Angels vs Yankees:  Line-Ups

Up until Tuesday, Angles' manager Mike Scioscia felt he didn't want to put too much pressure on rookie first baseman Mark Trumbo to bat him any higher than his typical #7 spot in the Angels' batting order.  However, Trumbo leads the team in home runs and RBI, and the Angels #7 spot in the order leads the American League in RBI out of that batting order slot.  The time must be right to move Trumbo up as he's hitting 5th in tonight's order.

Last night's 6-4 comeback win was their 27th of the season, third in the A.L.

The Angels optioned relief pitcher Horatio Ramirez to make room for tonight's starting pitcher Garrett Richards.  The club transfered Francisco Rodriguez to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster.  Richards is also the 14th Angel to make their debut over the last two seasons, while 11 players on the team's 25-man roster have less than 2 years of MLB experience.
