John Lackey had his second rehab start with Class A Rancho Cucamongo. He pitched three innings, giving up one run and one hit, before being forced to finish his workout in the bullpen due to a power outage. Lackey is still on pace to return at the end of May.
On Tuesday, Mike Scioscia announced that Lackey’s fifth starter replacement, Dustin Moseley, will remain in the bullpen as a reliever. Moseley posted a 1-2 record with a 6.75 ERA in his five starts. His move to the bullpen will prompt a Minor League callup for a starter for Thursday’s game against the A’s. Triple-A right handers Nick Green or Nick Adenhart will likely get the nod.
The Angels look for their second win against the A’s in tonight’s 7:05 game.
Ervin Santana looks to join the 5-0 club along with Joe Saunders, who acheived that last night. Santana is 7-1 lifetime against the A’s with a 1.38 ERA. The A’s will throw lefty Dana Eveland, who is 2-1 on the season.
Santana’s and Saunder’s perfect records are the first in franchise history for two or more pitchers going 4-0 for the month of April. A Santana win would bring him to 5-0 to tie Saunders and Chien-Ming Wang for the most AL victories. An Angels win would also give them sole possession of first place, they are tied with the A’s as of now.
