Michael Roth Starting Pitcher Tonight - Angels WED Lineup & Notes

#51 on the mound - USA TODAY Sports

Mike Trout tweeted his amazement at a little rain in OC.

Angels 2012 draftee Michael Roth will be making his first major league start on the mound tonight in a Johnny Asllstaff game as Tommy Hanson remains on the bereavement list. It can be assumed that Jerome Williams will appear in relief at some point and the hope is that Sean Burnett's recent forearm stiffness has healed sufficiently.

Relief ace Ryan Madson and Erick Aybar are both headed to extended Spring Training in Arizona tonight instead of joining the team on the road.. Aybar was eligible to come off the DL for a sore heel tomorrow in Seattle and was expected to rejoin the team but the luxury of a little depth in the infield has allowed the Angels to let him fully recuperate.

TONIGHT'S LINEUP:

Peter Bourjos CF - Mike Trout LF - Albert Pujols DH - Josh Hamilton RF - Mark Trumbo 1B
Howie Kendrick 2B - Brendan Harris SS - Chris Iannetta C - LUCHO 3B

No word on Alberto Callaspo and a return timetable from the DL for him.
