Angels' Matt Joyce gets night off vs. LHP Jason Vargas
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/10/15) Angels outfielder Matt Joyce was given the night off against Kansas City left-hander Jason Vargas. It's the second time this season he's been given a game off against a southpaw. Joyce has just one hit in his first eight at-bats this season.
"He's going to do it [hit against lefties]," hitting coach Baylor said of Joyce, per the Orange County Register. "He's going to be an important factor for us, no doubt. He's got too good of a swing."
Collin Cowgill took his spot in left field and is batting eighth. Meanwhile, David Freese will bat in the cleanup spot, with C.J. Cron fifth.
Angels go with Collin Cowgill over Matt Joyce in left field Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) The Angels will start Collin Cowgill in left field Tuesday against the Mariners over Matt Joyce, per the team's starting lineup. Cowgill, who is considered a platoon with Joyce in left, will make his season debut Tuesday and bat eighth.
Cowgill, who will face left-hander James Paxton Tuesday, is a career .277 hitter against lefties with seven home runs and 27 RBI.
Manager Mike Scioscia likes what he's seen from Matt Joyce, but wants to play the matchups a bit, reports MLB.com.
"Matt will get his chance to play versus some lefties at times, and at times, we're going to match up," Scioscia said. "The one thing with Matt -- when he's swinging the bat well, you don't just want to automatically take him out because of a left-hander."
Angels' Collin Cowgill not taking spot for granted
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) Angels outfielder Collin Cowgill is not taking his spot for granted, according to MLB.com.
"I understand how the game works," Cowgill said. "I understand a lot, maybe more so than a lot of people, because I've found myself in a lot of situations. I don't take anything for granted. So I'm going to keep trying to work and earn it."
Cowgill has spent time with four different teams in his young career, and understands how often you can lose your role. With Josh Hamilton expected to miss time early in the season, it appears Cowgill's spot on the roster is safe, even though he remains skeptical.
"If [Angels manager Mike] Scioscia's going to play me, it's because I deserve it," Cowgill said. "He's going to play me because he thinks I give him a chance to win, and that's the only way I want it to be."
The 28-year-old hit .250/.330/.354 over 260 at-bats last season.
