    Red-hot Cameron Maybin leads Angels to win over Rays

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. >> Cameron Maybin apparently wants to hang on to the leadoff spot. Maybin, who insisted that it’s not coincidence that he got hot when the Angels put him at the top of the order, homered and reached base four times in the Angels’ 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night. With two hits and two walks, Maybin is now 13 for 24 with seven walks since the Angels moved him to the leadoff spot after the injury to Yunel...

    Angels jump to early lead, cruise past Mets

    NEW YORK >> This is what kind of afternoon it was for the Angels: Jesse Chavez hit before he pitched. “That’s always a good sign to any ballgame,” Chavez said with a smile. “If you can bat before you throw a pitch, it’s always comforting.” Chavez, who was pitching with the handicap of a sinus problem, could at least relax with a bounty of runs behind him, a five-run lead before he took the mound in the bottom of the first. The...

    Cam Bedrosian ready to get on the mound

    NEW YORK >> Cam Bedrosian is about to take a key step toward the end of what has been a longer-than-expected stint on the disabled list. Bedrosian is scheduled to throw off a mound today, Manager Mike Scioscia said. It would be his first time off a mound since he was placed on the disabled list with a strained groin April 22. At the time, Bedrosian felt he would miss only two weeks. Scioscia said Bedrosian’s bullpen session will be “light.”...

    Alex Meyer struggles in Angels’ loss to Mets

    NEW YORK >> Once again, Alex Meyer’s night was all about a few shining moments amid an uneven performance. In that sense it was similar to many of his other Angels’ outings, when he showed flashes of brilliance to go along with the rough spots that have prevented him from being a consistent big league pitcher. The difference this time was that he mixed in an offensive highlight, collecting a hit in his first plate appearance since high...

    Evaluation of Doug Fister begins

    NEW YORK >> When Billy Eppler was asked how long he anticipated Doug Fister pitching in the minors, the Angels general manager answered: “That’s going to be up to him.” The Angels’ deal with Fister, which was completed on Saturday, includes no guarantees for Fister, financially or otherwise. The Angels signed him to take a look at him, and they will then evaluate when — or if — he comes up to join their...

    Without Albert Pujols, Angels offense goes silent in loss to Mets

    NEW YORK >> Just when it seemed the Angels’ offense was beginning to bust out, this happened. Some it was Jacob deGrom. Some of it was playing without Albert Pujols, who has a tight hamstring. Some of it was playing with a pitcher in the lineup. Add it up, and you get zero. Zero runs. The Angels’ 3-0 loss to the New York Mets on Friday night came on the heels of scoring 28 runs during the four-game winning streak they brought to town. “All...

    Angels’ Albert Pujols out with tight hamstring

    NEW YORK >> Another week, another hamstring. A week after the Angels waited on Mike Trout’s tight hamstring, they are now without Albert Pujols because he tweaked his right hamstring. Pujols underwent an MRI exam on Friday morning, which he said came back clean. Pujols, who felt it when he was trying to go second on a base hit Wednesday, was not in the lineup on Friday night at Citi Field. He is hoping to be back either Saturday or...
