Rajai Davis made his return on Saturday night after suffering a left hip flexor injury earlier in the week. He finished 0-for-3 with a strikeout. Davis had been out since being removed in the fourth inning of Wednesday's game. He was cleared to play Friday night but was given an extra day. "He has bounced back from the slight strain that he felt the other night," said Farrell. Angels: Pujols given night off
In a major slump, Albert Pujols was out of manager Mike Scioscia's lineup for the first time on Saturday. Pujols is batting .194, hasn't homered in 108 at-bats and hasn't had a multihit game since April 19. "Just a little breather," Scioscia said. "Sometimes you're grinding, and there's nobody that grinds harder than Albert. Just giving him a refresh day. Don't pick up a bat, just get ready to get back here tomorrow." Angels catcher Chris Iannetta was out of the Angels' starting lineup for the third straight game on Saturday, due to lingering soreness on his right hand/wrist area after being hit by a pitch on Wednesday. Worth noting
Farrell said that veteran infielder Omar Vizquel might receive his first start of the season at shortstop on Sunday. Vizquel has appeared in just five games this season. The Angels dealt Minor League relief pitcher Loek Van Mil to the Indians on Saturday in exchange for future considerations, which will likely end up being cash.
