Minor League free agents …

Baseball America compiled a list of Minor League free agents by club on Tuesday, and the Angels had 18. Among the notables is center fielder Jeremy Moore, who played in eight games with the Angels in 2011, was invited to Spring Training earlier this year and missed all of 2012 after undergoing hip surgery.

Here’s the full slate from the publication …

LHP: Manuel Flores (HiA), Matt Meyer (AAA), Greg Smith (AAA)

2B: Renny Osuna (AA)

OF: Cory Aldridge (AAA), Angel Castillo (AA), Trevor Crowe (AAA), Doug Deeds (AAA), Moore (AAA)


Game 103: Angels-Rangers …

As expected, it’s over 100 degrees here in Arlington, which means the ball should be flying tonight. That could especially be the case with the struggling Roy Oswalt and Ervin Santana facing off. But then there’s the fact that the Angels haven’t scored a run in 23 straight innings and the Rangers are 0-for-their-last-29 with runners in scoring position. Something’s gotta give, right? Angels come into this four-game set five games back in the AL West and are 5-4 against the Rangers this season. 

Angels (55-47)

Mike Trout, LF
Torii Hunter, RF
Albert Pujols, 1B
Kendrys Morales, DH
Alberto Callaspo, 3B
Howie Kendirck, 2B
Maicer Izturis, SS
Peter Bourjos, CF
Bobby Wilson, C

Pitching: RH Santana (4-10, 6.00 ERA)

Rangers (59-41)

Ian Kinsler, 2B
Elvis Andrus, SS
Adrian Beltre, 3B
Nelson Cruz, RF
Josh Hamilton, CF
Michael Young, LF
Mike Napoli, C
Mitch Moreland, 1B

Pitching: RH Oswalt (3-1, 5.22 ERA)

Some pregame notes …

  • Back problems continue to plague Dan Haren, to the point where he may not make his next scheduled turn on Wednesday. Haren came out of his Friday start a little stiff, and though Mike Scioscia said the pain is “not connected” to the lower-back stiffness that landed him on the DL in early July (it’s a little higher), he may be pushed back at least a day or two, with Garrett Richards or Jerome Williams (both currently out of the rotation) taking his place. More should be on the site soon.
  • Mark Trumbo is out of the lineup with upper back spasms, suffered while taking batting practice on Sunday. He indicated that the move is mostly precautionary and should be available if needed.
  • Some good news: Trout is back, and says he feels perfectly fine after being scratched from Sunday’s lineup with a left knee contusion.
  • Erick Aybar took some ground balls and hit in the cage pregame. Scioscia says he could be ready to return for the series against the Athletics that begins early next week.

And the Dolphins will look to pass more in the red zone this season.
