Angels lineup too crowded for Willits

ARLINGTON -- The Angels could give outfielder Reggie Willits a shot at solving their leadoff problems, but manager Mike Scioscia said he can't commit to someone who's not getting a lot of playing time.

The Angels are set with their outfield lineup of Torii Hunter, Bobby Abreu and Juan Rivera, with Hideki Matsui at designated hitter. So there's not a spot to get Willits in the lineup on a regular basis, even though his game is suited for the top of the order.

"It's tough to look at other things," Scioscia said.
