The Angels have clawed their way back to second place in the AL West with the help of a bullpen that has been one of the best in baseball since the start of June, while journeyman Ricky Nolasco hasn't allowed a run in his past 65⅓ innings after a couple of rough starts. And there might be good news on the horizon: Mike Trout 's 85-minute workout on Friday "went great," so his return from the DL might not be far off. -- John Fisher, ESPN Stats & Information

In his past 67 games, Turner had with 68 stolen bases and 68 runs scored. Stephen Drew is a respectable replacement, but he's definitely not Turner. Drew does bring a little power, with nine home runs in 758 at-bats dating back to the start of last season. -- Mark Simon, ESPN Stats & Information
