Halo Headlines – 6/6/11

Daily Links for the LA Angels including Haren is “good to go,” Wells hitless in his rehab start, Kazmir shows signs of life and much more…

The Story: Dan Haren is “good to go” for his start on Tuesday.

The Monkey Says: This is certainly good news, but I’m not going to exhale entirely until we see how Haren actually performs.


The Story: Vernon Wells was hitless in his first rehab start.

The Monkey Says: Wells and the word “hitless” is something I think we are all used to by now.


The Story: Scott Kazmir showed signs of life in his third rehab start.

The Monkey Says: His velocity was supposedly up, which is huge news for him, but his command was still pretty bad as he walked five batters, threw two wild pitches and allowed two extra-base hits (on just three hits total) in six innings of work.  I still think he is done, but at least this would suggest he may have a fighting chance of making it back to the majors in some way, shape or form.


The Story: Reggie Willits was sent down to the minors to make room for Howie Kendrick coming off the DL.

The Monkey Says: Old news, but it needed to be mentioned.  Hopefully this will be the last we see of Willits this year, nothing personal.


The Story: Mike Trout suffered a (hopefully) minor injury to his leg.

The Monkey Says: No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  OK, candlelight vigil at my place at midnight tonight.


The Story: Mike Scioscia sees no need for baseball in November.

The Monkey Says: Sosh is in favor of an expanded post-season, so if he wants no baseball in November, he is going to have to help the league figure out how to make it all work and keep everyone happy.
