Gameday Thread - Angels vs. Tigers 4/18/2014


Recommended Posts

Angels third baseman David Freesewas scratched from the Angels' lineup on Friday, hours before the series opener against the Tigers from Comerica Park. Freese is experiencing tightness in his right quad, an injury Angels manager Mike Scioscia doesn't deem serious.

 

The 30-year-old enters the Angels' nine-game, three-city road trip with the third-lowest OPS among qualifiers (.414) and has struck out 15 times in 13 games.

 

"We're going to monitor it and see if he'll be available today, maybe, to do something, but right now we don't want to start him," Scioscia said. "It doesn't look serious right now."

 

Earlier today, the Angels optioned left-hander (and former Tiger) Jose Alvarez to Triple-A Salt Lake and brought up power right-hander Josh Wall. Scioscia said the Angels "want Jose Alvarez to go down there and get stretched out, because he is in our depth chart as a starter, and Josh is throwing the ball well. It's a nice power right-handed arm and we'll see where he fits in."

 

Here are the lineups ...

 

Angels (7-8)

Collin Cowgill, RF
Mike Trout, CF
Albert Pujols, 1B
Howie Kendrick, DH
Chris Iannetta, C
Erick Aybar, SS
J.B. Shuck, LF
John McDonald, 2B
Ian Stewart, 3B
