by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

(4/5/2014) Angels second baseman Erick Aybar was quite involved in an offensive barrage Friday in Houston. He scored twice, drove in one run and walked. He hit a sacrifice fly in the third and smacked an RBI single in the seventh.

Erick Aybar finally working walks this spring


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Erick Aybar has become The Walking Man this spring. It's a new look.

The Angels shortstop has never been issued more than 35 walks in any season despite earning more than 500 at-bats every year since 2009. But he has eight in 43 plate appearances in 2014 exhibition play. What gives?

"I don't think Erick is going to walk 100 times, but the fact is he's focusing on putting together better at-bats, focusing on getting into better counts," Angels general manager Jerry DiPoto told the Orange County Register. "It's a lot easier to hit in this league when you are getting into positive counts."

More walks could lead to more runs. Aybar has not scored more than 71 runs in any of the last five seasons.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2013) Angels shortstop Erick Aybar doubled three times in a losing effort Saturday at Texas. Aybar led off and had three doubles and three runs scored in the game. 

He went 3 for 5 and now has 33 doubles on the season for the Angels. Aybar, who made an error in the field, is batting .271 for the year with one game remaining. 

The 29-year-old has hit in eight of his last 10 games and is on a five-game hitting streak at the moment. He has just one RBI over that stretch.
