Scouting Report: Angels Update

July 02, 2009|By Dan Connolly

Once again the popular preseason pick to win the American League West, Los Angeles has jumped ahead in the division with one of the best hitting lineups in the majors. The Angels are led by infielder Chone Figgins, who is in the top 10 in batting average and multi-hit games, and outfielder Torii Hunter, who is having another All-Star year with the glove and bat. The Angels' pitching has been disappointing - the staff has the third-worst ERA in the American League. The Orioles will catch a break as Los Angeles' hottest pitcher, Jered Weaver, isn't scheduled to start in the series. The Orioles and Angels played twice earlier this season at Camden Yards, with the Angels winning both games.
