David Freese drove in the winning run for the Angles Sunday night with a solo-home run in the bottom of the eighth inning in what would be a 2-1 victory for them over the Tigers.

The home run was just the sixth of the season for Freese, but three of them have come in the month of July where he is hitting over .280 with 13 RBI. Freese's improved overall production this month should provide fantasy owners with a little more confidence in using him as a corner infield option.

Joe Smith improved to 4-0 with the win in relief over Tigers Sunday.

Nice "W" for Smith, but in terms of fantasy it was likely a day (or so) late and a dollar short seeing as he was one of the most dropped players after the Angels traded for Huston Street, who went on to convert the save on Sunday. His third in as many chances.

Hector Santiago allowed one run on just three hits with no walks and three strikeouts over 5.1 innings of the no-decision against the Tigers Sunday.

Hector Santiago has now put together back-to-back solid performances since returning to the starting rotation on July 22nd. Over those two starts he has allowed just one run and three walks while striking out five over 10.innings. Despite the improved results, Santiago will be headed back to the pen, at least for now.

Josh Hamilton has returned to the Angels starting lineup on Sunday.

Hamilton left Friday night's game with soreness in his left knee. In his previous six games he had seven hits in twenty at bats, giving him a .350 AVG for those games, albeit with no home runs. While his batting average isn't killing his owners, his lack of power is definitely disturbing. Even with lowered expectations coming into the season, Hamilton has been a serious disappointment.

Efrén Navarro smacked his first career major league home run Saturday against the Tigers, a two-run shot, to go with a walk in four plate appearances.

With Josh Hamilton now nursing an injury, Navarro is getting a nice opportunity to get some extra playing time and he's trying to make the most of it and prove his worth to the Angels. He's hitting .313 on the year through 67 at-bats but could stand to show a little more consistency at the plate from game to game. That may come with experience, but unless he puts it together quickly, he could be seeing moire bench time when Hamilton comes back and J.B. Shuck is still up with the big club.

Matt Shoemaker shut out the Tigers for seven innings and struck out five without allowing a walk and just three hits in the win Saturday.

This was a great rebound from his last outing and another reason to continue giving Shoemaker a look as a streamer. He threw just 78 pitches (51 strikes) and induced eight ground ball outs en route to his third win in his last four decisions and his eighth overall this season. He'll face the Rays his next time out.

C.J. Wilson (ankle) said he will make a minor league rehab start Monday with Double-A Arkansas. 

Word out of the Angels organization is that Wilson will make just one rehab start and, if all goes well, will rejoin the rotation immediately after. The team is waiting to set the rotation after the outing, but it looks like he'll take the mound for them next weekend with Hector Santiago likely heading to the bullpen.

Josh Hamilton is not in the Angels starting lineup on Saturday.

Hamilton tweaked his knee during Friday's game and left early, so it was a long shot for him to play Saturday. Efren Navarro, who filled in for Hamilton Friday, will start in left field.
