Update 11:37 a.m. 

Quick media session with manager Lloyd McClendon today. Not much you can really ask him. It’s just go out and play.

“I’m worried about today,” he said. “That’s it. All hands on deck and we’ll see what happens. Tomorrow, we’ll worry about tomorrow.”

Will he have his other starting pitchers in the bullpen on standby?.

“I got the best bullpen in baseball,” McClendon said. “What the hell do I need starters for.”

On the resiliency of his team?

“We’ve lost eight in a row, five in a row and another five in a row and we’ve gotten back up off the mat every time,” he said. “I don’t want anymore five in rows.”

McClendon said  that Endy Chavez’s two bunts were on his own.

“Those bunts were on his own,” McClendon said. “He asked me what I wanted him to do. I said, ‘whatever you feel comfortable doing,’ because you trust him. You trust his baseball instincts and he’s going to do what’s right.”

From earlier

Manager Lloyd McClendon starting Michael Saunders in right field. Yes, Kendrys Morales is at cleanup. No, I have no other reasoning behind it other than that’s what McClendon has wanted and continued to do since Morales was acquired.

It’s important to note that this is bullpen start for the Angels. So Cory Rasmus will probably go 3-4 innings at most. Seattle beat the Angels in their last bullpen start with Rasmus starting.

Down in Texas, the Rangers and A’s will start around noon. Nick Martinez is starting for the Rangers, per reports.
