ANAHEIM — Kole Calhoun is on the disabled list thanks to a strained right oblique. Might the time off help the Angels outfielder break out of his season-long hitting slump?“Maybe,” Manager Mike Scioscia said Saturday. “That’s not the way you want to get your break, though.”The Angels placed Calhoun on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Friday, taking the outfielder off their lineup card in the midst of the worst hitting performance of his career. Through 173 plate appearances this year, Calhoun has a slash line of .145/.195/.179 — numbers far below his career average of .254/.321/.410.Sign up for Home Turf and get 3 exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.The 30-year-old is only three years removed from winning the Gold Glove Award, a season that also saw him post career highs with 83 RBIs and 26 home runs. He has 11 RBIs this year, going yard just once. Scioscia said Calhoun felt tightness in his right oblique when the Angels were getting to ready to leave Detroit earlier this week.“He was in the cage working a lot,” Scioscia said. “I think some things just stiffened up. It’s just something we need to address right now. … There’s no timetable yet, but hopefully it’s not too severe.”The Angels also optioned right-hander Jaime Barría (5-1, 2.48), who pitched six shutout innings against the Rangers on Friday night. He could be recalled again for a June 12 game in Seattle, when the team will again need a sixth starting pitcher.The club recalled Kaleb Cowart and Michael Hermosillo from Triple-A Salt Lake, starting the latter in right field against the Rangers on Saturday and batting him ninth.SURGERY GIVES SHOEMAKER CLARITY Shoemaker also had surgery last August to relieve radial nerve compression in his forearm. The right-hander pitched 5-2/3 innings on March 31 before lingering discomfort forced him onto the disabled list.ALSOScioscia tried to downplay any lingering tensions from Friday night, when a slide by the Rangers’ Rougned Odor resulted in a left leg gash for Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons. “It’s kind of an unfortunate incident,” Scioscia said. “But it’s past us, I think. There was a little bit of veer on the slide.” …Infielder Zack Cozart, who had an MRI on his left forearm Friday, is “progressing quickly” according to Scioscia, and could be nearing a return to the lineup. He has not played since May 29. …The Angels held a pre-game ceremony for Albert Pujols, emblazoning the number “3000” in the outfield to commemorate the slugger’s recent career hits milestone. Pujols was also presented with a picture of himself made of 9,858 screws, representing the number of at-bats he needed to reach 3,000 hits.

That procedure, performed on Tuesday, revealed a tear in the middle of his pronator teres tendon — an injury that none of his doctors had ever seen before.Dr. Steven Shin repaired the tendon, and Shoemaker appeared to be in good spirits on Saturday afternoon despite not knowing when he might finally make it back to the mound.“MRIs, bone scans, nerve studies — everything showed to be pretty clean,” Shoemaker said. “I’m really thankful we went in and did the exploratory procedure, because we would have never found this if we didn’t. That’s nice to have that answer.”Related Articles Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter
The Dodgers’ offense did its familiar disappearing act against a left-handed pitcher. Matt Moore didn’t give up a hit until the fourth inning when singles by Justin Turner, Adrian Gonzalez and Yasmani Grandal produced the Dodgers’ only run.“There should be no carryover,” Dodgers rookie shortstop Corey Seager said of the poor finish. “It’s just one of those weird times where you go from being so high after clinching. You can’t read anything into it. Just reset, regroup.”The game ended Vin Scully’s 67-year Hall of Fame broadcasting career. The iconic broadcaster traveled to San Francisco to call the final three games of the regular season. Sunday’s finale came 80 years to the day after a lopsided World Series defeat (18-4) of the New York Giants had made Scully a baseball — and Giants — fan.It’s a familiar story that Scully recounted once more as part of multiple tributes to the retiring legend during his final broadcast Sunday which was punctuated with several standing ovations, a visit from Willie Mays in the booth and a plaque placed there by the Giants honoring Scully.“It has been a party,” Scully said during the broadcast of his last game.“Don’t be sad that it’s over. Smile because it happened.” SAN FRANCISCO >> The Dodgers couldn’t knock the St. Louis Cardinals out of the postseason in 2013 or 2014. But they did Sunday.The San Francisco Giants scored five times in the first two innings against Kenta Maeda and collected 16 hits in all on their way to handing the Dodgers a 7-1 defeat Sunday afternoon, completing a three-game sweep on the final weekend of the regular season at AT&T Park.That means the Giants have qualified for the postseason as the National League’s second wild-card team — the same door they used on the way to winning the 2014 World Series — and will play the New York Mets on Wednesday. The Cardinals were eliminated with the Giants’ victory.The Dodgers, meanwhile, lost five of their six games after clinching their fourth consecutive NL West title a week ago. They will open the playoffs at Washington on Friday. “In talking to a couple coaches, that’s what we’re going to have to do — we’re going to have to hit the ‘reset’ button,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “It was a crazy week. Some highs and obviously some lows. To come in here and play a team that had their backs against the wall — they played like it. They won three games here, three games that they needed to win.“When you’re trying to play the middle — get guys rested, set your rotation, things like that — it’s really kind of against what we’ve done all year. No excuse. We’ll be ready go go on Friday.”Matters were settled early Sunday.Maeda earned a $1.5 million bonus by making his 32nd start of the season Sunday. It was not the best money the Dodgers ever spent. He gave up hits to seven of the first 12 Giants batters, walked another and didn’t make it out of the third inning.“My command was off. I didn’t have any sharpness to any of my pitches,” Maeda said through his interpreter. “It’s too bad that my season ended on a bad note. But I’m going to go through my usual adjustments and get ready for my next start.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
In February, the Province put out a request for an expression of interest to build at Grassy Point near Prince Rupert. The request attracted four suitable submissions. The agreement between Nexen and the Province gives Nexen the exclusive right to move forward with the planning necessary to build an LNG export infrastructure at Grassy Point. Discussions are reportedly ongoing with the remaining three proponents for an adjacent parcel of land. Nexen will now have to seek regulatory approval, an export permit from the National Energy Board and decide with its partners if the project will move forward. – Advertisement -There are now 10 LNG project proposals for British Columbia.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho refused to admit that the Premier League title race is over, saying that he is only focusing on his team’s season run-in.The Blues moved seven-points clear at the top of the table with a 2-1 victory over Stoke City, and while there are just seven matches remaining in the campaign, the Portuguese remained restrained when discussing the destination of the title.“[It brings us] one step closer,” he told talkSPORT. “Now, instead of six victories and a draw, it is five victories and a draw [needed to win the title].“The second, third and fourth-placed teams need to win every game and wait for us to lose a few points. We just need to think about ourselves.”When asked whether reigning champions Manchester City have slipped out of the running, Mourinho was even more defiant, saying: “No, of course not. On Monday, they can be second again. Nobody is out of the title race when mathematics says they are in it, so they are.”While Saturday’s victory brought another three points for Chelsea, it was arguably, Charlie Adam’s stunning long-range goal that stole the headlines and while Mourinho commented that it was ‘amazing’, he took another view of the effort.“Their goal is amazing, but I am not happy with it. Our defensive block was high and the moment we lost the ball we have to know to press the opponent.“We were not good enough in the transition when the ball was lost.“It was a goal that every top player in the world wants to score. He must be happy despite their defeat.”
