Dan Haren to make Angels debut Monday
The Angels thus would use Haren -- on regular rest -- Monday against the Boston Red Sox and would line him up to pitch Saturday against the first-place Texas Rangers. The Angels also want Jered Weaver to face Texas, so they will keep Weaver as Tuesday's starter against Boston and bump Joel Pineiro from Monday to Wednesday.
Scheduled starters for the Red Sox series:
Monday night: Haren versus Clay Buchholz
Tuesday: Weaver versus John Lackey, in Lackey's first start in Anaheim since signing with the Red Sox
Wednesday: Pineiro versus Josh Beckett
