What happened in 2014?Chris Iannetta started the season off is a pretty rigid platoon with Hank Conger, as expected. What wasn’t expected is that the platoon would...

Considering a Chris Iannetta extension

The Angels are in extension talking mode and one of their current targets is reportedly catcher Chris Iannetta. He’s been exactly what the Halos needed over his three-year tenure behind the plate.

Chris Iannetta's walk-off HR lifts Angels past A's in 12

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Chris Iannetta is no stranger to the moment but even he was a bit surprised by his results Wednesday night. The ball doesn't carry particularly well at Angel Stadium at night, but Iannetta got just enough of a Drew Pomeranz pitch to lift the Angels to a 5-4 win over Oakland in 12 innings. Even in the dugout, there were some reservations when Angels players heard...
