Yu Darvish, scratched from his Tuesday start for the Rangers due to stiffness in his neck, is slated to start Sunday's game against the Angels, opposite Zack Greinke.
Angels first baseman Albert Pujols was honored on the field Wednesday with the Latino MVP Award, receiving a painting, a crystal and a proclamation by Anaheim mayor Tom Tait.
Manager Mike Scioscia has hit Alberto Callaspo in the No. 5 spot of the lineup in five of the last six games. Scioscia admits Callaspo, more of a slap hitter who draws a lot of walks, isn't a prototypical 5-hitter. But with Mark Trumbo's struggles moving him down to the No. 8 spot, the Angels skipper believes Callaspo fits in perfectly, saying: "Right now, with the options that we have, I think Alberto's going to work a tough at-bat and put the ball in play. He's proved throughout the course of his career he can hit with guys in scoring position."
With a crowd of 37,916, the Angels surpassed 3 million fans at Angel Stadium for the 10th straight season, a streak matched only by the Yankees in the American League. WIth one home game left, the Angels have drawn 3,024,303 fans.
