Daily Links for the LA Angels including Amarista gets called up, Morales' rehab stalls, Pineiro has a strong rehab start and much more...
The Monkey Says: Amarista is presumably getting the call to provide some infield insurance while Maicer Izturis nurses a sore hammy. This is still an odd move though. Amarista is a well-thought of prospect for the Halos and is red hot at Salt Lake, so it only makes since to call him up if they are going to use him, but the middle infield is the one area that the Angels don't need help. If this was just a depth move, they easily could have promoted Andrew Romine instead. Sosh even basically suggested that Amarista may not play at all.
The Story: Kendrys Morales' rehab program has stalled.
The Monkey Says: I don't think we are getting the whole story here. For a guy who was supposedly close to being ready to start the season, he can't seem to get past the running in the field step of his rehab program.
The Monkey Says: The article suggests he might make another rehab start, but I don't see how the Halos don't have him rejoin the rotation on Saturday, provided he still feels good when he wakes up tomorrow.,
