Maybin (knee) is optimistic that he'll be back in the lineup Friday against the Marlins, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports. "We'll evaluate him tomorrow, but I think it's calmed down. Hopefully he'll be ready to go," said manager Mike Scioscia on Thursday. Maybin was pulled from Thursday's series finale in Tampa Bay with a sore knee. He told reporters after the game that his knee was sore from the wear and tear on it during the course of the series while playing on Tampa's new turf. Maybin has turned over a new leaf since being moved to the leadoff spot, batting .438 with a whopping 1.300 OPS over his last eight games. ( via CBSSports.com) #RedNation #AngelsBaseball #Halos

Pounders was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. With Alex Meyer (back) heading to the disabled list, an opening on the major-league roster was created for Pounders to head up to the big leagues. The 26-year-old reliever struggled in his initial appearance with the Halos but settled down to post three straight scoreless outings prior to his demotion earlier in the month. He also struck out five batters across his four appearances earlier in the year, so he will likely get his fair share of innings in a middle-relief role while he's in the majors.

Meyer will be placed on the 10-day disabled list with back spasms, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. The  #Angels have yet to formally announce the move, but Meyer will hit the DL after experiencing tightness following Tuesday's bullpen session. General manager Billy Eppler said he's unsure how much time Meyer will miss. Brooks Pounders is on his way to join the major-league club, but it may be a short stay, as the team will need to clear a spot for Daniel Wright (Meyer's replacement in the rotation) prior to Thursday's game.

Shoemaker (4-2) tossed 6.1 scoreless innings in Monday's win over the Rays, allowing three hits with three walks and five strikeouts. Shoemaker delivered one of his best outings of the season in this one, pitching to contact for much of the night and allowing just two men past first base. He departed with the bases loaded and one out in the seventh, but Yusmerio Petit came on and neutralized the threat. Shoemaker endured a rough stretch at the start of the season, but he has now delivered three consecutive quality starts, allowing just three runs in 18.2 innings during that stretch to lower his ERA to a season-best 3.97. He will look to continue his strong run of form Sunday against the Marlins on the road. ( via CBSSports.com) #RedNation #AngelsBaseball #Halos

Trout went 1-for-3 with his 15th home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Rays. Tuesday's homer placed the  #Angels ' slugger in a tie with Aaron Judge for the league lead in long balls with 15 on the year. In addition to the tremendous power, Trout has been filling the stat sheet for his fantasy owners with 33 runs, 35 RBI and nine steals while batting .342 through 42 games. It can be tough to digest the thought of the consensus top pick in fantasy this year exceeding his lofty expectations, but the 25-year-old appears to be doing just that with no signs of slowing down.

Valbuena went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Rays. Despite batting just .190 on the year, the Angels felt comfortable handing over the keys to the starting first base job to the veteran infielder, sending C.J. Cron to the minors in the process. Valbuena will head to bench regularly against lefties, but he can provide some cheap pop against righties going forward. ( via CBSSports.com) #RedNation #AngelsBaseball #Halos

Pennington started at third and batted ninth against the Rays on Tuesday, going 1-for-3 with a walk in a 4-0 victory. With the surprising news of C.J. Cron's demotion to the minors Monday, playing time opened up on the infield for Pennington. The veteran could earn a few extra starts at the hot corner until Yunel Escobar (hamstring) returns from the disabled list. The 32-year-old currently owns a slugging percentage that is equal to his batting average (.271), so a temporary boost in playing time is unlikely to make waves in fantasy circles.

Cron was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday. The day after he bashed a grand slam, the Angels opted to send the 27-year-old back to the minors. Cron seemed to be finding his stroke at the plate again, hitting safely in his past four games to raise his batting average 16 points, but it seems that the #Angels wanted him to work out his struggles with consistent at-bats in the minors. It's unclear how long they plan for him to stay with Salt Lake, but he'll likely need to show that he can hit for power once again if he wants to sniff the majors again. Infielder Nolan Fontana was recalled to take his spot on the roster. Fontana was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday. He'll replace C.J. Cron on the active roster, giving the Angels some more versatility around the infield. Fontana has carried a .374 on-base percentage over 166 plate appearances with Salt Lake this season, but it's uncertain that he'll receive an opportunity to put his offensive skills on display during his stint with the Angels. He may just be asked to play a depth role at multiple infield spots. ( via CBSSports.com) #RedNation #AngelsBaseball #Halos

Chavez picked up his fourth win of the season Sunday despite allowing five runs over 5.2 innings. He struck out four in a 12-5 win over the Mets. Chavez worked around a pair of solo home runs through five frames and appeared to be on his way to his third quality start in four outings. Things changed in the sixth when he served up a three-run shot to Jay Bruce and failed to escape the inning. The veteran's day was salvaged by a victory, but his ERA rose to 4.61 on the season. Chavez has exhibited his usual control this season (2.8 K/BB), but his lack of command within the strike zone has made him too hittable (1.8 HR/9 and 35.6 percent hard contact rate), limiting his usefulness as a consistent fantasy option.

Cron went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Sunday's 12-5 win over the Mets. The 27-year-old got off the schneid in grand fashion, recording his first home run in his 86th plate appearance of the season. Injuries and a slow start to the season (.232/.281/.305) have diminished his fantasy value, but he has shown an ability to hit for power in the past (.442 career slugging percentage), so there is reason to believe he can turn things around. Cron should get every opportunity to do so over the next couple of weeks while Yunel Escobar (hamstring) recovers on the disabled list. ( via CBSSports.com) #RedNation #AngelsBaseball #Halos

Simmons filled up the stat sheet Sunday, going 2-for-6 with a double, a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in a 12-5 win over the Mets. With a couple of the  #Angels ' regulars sidelined with injuries, Simmons was called upon to set the table for Mike Trout out of the two-hole Sunday. He did just that and more, getting on base three times and driving the ball with authority. Known mainly for his defense, the veteran shortstop has been getting it done at the plate recently, collecting 10 hits over his last 26 at-bats. Simmons will hold value as a middle infielder until he cools off. ( via CBSSports.com) #RedNation #AngelsBaseball #Halos

Your thoughts #Halos Major League Baseball announced Thursday it has reached an agreement with Facebook that will allow the social media platform to broadcast one game every Friday without blackouts, according to the Wall Street Journal's Jared Diamond. The partnership will reportedly begin on Friday, May 19, when Facebook broadcasts a clash between the Colorado Rockies and Cincinnati Reds. “This is very important for us to experiment [with Facebook]," MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said, according to Forbes' Maury Brown.
