Wade LeBlanc earning consideration for postseason role


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Mike Scioscia has declared that veteran left-hander Wade LeBlanc has pitched his way into the postseason conversation for the Angels.

LeBlanc, who was placed into the rotation after stalwart Matt Shoemaker was sidelined with an oblique injury, is coming off successive strong outings. He hurled 5 1/3 shutout innings in a win over Oakland on Tuesday night and has not allowed a run in his last 15 1/3 innings pitched.

"Any time players perform well it's going to help you to be stronger and it will help you to make some decisions," Scioscia told the Orange County Register. "We haven't made any decisions yet, but that's two strong starts from Wade."

LeBlanc could land a postseason start if Shoemaker is not ready to return, though Cory Rasmus is another possibility.

Wade LeBlanc working on breaking pitch vs. lefties


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) Angels pitcher Wade LeBlanc has continually struggled against left-handed hitters in his career, but he's working on a breaking pitch this spring that will tail away from lefties, MLB.com reports.

"I have a fastball, a cutter and a changeup that I'm really comfortable with," LeBlanc said Friday. "But I needed to really work on the way I attack left-handed hitters, because that's always been a weakness of mine, and I feel like I've really figured something out along those lines this offseason. So far in camp, it's been pretty successful."

LeBlanc isn't going to break camp in the major-league rotation barring a rash of injuries to Angel starters, but he could very well pick up some starts throughout the season if he proves he can consistently handle left-handed hitting. He has yet to allow a run in 5 1/3 spring innings while striking out six and walking two.

"We do like our pitching staff and the depth we’ve been able to come up with," Dipoto said. "We know there is some uncertainty with a handful of young pitchers as they learn the league, but we believe in their ability.

"The year Hector had last year was pretty good. The second-half surge we saw from Richards was very encouraging. Skaggs is a 22-year-old  who has done what he can in the minor leagues, and we believe he’s ready for opportunity."
