Angels trying Alexi Amarista, Mark Trumbo in outfield
Trumbo, who played 32 error-free games in right field and one in left field during six minor-league seasons, took fly balls in the outfield during spring training and repeated the practice Monday afternoon in Fenway Park prior to the Angels game against the Red Sox.
Trumbo leads American League rookies in nine offensive categories including homers (4), runs batted in (13), runs (11) and hits (23).
Amarista has played 41 games in the outfield in the minors -- most of them in center. But he hasn't played there in three seasons. He also took fly balls in Boston on Monday under the watchful eye of Scioscia and coach Dino Ebel.
