AL West Standings
- As noted earlier, Brett Anderson and Mark Ellis just hit the DL, and Vernon Wells has returned.
- Fangraphs suggests that Anderson's DL trip (and the possibility of surgery) could be related to his hefty slider percentage.
- The Seattle Mariners called up Mike Carp from Triple-A Tacoma, optioning Mike Wilson back to AAA in order to make room.
- On the second day of the draft, the Rangers loaded up on arms, drafting 17 pitchers from rounds 2-30.
- The Angels, meanwhile, selected 21 college players from rounds 3-30, compared to just six preps.
