Kevin Baxter of the LA Times cites Mike Scioscia, telling fans that the Angels will not go outside the organization to find additional starting pitching:
"Our solutions here, short term and long term, are in-house," said Scioscia, who will need an extra starter next Saturday in Minnesota.
Baxter says that right-hander Anthony Ortega is an option for that start in Minnesota, and Scioscia has also named Darren Oliver as a possibility, though he hasn't made a start since 2004.
The Angels have had their starting pitching decimated by injuries to John Lackey, Ervin Santana, and Kelvim Escobar, and the tragic death of Nick Adenhart.
Baxter has updates on the three injured starters, saying that Lackey is long-tossing without pain and Santana will throw off a mound in the next few days. Escobar, on the other hand, had his minor league rehab start scratched last week and did not throw a bullpen session this weekend.
