A Big Bat Arrives

The Angels had pitching reinforcement Caleb Clay up for one day, did not use him, ad have sent him back to AAA in favor of a bat. Brennan Boesch has been sizzling at AAA Salt Lake and is in the lineup tonight. The Angels are hoping for some sort of spark in this extended month of subpar OPS.

Monday’s Lineup is…

  1. Kole Calhoun RF
  2. Mike Trout CF
  3. Albert Pujols 1B
  4. Josh Hamilton LF
  5. Erick Aybar SS
  6. Howie Kendrick 2B
  7. Brennan Boesch DH
  8. David Freese 3B
  9. Chris Iannetta C

Unlike his first tour of duty in Anaheim this season, Boesch will not be wearing the 00 uniform. He will instead be fitted with Jose Molina’s old jersey #28

Boesch was batting a robust .326 with a .625 Slugging Percentage – his OPS in AAA this season is 1.006 over 363 Plate Appearances so he means when he says it. This is definitely the team going with the hot hand and an acknowledgement that the sputtering offense shall be addressed.

C.J. Wilson takes the mound for the Halos tonight so you know they will need some bats-a-clickin’…
