Angels' Nick Tropeano takes first loss of year
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/25/15) Angels pitcher Nick Tropeano suffered his first loss of the season, Friday against Texas.
Tropeano started his second game of the season and first since April 23, after getting called up earlier in the day.
Tropeano allowed four runs on seven hits in six innings, striking out four. His record fell to 1-1.
Tropeano was optioned to the minor leagues following the game, per MLB.com. Conor Gillaspie, just acquired in a trade with the White Sox, will replace him on the roster.
Angels SP Nick Tropeano gets the start against Rangers
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/24/15) Angels right-handed pitcher Nick Tropeano is starting on Friday against the Rangers, according to MLB.com.
Tropeano was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake City. He has one major-league start under his belt this season, a six-inning outing against the Athletics back in April.
Report: Nick Tropeano good bet to start Friday for Angels
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) Right-hander Nick Tropeano appears ticketed for a promotion and start Friday, according to the Orange County Register.
Tropeano was scratched from two scheduled outings this week for Triple-A Salt Lake City and he threw what Mike Scioscia described as a "power bullpen" session Tuesday. Scioscia added that he is an option to pitch Friday.
The Angels need a sixth starter due to a rainout Sunday that forced two starters to pitch Monday.
Tropeano has made five minor league starts since returning from a bout with shoulder fatigue. He boasts a 2.65 ERA in his last three starts with Salt Lake City.
Angels recall Grant Green, option Nick Tropeano to minors
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) The Angels called up infielder Grant Green and demoted pitcher Nick Tropeano on Friday, the team announced.
“Grant Green is swinging the bat very well and could take some pressure off the guys in the middle and play left field,” manager Mike Scioscia said, per The Orange County Register.
Tropeano tossed six scoreless innings to pick up his first win of the season Thursday. Green failed to make the team out of spring training and has been playing in Triple-A.
Angels' Nick Tropeano tosses six scoreless innings in win vs. A's
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Angels pitcher Nick Tropeano earned a win Thursday, allowing five hits and one walk in six scoreless innings while striking out five in his team's 2-0 victory over the A's.
Tropeano (1-0) was brought up to make a spot start with Matt Shoemaker on bereavement leave, and he did his best to make a statement in his season debut. He posted a 4.09 ERA in two starts with Triple-A Salt Lake and will likely return to the minor-league team following Thursday's win.
|2014 summary: Nick Tropeano rebounded from a mediocre showing at Double-A Corpus Christi in 2013, showing signs of progress in a season at Triple-A Oklahoma City. The 24-year-old went 9-5 with a 3.03 ERA in 20 starts and three relief appearances at Oklahoma City, and he joined the Astros' rotation when major league rosters expanded in September. In four starts with Houston, Tropeano was 1-3 with a 4.57 ERA. The Astros traded Tropeano and minor league catcher Carlos Perez to the Angels in an offseason deal that netted catcher Hank Conger.|
Playing time status: Tropeano will be a contender for the fifth starter's spot with the Angels.
2015 outlook: Though his first stint in the majors didn't go especially well, Tropeano could be a useful pitcher for owners in deeper mixed leagues. He made strides in his ability to pitch with control and induce swings-and-misses last season, and pitching at Angel Stadium could blunt the impact of his flyball tendencies.
