BC-BBA-Angels-Outfield,0397Angels Guerrero, Hunter closer to return to action
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Ñ The Los Angeles Angels are getting closer to having Vladimir Guerrero and Torii Hunter back in their lineup.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Friday that both Guerrero and Hunter are making good progress and that it is possible that both could be playing as soon as next week.
