News: Wilson improved to 6-6 as he allowed one run on five hits and three walks over six innings Monday against the Yankees.
Impact: Wilson has now allowed one run or fewer in three of his past four starts. The quality start was Wilson's ninth in 16 outings this year. Over 25 percent of Wilson's earned runs came in a pair of outings to begin the month; starts like Monday's have been closer to the norm for Wilson, who lowered his ERA to 3.78 in the process.
News: Morin (oblique) is expected to be activated Tuesday or Wednesday, Mike DiGiovanna of the LA Times reports.
Impact: Morin has finished up his rehab assignment in the Arizona Summer League, and he's now back with the team in Los Angeles. The Angels are yet to officially activate him, however, and it's unclear whether that move will come Tuesday or Wednesday. Regardless, the team will have to make another transaction to clear a spot on the 25-man roster.
News: Aybar (hamstring) will return to the starting lineup Monday against the Yankees, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Aybar missed the last two starts as a result of the injury, but was able to pinch-hit in Sunday's contest against the Mariners. He has tallied just a .565 OPS with three extra-base hits in 89 at-bats in June.
News: Cowgill (wrist) took batting practice Monday and could be close to heading out on a rehab assignment, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Cowgill continues to work back slowly from a sprained right wrist, and he's now been out for more than a month. The team still has not issued a timetable, but considering he's close to a rehab stint, a mid-July return to the Angels seems reasonable.
News: Cron will start at first base and bat seventh Monday night, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Cron has been mashing the ball in Triple-A, hitting for a .323/.347/.667 line with 18 of his 30 hits going for extra bases. He's been much better against lefties than righties this season in the majors, hitting for .279 against them versus just .154 against right-handers. With southpaw CC Sabathia on the mound for the Yankees, Cron gets the nod over Efren Navarro at first base with Albert Pujols filling the DH role.
News: Cron will be recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake prior to Monday's game against the Yankees, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Impact: Cron has bounced between Triple-A and the majors this season, hitting for a 1.014 OPS in 93 at-bats for Triple-A Salt Lake while hitting for a .505 OPS in 108 at-bats for the Angels. With left-handed CC Sabathia on the mound for the Yankees on Monday, Cron could crack the starting lineup immediately.
