Mark Trumbo returns to Angels lineup for weather-threatened game against Cubs

March 21, 2011 |  8:56 am

Lhgp4onc First baseman Mark Trumbo, who missed four games because of right groin tightness, is back in the lineup for Monday's Cactus League game against the Chicago Cubs in Tempe Diablo Stadium, but there is a chance the game will be rained out.

It feels a lot like Chicago this morning in the Phoenix area, where the forecast calls for a 100% chance of rain and winds up to 27 mph. It began drizzling in Tempe at 8:30 a.m.

Probable opening-day starter Jered Weaver is slated to pitch for the Angels, who are scheduled to field a lineup of: SS Erick Aybar; 2B Howie Kendrick, DH Bobby Abreu, RF Torii Hunter, LF Vernon Wells, 3B Alberto Callaspo, 1B Mark Trumbo, C Jeff Mathis, CF Peter Bourjos. Reliever Kevin Jepsen is also scheduled to pitch.
