Hamilton scheduled to make Angels debut


TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Angels are expected to unveil their new offseason prize Tuesday, when Josh Hamilton debuts with his new team against the D-backs' split squad.

The Angels will play at Tempe Diablo Stadium, in a 12:05 p.m. PT game that will be broadcast on MLB.TV.

Second baseman Howie Kendrick and third baseman Alberto Callaspo are also expected to debut, meaning every starting position player except Albert Pujols -- not slated to play in Cactus League games until about mid-March -- will have appeared in at least one game.

"It's not just Josh, we're working toward hopefully starting to get this whole group together within a couple weeks," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Once we see that and get them out there, and get that on-field chemistry going, that's what we're excited for."
