Josh Hamilton is not in the Angels starting lineup on Monday.
Hamilton was out of the lineup Sunday as well, so this is more than just a routine day off. The team has yet to announce what may be ailing the oft-injured slugger, so for now we'll say it's an undisclosed thing and he is day-to-day. Lefty Brennan Boesch is out in left field for Monday.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Miguel Castro will open the season in the majors.
Castro flew under the radar in the minors last season, but is making the rare jump from A-Ball to the majors. This is thanks to his (likely) temporary move to the bullpen for the Spring, which enabled his stuff to tick up a bit in shorter outings. He's likely next in line to receive saves should Brett Cecil fail, and the 20-year old is worth keeping an eye on. Analysis: Ben Diamond
