Halo Headlines: Hanson OK after triceps scare, Pujols says he is too young to be a DH

The March 21st, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Tommy Hanson is OK after triceps scare, Pujols says he is too young to be a DH and much more…

The Story: Tommy Hanson left yesterday's game with triceps tightness but will not need an MRI and fully expects to make his next start.

The Monkey Says: But at least he scared the crap out of everyone for like 10 minutes. The person I feel the worst for is Kyle Lohse who probably thought he was about to finally find a job.


The Story: A look at how Jered Weaver's return to his old arm slot, while subtle could be a very good thing.

The Monkey Says: You know that post from the other day saying how slim a chance Weaver had at regaining his velocity? Well, suck on this!


The Story: Albert Pujols says he is too young to become a DH.

The Monkey Says: It is almost like he is begging us to make jokes about what his real age might be.


The Story: Chris Snyder has less than two weeks to earn a roster spot.

The Monkey Says: I'm willing to bet that he accepts a minor league assignment even if he doesn't make the roster since Conger is probably going to be one bad throwing day away from getting demoted again.


The Story: How Jesus Montero managed to throw out Mike Trout.

The Monkey Says: I still remember that moment. I think I even said before the game that Trout stealing his 50th bag was inevitable specifically because Montero was behind the dish. Welp.


The Story: A profile of Bill Lachemann, the Angels long-tenured minor league catching instructor.

The Monkey Says: And you thought Scioscia took the catcher defense stuff seriously.


The Story: Comparing very different pitchers based on peripherals.

The Monkey Says: In a season where many have predicted doom for Weaver, seeing him compared to Wei-Yin Chen does not make me feel better. Not than Chen is a bad pitcher, but he is no ace.


The Story: The big giant player banners have been raised outside Angel Stadium.

The Monkey Says: What? No Vernon Wells signage?


The Story: A look at Angels prospect A.J. Schugel.

The Monkey Says: The takeaway from this is really just a reminder of how little experience Schugel actually has on the mound.
