Perhaps it is just a ploy to make everyone forget abut his absentminded walk to the mound last night, mid-count, but Mike Scioscia will have a fresh arm to use in Anaheim as relief pitcher Ryan Brasier was promoted to the big club and Nick Maronde was sent down to AA Arkansas.
The Angels are in need of as much relief pitching as they can get. The bullpen is beleaguered, bashed, beaten and bitter.
Wednesday's Getaway Game Lineup:
Aybar at SS
Mike Trout in CF
Albert Pujols at 1B
CLEANUP: Mark Trumbo playing RF
Hambone McWillits is the DH
Howie Whatever at 2B
LUCHO at 3B
Hank Conger in day game after a night game at Catcher
J.B. Shuck in LF
C.J. Wilson "THE NIBBLER" on the mound.
Word is that Chris Iannetta is still pretty stiff from catching 19 innings on Monday night.
Huh, ya think so?
Alberto Callaspo is playing in San Bernadino this afternoon for the IE 66ers... We will see him soon in Anaheim.
