UPDATES & NEWS
Angels acquired 2B Gordon Beckham from the White Sox for a player to be named later or cash.
On a day where their pitching depth took a major hit, the Angels shored up their middle infield depth with the addition of Beckham. The former hot-prospect, busted out with the Pale Hose in just his second year with them and he hasn't been able to recover since. Perhaps a change of scenery will help, but he'll be serving as the primary back-up infielder. How many at-bats he sees is not yet known.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
