Three veterans released among Angels moves Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Angels also reassigned pitcher Wade LeBlanc to minor-league camp.


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.


Angels consider adding SP, but content with rotation alignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said Los Angeles remains interested in free agent pitcher Matt Garza, according to the Los Angeles Times.

However, Dipoto added he would also be satisfied going into spring training with a rotation of Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson, Garrett Richards, Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs, with Mark Mulder, Joe Blanton and Wade LeBlanc also in the mix competing for a spot in the rotation.

"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."

Wade LeBlanc could return to rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2013) Pitcher Wade LeBlanc is one option to take the open rotation spot for the Marlins Friday against the Mets, the Palm Beach Post reported Monday. The Marlins need a fifth starter, with Alex Sanabia hitting the disabled list with a groin injury.

Wade LeBlanc has no value


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2013) Marlins starting pitcher Wade LeBlanc was actually passable when given the opportunity last season for Miami, but that did not transfer over after he won a spot in the rotation in the spring. LeBlanc proved unable to take advantage of an improved defense and spacious home park, posting a 6.11 ERA in seven starts.

LeBlanc did not have much Fantasy value while he was in the rotation, but even in NL-only Fantasy formats, he should be cast aside now that he is moving to the bullpen. He has no Fantasy value in any formats while pitching in middle relief.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

All four runs came off two, two-run home runs by Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo.

Winless streak continues for Wade LeBlanc


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2013) Marlins pitcher Wade LeBlanc (0-3) allowed two runs and seven hits over four laborious innings of a 3-2 loss at Cincinnati in 13 innings Saturday. LeBlanc failed to last longer than four innings for the second outing in a row as his winless streak to open the season reached four games.

The left-hander walked three and struck out two -- the first time this year he has had more walks than strikeouts. Through 18 2/3 innings, he has a 2:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

"My day was terrible," LeBlanc said. "The silver lining is that I kept it close enough so we could tie it, but I needed to save the bullpen, and I did the opposite."

LeBlanc will face the Cubs at home Friday. He is 0-2 with a 8.38 ERA at Marlins Park this season.


Wade LeBlanc takes his third loss


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2013) Marlins starter Wade LeBlanc did not last long in his outing against the Nationals on Monday. He allowed seven runs on nine hits over 3 2/3 innings in a 10-3 loss.

The 28-year-old also struck out four and walked two while throwing 74 pitches, 47 for strikes.

LeBlanc (0-3) will make his next start on Saturday against the Reds.

Wade LeBlanc takes the loss in opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2013) Marlins starting pitcher Wade LeBlanc was pegged with his first loss of the season in his debut Thursday afternoon against the Nationals.

He also allowed a run-scoring single to Bryce Harper in the third inning. LeBlanc permitted three runs -- two earned -- on five hits in five innings of work in a 6-1 defeat. He also walked three and struck out five as his ERA rose to 3.60 on the year.

The left-hander is slated to face the Braves at home Tuesday. He is 0-2 with an 8.49 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP in 11 2/3 innings of work last season against Atlanta.

Left-handed hitters have book on Wade LeBlanc


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2013) Heading into his season debut Thursday at Washington, Marlins starting pitcher Wade LeBlanc understands he has to do a better job of not giving up home runs to left-handed hitters.

Six of the seven homers surrendered by the left-hander in 2012 were hit by lefties.

"There are always adjustments to be made," LeBlanc said, per the Sun-Sentinel. "I didn't have the success against lefties that I should have, whether that's home runs or hits or anything. On that front, there needs to be adjustments, but the six out of seven home runs, that's just one of those things that just happens. I still need to figure out how to get lefties out at a higher rate."
