Chance for Sunday debut?
Rendon (oblique) has an outside chance of making his season debut Sunday or Monday against the Athletics, although he's most likely to play his first game of the season Tuesday versus the Mariners, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. "I talked to him yesterday before the game, I saw him doing some exercises right outside of my office," manager Joe Maddon said. "Very encouraged. He's feeling better. After today's workout we'll have a better indicator for where he's at specifically, but he's definitely making progress."
Clarity on readiness forthcoming
Teheran (undisclosed), who arrived in summer camp Friday, should have further clarity on his path to getting stretched out over the next few days, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. "I think probably by tomorrow or the next day, we should have a pretty good idea where he's at and be able to have a solid plan built," Maddon said. "He's very eager, looks great, ready to go. But he's got to get together with Mickey and map something out and once we have something mapped out, I'll let you guys know."
Opening Day start on tap?
Opening Day status in doubt
Manager Joe Maddon is less certain than Rendon (oblique) about the third baseman's status for the Angels' Opening Day matchup against the Athletics on Friday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. "I really don't have any idea," Maddon said. "From his mouth, he says he's actually pretty good, but you don't know with something like this. When I hear these things, day to day, you just be patient. And I don't even want to create conjecture because I really don't know. I want to believe he's gonna be ready but if not, we're gonna have to have a 'Plan B' ready."
