The Angels called up David Freese from the Disabled list and sent Luis Jimenez back to AAA to make room for him. Freese is in the lineup tonight in Anaheim, a lineup that also features slumping Mike Trout at Designated Hitter.
- Erick Aybar leads off playing Shortstop
- Mike Trout is the Designated Hitter
- Albert Pujols is at 1B
- Raul Ibañez is in LF
- Howie Kendrick at 2B is no longer in the cleanup spot
- David Freese is at 3B
- Hank Conger is the Catcher
- Collin Cowgill is in CF
- Effren Navarro is in RF
Tyler Skaggs is doing the pitching, wearing Jersey #45 in the team's 45th game of the 2014 season.
With Kole Calhoun getting ready to return, the assumption would be he will be taking Navarro's place on the 25-man roster and Josh Hamilton appears to be right behind him in returning. Look for C.J. Cron to finish his cup of coffee this weekend and the Hambone to be on parade on the road beginning next week if all works out well.
