This might be a rainout.

Return of the Peabo!
Return of the Peabo!
Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

As reported here on Halos Heaven and everywhere else, the Angels have recalled Peter Bourjos from the Disabled List. To make room for him on the 25-Man Active roster the team has Designated Chris Nelson for Assignment. The DFA is a courtesy as another major league team could claim him and he could be uniform tomorrow night! If he clears waivers he will be off the Angels 40-Man roster and in AAA Salt Lake soon.

Tonight's game in Baltimore will be played under rainy conditions. It may not even get played. The lineup for this "Big Maybe" is as follows:

  1. Mike Trout LF
  2. Josh Hamilton RF
  3. Albert Pujols DH
  4. Mark Trumbo 1B
  5. Howie Kendrick 2B
  6. Alberto Callaspo 3B
  7. Erick Aybar SS
  8. Chris Iannetta C
  9. Peter Bourjos CF

Jered Weaver is on the mound and so the team desperately needs to avoid any situation of start-stop that rain delays can cause as messing with the Angels ace as he returns from injury is messing with just about the only thing the team has going for them at present.
