ANAHEIM -- Rookie right-hander Mike Morin, 23, has begun his Angels career with eight scoreless appearances, allowing only six baserunners (five hits, one walk) in 8 2/3 innings while striking out seven.

"With a young guy, you kind of always just want to get his feet wet," manager Mike Scioscia said. "Mike has responded really well to any situation he's been in.

"He's shown he's going to throw strikes, and he has the ability to change speeds."
