Willits may rejoin Angels on road swing

|
ANAHEIM -- Angels outfielder Reggie Willits played in his third rehab game with Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday and could rejoin the Angels on their road trip next week, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday.

Willits, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring, went 0-for-5 with a strikeout on Saturday and is batting .182 (2-for-11) in three games. But Scioscia said he's not worried about Willits' numbers because it's his first action since he suffered the hamstring strain on March 14 against the Cubs in Cactus League action.

"Reggie will play today and tomorrow, and he's eligible Wednesday, so we'll evaluate where he is. Like any guy who's been down for a while, he's searching for some things at the plate. We'll see how it goes."

Willits is a career .265 hitter with a .365 on-base percentage and 38 stolen bases in 295 big league games with the Angels. The 28-year-old brings versatility to the club with his ability to play all three outfield positions and can serve as pinch-runner or pinch-hitter late in games.
