Grant Green in Tuesday Angels Lineup

...doo bee doo bee doo... ...like strangers in the niiiiiiiiight.... - Jonathan Moore

Green Up Stange Down Howie Out

Instead of placing Howie Kendrick on the fifteen-day Disabled List, the Angels have sent relief pitcher Daniel Stange down to AAA Salt Lake and called up infielder Grant Green.

Green is in the lineup tonight against the Rangers. He was acquired at the trade deadline from the Oakland Athletics for Alberto Callaspo.

The Angels are waiting to see if Howie's hyperextended left knee responds to treatment and if the veterena 2B can avoid the DL. Kendrick is having a great season at the plate and without Albert Pujols this lineup needs all the pop it can muster.

Green is an all-bat, iffy glove prospect that the Angels were considering as a replacement at 3B for 2014 as top prospect Kaleb Cowart needs more seasoning after a dismal AA campaign. He has immense shoes to fill and the cacklers in the stands and message boards of Anaheim may be in for a silencing of their "Trade Howie" campaign as the all-around excellence of Kendrick is suddenly missing from its spot.

Tonight's Angels lineup:

  1. at 1B, Kole Calhoun
  2. in CF, Mike Trout
  3. in RF, Josh Hamilton
  4. the DH, Mark Trumbo
  5. at SS, Erick Aybar
  6. in LF, Reggie Willits. I mean J.B. Shuck
  7. at 3B, Chris Nelson
  8. at 2B, making his Angels debut, Grant Green
  9. and Catching, Chris Iannetta

All of this in support of the suddenly good Garrett Richards.
