Giavotella wastes chances and Angels fall in 13innings to Houston

ANAHEIM – The Angels had their hottest hitter at the plate with a chance to win the game. Twice. Both times, though, Johnny Giavotella failed to so much as put the ball in play, striking out to scuttle two of the Angels best chances in what would...

Angels' Johnny Giavotella takes field with a purpose this spring

Tempe, Ariz. – To hear Alfredo Griffin tell it, Johnny Giavotella’s problems in the field last year weren’t so much physical as they were mental. “He needed to concentrate more,” said Griffin, the Angels infield instructor. “He’s a kid...

2016 Angels Preview: Johnny Giavotella

Johnny Giavotella won the Royal Rumble of uninspiring second base options last spring and became the Angels’ primary man at the keystone in 2015. The Magic Cajun Elf quickly ingratiated himself among Angel fans with his knack for picking up clutch base hits. Despite being one of the poorer defensive second basemen in baseball, Giavotella provided roughly league-average offense...

'Very frustrating' fourth nerve palsy sidelining Angels' Giavotella

The Los Angeles Angels have been without infielder Johnny Giavotella for a couple of weeks as he dealt with a 'personal medical situation'. Over the weekend, it was officially announced that Giavotella was dealing with fourth nerve palsy, a condition that causes him to see double whenever he looks down or to the left.

Is Johnny Giavotella’s start sustainable?

When the Los Angeles Angels and the Kansas City Royals consummated a trade last December, Johnny Giavotella was shipped west and the Angels fanbase had little idea what to expect out of such a diminutive second baseman. The team had traded away Howie Kendrick to the Los Angels Dodgers a week earlier and needed someone to step into the void that Kendrick’s trade had created. Little...

I believe in Johnny Giavotella

I believe in Johnny Giavotella. I don’t mean that in the “I believe in the Easter Bunny” sense of believing. I’m like 95% sure that the magical Cajun elf called Giavotella actually exists. What’s far less certain is whether or not he’s actually as good as his early season performance indicates. There is definitely plenty of reasons to doubt that his strong start is...

2015 Player Projection: Johnny Giavotella

Johnny Giavotella somehow went from being the detritus of the Royals farm system to the presumptive starter at second base for the Angels.

Attention, Johnny G fan club: Giavotella recalled from Omaha; Royals go without a lefty in 'pen

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Johnny Giavotella fan club can rejoice. At least for a few days. Giavotella, popular to a certain segment of the fan base, was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday and immediately inserted into the second spot in the lineup as the starting second baseman. But caution: Giavotella's stay likely will be brief. Giavotella probably will be with the club for...

Kansas City Royals rumors: Omar Infante edition

Second baseman Omar Infante would be a great addition to the Royals in 2014.( The Kansas City Royals have had a relatively quite offseason up to this point. The most noise that has come out of Kansas City was the potential signing of Carlos Beltran, but failed to as he signed with the Yankees. It’s time to make a splash though, and second base seems to be the spot that...
