Angels line up starters for weekend showdown
ANAHEIM -- The Angels essentially have their rotation set for the weekend series against the Rangers, with Jerome Williams starting Friday's opener opposite Colby Lewis, C.J. Wilson getting a rematch against Yu Darvish on Saturday and Dan Haren likely to start the finale on Sunday, vs. lefty Matt Harrison.

Sunday was supposed to be Jered Weaver's day, but the ace right-hander was placed on the disabled list with a lower back injury on Tuesday. Because of the Thursday off-day, Haren -- who gave up one run in seven-plus innings in a win over the Yankees on Tuesday -- will pitch that game on normal rest.

Righty Garrett Richards, called up from Triple-A to take Weaver's spot in the rotation, will likely start Monday or Tuesday at home vs. the Mariners.

Wilson's first encounter with Darvish took place May 11 but hardly played out. A two-hour rain delay in the first inning that night took Wilson out of the game after facing just five batters -- though Darvish came back to pitch 5 1/3 innings of an eventual 10-3 victory -- and Wilson got the win the following afternoon.
