Welcome to Opening Day, Hank.

Eric Kay in the Angels Communication Department just sent me the list of the Opening Day 25-Man roster for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The big surprise is King Conger in Anaheim.

Reggie Willits (OF)
Kendrys Morales (INF)
Freddy Sandoval (INF)

  • Pineiro has a tight right shoulder
  • Cassevah has an inflamed pitching shoulder
  • Scott Downs fractured his left big toe (or should that be his bog left toe, or would that imply that he only has one toe on his left side and it is oversized?)
  • Kendry(s) is listed as still recovering from ankle surgery and having a "left big toe soreness" (Cue Tony Bennett: "I Left My ...Toe ... in some big soreness").
  • Willits has a calf strain and Sandoval an oblique strain.

Andrew Romine, Frankie 2-Rod, Trevor Bell and Matt Palmer got optioned to AAA Salt Lake.
