    Angels (48-58) vs. Blue Jays (50-57)

    Game 1 7:05 PM


    RHP Garrett Richards (ERA 4.33 WHIP 1.29 BAA .257)

    Scouting Report: Richards, taking Joe Blanton's rotation spot, shut out the A's through five innings Saturday while making his first start in nearly three months. The 25-year-old is getting the chance to prove he should be a starter in 2014.
    vs.


    RHP Josh Johnson (ERA 6.08 WHIP 1.57 BAA .289)

    Scouting Report: Johnson continues to struggle. He gave up more than five earned runs for the third straight start vs. the Astros in his last outing, giving up a total of seven. The issue stems from him flying open toward the first-base side, hurting his command.
    Game 2 7:05 PM


    RHP Tommy Hanson (ERA 5.15 WHIP 1.51 BAA .280)

    Scouting Report: This will be Hanson's third start since missing nearly a month with a forearm strain. He pitched 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball against the Twins in his first start back, then gave up five runs in 4 2/3 innings to the A's on Sunday.
    vs.


    RHP Todd Redmond (ERA 3.81 WHIP 1.02 BAA .194)

    Scouting Report: Redmond is coming off a career-best performance against the Astros. The right-hander struck out a career-high 10 batters and held Houston to one run over six innings. The 10 strikeouts also tied a club high on the season.
    Game 3 6:05 PM


    RHP Jered Weaver (ERA 2.84 WHIP 1.12 BAA .232)

    Scouting Report: Weaver is finally resembling the ace-like pitcher with which the Angels are familiar, giving up one run in 21 2/3 innings over his past three starts. He pitched seven innings of one-run ball vs. the Rangers in a no-decision Monday.
    vs.


    RHP Esmil Rogers (ERA 4.36 WHIP 1.43 BAA .283)

    Scouting Report: Rogers is coming off his worst start of the season after he allowed eight runs over 4 1/3 innings to the A's. He is now 0-2 with a 6.43 over his past five starts and it's possible he could be running out of gas after beginning the year in the 'pen.
    Game 4 12:35 PM


    LHP C.J. Wilson (ERA 3.48 WHIP 1.34 BAA .245)

    Scouting Report: Wilson's recent run of dominance ended with an ugly outing against the Rangers on Tuesday, which saw him give up six runs on 11 hits and three walks in four innings. Wilson had a 1.25 ERA in his previous five starts.
    vs.


    LHP Mark Buehrle (ERA 4.27 WHIP 1.30 BAA .266)

    Scouting Report: Buehrle hasn't allowed a run during his past 20 innings in a streak that dates back to July 20 vs. Tampa Bay. It's also just five innings shy of his career-best mark set back in the 2005 season. He is 6-4 with a 2.96 ERA over his past 13 starts.

    I was thinking about it today and its no wonder we have no pitching depth in the minor leagues.

    The two guys highly rated and close to the major leagues were both transitioned to the bullpen. Maronde coming in the season was rated as our second overall prospect by both John Sickles and Baseball America. He only had 32 innings in Double-A coming into the season, and needed more time at the Double-A level. If we would have kept him in the rotation he would now have close to 150 innings under his belt in Double-A and likely be ready for a spot in the big league rotation on a full term basis. Going into 2012 Richards was rated as our #2 prospect by John Sickles (behind only Trout) and #3 by Baseball America. Richards should have been in the Triple-A rotation to start the season, and should have been in the big league rotation to stay after he made his first start on April 13th. He should have Jerome's 14 starts, paired with his 5, for almost a full season in the big league rotation so far.

    Going into 2014

    Weaver
    Wilson
    Free Agent/Trade
    Richards
    Maronde/Hanson

    is a lot better than

    Weaver
    Wilson
    Free Agent/Trade
    Hanson
    Richards/Free Agent/Trade

    We have no real starting pitching prospect in either Triple-A or Double-A, and only one at the Advanced Single-A level. Roth is about the only guy with the future in a big league rotation in Double-A/Triple-A and he is a 5th starter at best, but looks more like a bullpen guy. I just don't understand how a team with very little starting pitching depth moves their best and closest starting pitching prospects to the bullpen.

    His defense was pretty horrendous when he first started starting, it seems to have gotten better though. That was an amazing catch.

    I'm excited for Calhoun, he could become a perfect #2 hitter for us. He isn't great at anything, but he is pretty much good at everything. It will be hard for the Angels to find a spot to play him at though. Shuck has been decent this year, but Calhoun should have been up when Bourjos went down. Ultimately we might see him traded. Although it could be Bourjos or Trumbo

    CF Trout
    RF Calhoun
    1B Pujols
    LF Hamilton
    DH Trumbo
    2B Kendrick
    C Conger/Iannetta
    3B Jimenez/FA
    SS Aybar

    or

    LF Trout
    DH Calhoun (or 1B/RF)
    1B Pujols
    RF Hamilton
    2B Kendrick
    C Conger/Iannetta
    CF Bourjos
    3B Jimenez/FA
    SS Aybar

    We could keep all three and just find a spot for him

    Trout 160 games
    Bourjos 145 games
    Hamilton 140 games
    Pujols 140 games
    Trumbo 140 games

    That would get Calhoun 85 starts

    Agree so far Calhoun's been a solid in his time up at the plate.

    @Alden_Gonzalez: D-Train coming to Anaheim? #Angels have agreed to terms on a Minor League deal with Dontrelle Willis, who will report to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    @Alden_Gonzalez: In 14 starts of independent ball, Willis (31) had a 2.57 ERA. 1.38 WHIP, 5.3 K/9, 4.4 BB/9. Hasn't pitched in Majors since '11. #Angels

    Good thing we didn't trade Aybar/Kendrick for pitching

    Sosh said Bourjos "not quite where he needs to be" hitting-wise 2 go on rehab assignment. "Possible" he does this wk but doesn't seem likely
    Jason Vargas will pitch in a rehab game for Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday. 5 innings, 75 to 80 pitches. #Angels
    Should only need 1 rehab game, then 1 game with us, and then traded
