Angels outfielders Mike Trout and Torii Hunter earned American League co-Players of the Week honors on Monday. Becoming that spark at the top of the order, Trout hit .520 (13-for-25) with four RBIs, 10 runs scored and four stolen bases in six games last week. Hunter hit .500 (11-for-22) with four home runs, 10 RBIs and 10 runs scored in five games last week. It marked Hunter's third career Player of the Week honor. Trout and Hunter are the first teammates to share the weekly distinction since outfielder Josh Hamilton and pitcher Colby Lewis of the Rangers did so on June 14, 2010. Dodgers: Uribe reinstated; Castellanos optioned
The Dodgers activated infielder Juan Uribe from the disabled list on Monday and optioned Alex Castellanos to Triple-A Albuquerque. However, manager Don Mattingly opted to keep Uribe out of the starting lineup for the series opener against the Angels. Uribe did pinch-hit with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and was hit by a pitch. He played three straight rehab games with Class A Rancho Cucamonga before returning, going 3-for-10 with a home run, a triple and three RBIs. "One more day is going to be the best thing for us," said Mattingly. Worth noting
The Angels have a Major League-best 67-30 record in Interleague Play since 2007, followed by the Detroit Tigers at 59-37 and the Boston Red Sox at 59-38. Despite dropping five straight games at home, the Dodgers have the the best home record in the Majors at 21-10.
