on the right track, though the Angels have refrained from putting any sort of timetable on the 24-year-old. It's abundantly clear that the organization is not going to rush him back. Ohtani will exclusively serve as a DH for the club in 2019 following his elbow procedure. Expect updates on Ohtani's status throughout the winter.

  • Angels' Albert Pujols: Cleared for light workouts

    Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Tuesday that Pujols (elbow, knee) has been cleared to resume light lower-body workouts, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Pujols' 2018 season came to an end when he required surgery in late August to address a left knee injury. At the time of the procedure, Pujols was expected to require 6-to-8 weeks to recover, but that timeline has apparently dragged on a little longer than anticipated. With spring training still two months away, Pujols still has plenty of time to get himself in shape for his age-39 campaign. Pujols also used the down time from the knee surgery to also address a bone spur in his right elbow, but he has already healed up from that procedure and has resumed full upper-body workouts.

  • Angels' Wilfredo Tovar: Inks minor-league deal with Angels

    Tovar signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Tovar has appeared in nine career games at the MLB level, but none since 2014. His contract with the Angels includes an invitation to big-league spring training, but the organization is likely just viewing him as a depth option for Triple-A Salt Lake. The infielder spent the 2018 campaign exclusively at the Triple-A level in the Cardinals organization, slashing .297/.342/.386 with five home runs and 11 steals across 389 plate appearances at Memphis.

  • Angels' Matt Ramsey: Inks minors deal with Angels

    Ramsey signed a minor-league contract that includes an inviation to spring training with the Angels on Tuesday Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Ramsey spent last season with Triple-A Fresno after failing to make the Astros' Opening Day roster and had a 2.30 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 54:16 K:BB across 47 innings of relief. The 29-year-old previously showed potential as a prospect but was struck by injury and pitched in only 16 games between 2015 and 2016, and is still looking to make his MLB debut.

  • Angels' Cesar Puello: Joins Angels

    Puello signed a minor-league contract with the Angels that includes an invitation to spring training, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Puello had a solid season for Triple-A Reno with a .317/.426/.454 slash line before being released by the Diamondbacks in August, and finished the season with the Giants. The 27-year-old played 18 games between the Angels and Rays in 2017, but has otherwise been stuck in neutral at Triple-A since 2014.

  • Angels' Forrest Snow: Signs MiLB deal with Angels

    Snow signed a minor-league contract with the Angels that includes an invite to spring training, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Snow spent the 2018 season with Triple-A Durham after failing to make an impact in spring training with the Rays, and had a 4.82 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 112:37 K:BB over 117.2 innings. The 29-year-old has yet to make his major-league debut and faces long odds to make the Angels' Opening Day roster.

  • Angels' Shohei Ohtani: Regains full range of motion

    Ohtani (elbow) continues to make progress after undergoing Tommy John surgery and now has full range of motion in his right elbow, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Ohtani is set for an evaluation by doctors from the United States sometime in January. Although he won't be ready to begin a hitting program just yet, it's positive news that he's continuing to make significant progress without setbacks. Expect more news on Ohtani's recovery to surface over the course of the next few months.

  • Angels' Luis Garcia: Shipped to Los Angeles

    Garcia was traded from the Phillies to the Angels on Thursday in exchange for Jose Alvarez, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Garcia struggled out of the bullpen for the Phillies in 2018, posting a 6.07 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with 51 strikeouts over 46 innings. Despite his woes, the 31-year-old possesses a lively fastball and will look for a fresh start with the Angels in 2019.

  • Angels' Jarrett Parker: Signs minors deal with Angels

    Parker signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Thursday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

    Parker didn't play affiliated ball in 2018 after being cut loose by the Giants prior to the season. The soon-to-be 30-year-old owns a career .257/.335/.456 slash line across parts of three major-league seasons (2015-17). He figures to serve as organizational outfield depth for the Angels.
