The Angels (1-3) travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Rays (0-3) to kickoff a two game series. The Halos will turn to staff ace Jered Weaver to right the ship after three straight frustrating losses in Kansas City. Tonight’s first pitch is at 3:40 PST . Lets take a looks at the pitching match ups and predict the players to watch.

Pitching Matchups

  •  Rays To Watch –  With Evan Longoria on the DL Ben Zobrist has stepped in as the Rays #3 hitter and has been one of the few bright spots across the teams first 3 games hitting .300 with 1 HR and a 1.162 OPS. Sean Rodriguez who the Rays plucked from the Halos in what has now shown to be a debacle of a trade for Scott Kazmir , could look to exact some revenge against his former club as he will be the likely starter at third base in place of the injured Longoria.
  • Holy Halo – Bobby Abreu  comes into this short series scorching hot. Coming off a 5 hit game Sunday Abreu strolls  into the Trop having seemingly found his approach. His career numbers in Tampa should make Abreu even more comfy. Bobby has posted a career .314/.373/.551 slash line to go along with 6 HR, and 29 RBI’s in 30 games at the Catwalk confines.
