We'd all prepared ourselves for the worst when we first heard that Kendrys Morales might not be ready for Opening Day, but now that it has come to pass, it is time we figure out what his early season absence will mean to the rest of the team.

I think we can all agree the Angels did the right thing in putting Kendrys Morales on the disabled list to start the season, but that doesn't mean we want him to stay there for long. Let's all try and help Kendrys in his recovery by tweeting him some "Get Well Soon" messages. As such, this weeks Twitter Trend Tuesday topic is: #GetWellSoonKendrys.

Ready or not? That is the big question that faces Kendrys Morales this season. He's already failed his first test and landed on the DL to start the year, but can Morales rehab quickly and set himself up for a big comeback season?

Time is running out for Brandon Wood. His spring has been less than impressive and his roster spot is disappearing before his eyes, yet somewhere deep down he still has some of that potential that made him such a star prospect years ago. What are the Angels to do? Does he deserve more patience or is it time to finally just give up on Brandon Wood?
