Andrelton Simmons Will Not Be The Leadoff Man Anytime Soon

In 2013 Andrelton Simmons was in the leadoff spot for the Atlanta Braves more often than not. As is the case presently, Simmons was every bit as quick, light on his feet, and solid at putting the ball in play as anyone around him. However, as 2013 progressed, Simmons’ numbers declined in a dramatic way. His OBP melted below the .300 mark in the later stages of July. This is not...

Tyler Skaggs and C.J. Cron headed to 10-day DL, Daniel Wright and Jose Valdez get nods

When Mike Scioscia took Tyler Skaggs out of last night’s game, I got worried. You know why. We ALL know why; but I still had to do my best to not think the worst, in light of the news or injury updates we’re accustomed to hear. I was hoping it was just Scioscia being dumb; that would have been the GOOD outcome. Then, to add to the worry pile, C.J. Cron fouled a ball off his foot...

The move clears space on the Angels’ 40-man roster for righty Jose Valdez, who was promoted today along with fellow righty Daniel Wright as the team placed C.J. Cron and Tyler Skaggs on the disabled list. The 24-year-old Mahle pitched 18 1/3 innings of relief as a rookie for...

C.J. Cron Appears Headed for Another Disappointing Season.

Maybe it was just wishful thinking. In retrospect, it seems silly to think that C.J. Cron was going to have a breakout season for the Angels. Up to this point, he has never been able to put it all together consistently. Either struggles, injury, inconsistency, or all three has kept Cron from ever justifying his first-round draft status. Cron just hasn’t been able to establish himself...

Angels Place C.J. Cron On DL

The Angels have placed first baseman C.J. Cron on the disabled list with a foot injury, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times tweets. Lefty starter Tyler Skaggs also appears likely to head to the DL with oblique trouble.

JC Ramirez Got Better As a Starter

It’s not uncommon for a pitcher to experience difficulty as a starter, move to the bullpen, and benefit from almost immediate success. That’s a story we’ve heard plenty. We’re seeing it in Arizona right now, for example — with both Archie Bradley and Rubby de la Rosa — but they’re hardly the only cases. Bullpens are littered with failed starters. The best relief pitcher...

Periodic Mike Trout Update

If you sort the wRC+ leaderboard, you find Mike Trout sandwiched in between Eugenio Suarez and Steven Souza Jr. That’s the bad way to spin it. The good way to spin it is that Trout is in sixth with a wRC+ of 210, and that would also easily be the best mark of his career. I don’t have any good reason to write this right now, except that it’s Mike Trout, so, hey, why not? Does...
