Player Notes
MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez writes of Johnny Giavotella that the Angels' second base job is "pretty much his, for now."

Advice: Josh Rutledge entered camp as the presumed favorite for the gig, but Giavotella has outplayed him this spring by batting .343 to this point. The former Royals' prospect has always hit in the minors but has been dinged for his defense and was never given a real shot in Kansas City. He could have some AL-only league value.

Johnny Giavotella (thumb) will play in the Angels' Cactus League game Sunday.

Advice: That's good news on Giavotella, who had X-rays taken on his hand after injuring it during Friday's game. Giavotella will play the second half of Sunday's tilt. The infielder is battling with Josh Rutledge, who will also play Sunday, for the Angels' starting second base job.

Johnny Giavotella is having precautionary X-rays taken of his hand to rule out a potential fracture.

Advice: Giavotella injured his hand while sliding in Friday's Cactus League game and the team wants to make sure that no serious damage was done. The 27-year-old has impressed thus far in Angels camp, hitting .280/.357/.600 with a homer and three RBI in his first 25 at-bats.
