3/15/2014 | Trout looking to pounce early at plate
Few guys have been in as many deep counts as Mike Trout these last two years. Only eight of them have had more plate appearances with a full count; only six have hit with two strikes more often. The approach is a credit to Trout's comfort with two strikes, but it's one that also leads to a lot of walks and strikeouts, limiting the star-studded outfielder's ability to drive in runs. This year, it'll be different.
3/15/2014 | Angels belt three homers, settle for tie in 10
Howie Kendrick, Matt Long and Mike Trout all went deep, but Yoslan Herrera allowed a tying double in the ninth to Drew Stubbs and the Angels settled for a 4-4 tie after 10 innings. Starter Jered Weaver allowed three runs in five-plus innings.
3/15/2014 | Shuck seeing results after relaxing approach
Angels outfielder J.B. Shuck started the spring with only four hits in his first 23 at-bats and has a good idea why. "I wanted to come in and prove that last year wasn't a fluke," he said. "I think I just put a little bit too much pressure on myself."
3/15/2014 | De La Rosa cleared to resume throwing

3/14/2014 | LeBlanc to hone breaking ball vs. other lefties

3/14/2014 | Spring numbers belie Pujols' improved health

3/13/2014 | 'Magician' McDonald never satisfied with defense

3/13/2014 | Cron, Lindsey among five prospects cut from camp

3/13/2014 | Burnett feeling good after bullpen session

There was a fascinating convergence of what might have been and what actually is Wednesday at Tempe Diablo Stadium. Fortunately for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, this meeting was won by what actually is. In fact, the result was a landslide.
3/12/2014 | Calhoun resisting temptation of aggression
In case there was ever any doubt, Kole Calhoun is the Angels' leadoff hitter. He's started in nine of the days the Angels have had a Spring Training game, and he's led off in all of them. And every single time he has, he's taken the very first pitch of the game. That's by design.
