Angels lefties Cesar Ramos, Jose Alvarez excelling early
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Angels manager Mike Scioscia has enjoyed strong performances from left-handed relievers Cesar Ramos and Jose Alvarez early in the season, with the pair combining to limit lefties to one hit in seven at-bats while striking out four, MLB.com reports.
"If you have versatility and you have balance, it does create depth," Scioscia said Monday. "We can use guys in different situations, different roles, and hopefully keep them fresh and get the results we need."
Scioscia brought Ramos into a two-run game win one out and one on in the seventh inning Monday, as three left-handed hitters were due to bat. Ramos retired the first two men he faced to turn the game over to setup man Joe Smith in the team's eventual 6-3 win.
Angels pitcher Jose Alvarez carving out niche as lefty specialist
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Angels pitcher Jose Alvarez is becoming a go-to option out of the bullpen against lefties early in the season, according to the Orange County Register.
Alvarez, who just pitched one perfect inning so far in 2015, is getting high praise from pitching coach Mike Butcher.
"He pitched great in spring," Butcher said. "He's got some natural deception from the left side. I think his command is better. We see him as a guy who can help us out in the bullpen."
Butcher wants to continue to see Alvarez against left-handed hitters.
"Right now the fit for us is coming out of the bullpen and getting a lefty out," Butcher said. "He's a multi-inning guy as well. I'm not going to say he's just going to be a left-on-left guy or a bullpen guy the rest of his career, but he fits really well in our bullpen now."
Jose Alvarez ready to be Angels' long reliever
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) Angels pitcher Jose Alvarez transitioned from starting to the bullpen, this spring, and it looks like he's landed a job as the team's long man out of the bullpen.
"It's a little different, but have to do it," Alvarez said per MLB.com. "We're looking for a spot no matter what position, starter or reliever."
Alvarez has a 2.16 ERA this spring.
"We're definitely impressed with his stuff," manager Mike Scioscia said. "His velocity is better, his slider is tighter. He looks much better than he did last year. ... He has enough stuff to start. But his stuff definitely plays in a bullpen, both as a lefty specialist, but also a guy who can give you some length because he has really good stuff against right-handers also."

|(4/18/14) The Angels have recalled right-hander Josh Wall and sent lefty Jose Alvarez to Triple-A Salt Lake City.
Wall pitched briefly for Anaheim last season and compiled an 18.00 ERA while giving up 17 hits in just seven innings.
