Angels prospect Josh Rutledge to get work at shortstop in Triple-A
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Angels prospect Josh Rutledge was considered the favorite to win the role at second base heading into spring training. But now that he will begin the year in Triple-A, Los Angeles wants to see his versatility, reports the Orange County Register.
Rutledge will primarily play shortstop during his minor league assignment, but also get time at second and third base.
"He was supposed to be the utility infielder but somehow the runaway train made him our everyday second baseman," general manager Jerry Dipoto said. "That's not what he was necessarily supposed to be, and he did not have a very good spring. He needs to go back and get himself where he needs to be, start swinging the bat like he has in his lifetime in the minors."
Giavotella wins Angels' second base job over Green, Rutledge
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/4/15) Johnny Giavotella was awarded the starting second base job after the Angels optioned infielders Grant Green and Josh Rutledge down to Triple-A Salt Lake following Friday's exhibition game against the Dodgers, according to the Orange County Register.
Giavotella hit .315 (17 for 54) with one home run and seven RBI in 25 spring training games. He has slashed .238/.277/.334 over 437 big-league at-bats.

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) Angels second baseman Josh Rutledge is back in the starting lineup Sunday, batting ninth in his team's game against the Giants.
Rutledge has been dealing with tightness in his hamstring and hasn't played since Tuesday. He's 7 for 31 with one double and three walks this spring in his battle to serve as the team's primary second baseman.
Angels INF Josh Rutledge sidelined due to hamstring tightness
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Angels infielder Josh Rutledge is dealing with some tightness in his hamstring, but he is expected to be back in the spring lineup soon, per MLB.com. Rutledge is batting .226 (7 for 31) through 12 spring games.
Angels' Josh Rutledge viewed as the favorite at second
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/6/15) Angels infielder Josh Rutledge is considered the favorite for the second base job, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Rutledge is competing with a number of players, including Grant Green and Johnny Giavotella, this spring. Rutledge has the most experience of the group, which could give him the edge.
The 25-year-old hit .269/.323/.405 over 309 at-bats last season.
|2014 Summary: Remember in 2012 when Josh Rutledge tore up Double-A and then proceeded to do even greater damage at the major league level before turning ice cold in September? For the second year in a row, Rutledge didn't do much to dispel the skeptics who never bought into his initial big league success. Though he hit 16 doubles and seven triples in 309 at-bats, mostly as Troy Tulowitzki's replacement during his second-half DL stint, Rutledge had little home run power, totaling just four. However, the impact of a 27 percent strikeout per at-bat ratio was blunted by the 17 infield hits Rutledge collected. His three-year run with the Rockies ended in December when he was dealt to the Angels for reliever Jairo Diaz.|
Playing time status: Rutledge is the frontrunner to inherit the starting second base job vacated by Howie Kendrick when he was traded to the Dodgers.
2015 Outlook: Rutledge's 2012 power outburst is looking more and more fluky, and changing his home address from Coors Field to Angel Stadium makes it even less likely for him to recover this thump. Still, Rutledge can use his speed to turn doubles into triples, steal bases and get infield hits. Those skills give Rutledge some value in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats.
