The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have announced their opening day roster, which contains a few surprises. The club is carrying three catchers out of the gate, including Hank Conger. In addition, the club will open the season with a whopping six players on the disabled list, including slugger Kendrys Morales. Here is the full 25-man roster:
Pineiro has a tight shoulder, but is expected to be recalled in time to start the April 8 home opener. Willits has a calf strain, which opened the door for Pettit as the fifth outfielder. The Angels open their season on Thursday afternoon in Kansas City, with a 1:10 p.m. PDT start against the Royals.
