The Angels have signed utility infielder Ian Stewart, a former Westminster La Quinta High star who was a first-round pick of the Colorado Rockies in 2003, to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Stewart has a career .232 average with a .319 on-base percentage and .417 slugging percentage, 59 home runs and 204 runs batted in over six seasons, five with the Rockies and one with the Chicago Cubs. The 29-year-old third baseman and second baseman was suspended for 10 games without pay by the Cubs last season for going on a Twitter rant about his reduced role in the organization, a violation of the loyalty clause in his contract.

NEW YORK -- Third base is beginning to look like a platoon position for the Angels, with the left-handed-hitting Ian Stewart getting the start over struggling David Freese against New York Yankees right-hander Hiroki Kuroda on Friday night, the third time in six games Manager Mike Scioscia has gone with such an alignment. The lack of regular playing time is making it difficult, if not impossible, for Freese, who is batting .145 (nine for 62) with one homer, five runs batted in, 20 strikeouts and five walks in 17 games, to find any rhythm, timing or confidence at the plate.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Ian Stewart may be the early leader for baseball's strangest spring-training injury. The Angels infielder suffered a bruised - but not broken - nose late Sunday night when he inadvertently butted heads with his 4 1/2-year old daughter, Ellsi. “She was lying in bed on her stomach watching TV, and when I went to put her to bed, I kind of lunged at her,” Stewart said. “I don't know if I scared her, or what, but she sat up and our heads came together at the same time, my nose to the back of her head.

Angels 11, Detroit Tigers 6 AT THE PLATE: Ian Stewart, a late addition to the lineup when third baseman David Freese was scratched because of right quadriceps tightness, came within a home run of the cycle, hitting a run-scoring triple in the second inning, a double in the fourth and a single in the seventh. Mike Trout doubled twice, drove in two runs and scored twice, as the Angels amassed 10 or more extra-base hits in a game for the second time this week. The Angels also lead the American League with 27 homers.

Ian Stewart, 21, of Lake Hughes joined the Marine Corps three years ago to help find himself and was looking forward to returning home next year. The 2001 graduate of Quartz Hill High School had discussed becoming a firefighter but first wanted to travel around Europe and spend more time customizing a four-wheel-drive 2003 GMC Sonoma that he bought this summer.

Angels 8, Cubs 4 AT THE PLATE: Ian Stewart, who appears to have the edge over several candidates for a reserve spot, sparked a six-run ninth inning with a home run and capped the rally with a run-scoring single. Grant Green (triple), Collin Cowgill (double), J.B. Shuck (single), Shawn O'Malley (run-scoring single) and Abel Baker (two-run single) added hits in the inning. Raul Ibanez hit his second spring home run, and Josh Hamilton doubled. ON THE MOUND: Jered Weaver, pitching in a triple-A game against Milwaukee so the Angels could regulate his workload, gave up four hits, struck out eight and walked one in seven scoreless innings, throwing 102 pitches.

Ian Stewart hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, lifting the Colorado Rockies over Cincinnati, 4-3, Monday afternoon and ending the Reds' winning streak at seven games. The National League wild card-leading Rockies won their fourth in a row despite losing Troy Tulowitzki. The shortstop left in the seventh inning after a run-scoring single because of a strained lower back and was listed as day to day. Rafael Betancourt (2-1) pitched a perfect eighth inning and Franklin Morales, filling in for the injured Huston Street, pitched out of a jam to pick up his fourth save in five chances.

Why is the universe so mathematical? This question, which may never have occurred to you, turns out to be one of the stickiest philosophical conundrums of the day. The short answer is that no one knows the answer. No one knows why mathematics--an invention inside our heads--so accurately describes the physical world, the independent world outside. Eugene Wigner, a Nobel laureate in physics, put the question 35 years ago in an essay titled, "The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics."

TEMPE, Ariz. - It's far too early to determine how Albert Pujols will rebound from a subpar season that was cut short by a left-foot injury, but early returns on the slugger are encouraging. "I feel awesome," said Pujols, who had right-knee surgery after 2012 and suffered a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his left foot last July. "To be able to do things with no pain or discomfort, to have my legs underneath me, to move around and have the load I want in my swing … that's the biggest difference.

There will be no shortage of competition among veterans for bench spots after the Angels agreed to terms Wednesday with first baseman/third baseman Chad Tracy on a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. The agreement was confirmed by Alan Nero, Tracy's agent. Tracy, who bats left-handed, was relegated to a pinch-hitting role with the Washington Nationals in 2012 and 2013 and had only 136 plate appearances in 92 games last season, when he hit .202 with four home runs and 11 runs batted in. But Tracy, 33, started for the Arizona Diamondbacks in his first three big-league seasons (2004-2006)

Rookie sensation Stephen Strasburg was scratched from his scheduled start for the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night because he had problems warming up before the game against the Atlanta Braves. The right-hander was being examined by a team doctor and "appropriate tests will be taken after that," including possibly an MRI exam or X-ray, General Manager Mike Rizzo said. Tulowitzki returns All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was activated by the Colorado Rockies after sitting out nearly six weeks because of a broken left wrist.

Marine Cpl. Ian Stewart, 21, and Marine Cpl. Michael D. Anderson Jr. lost their lives in Iraq last week (obituaries, Dec. 19). As we mourn their deaths, Time magazine has named George W. Bush its Person of the Year (Dec. 20). The criteria for its choice must have been the loss of more than 1,200 troops, thousands more in hospitals, the countless billions spent in assuring that oil will flow in the Bush neocons' veins, and other monstrous decisions. Time chose well! Mediocrity and greed rule this country.

Good news: Manny Ramirez returned to the field for the Dodgers Saturday after sitting out 14 games because of a right calf strain. Bad news: Whatever boost he brings will come in the batter's box, not on the pitcher's mound. This point was ominously foreshadowed before the Dodgers' 8-0 loss to Colorado by Manager Joe Torre when he was asked if Ramirez' return would send the Dodgers surging. "He can't pitch," Torre said. "Our ability to go on a surge is going to be based on how well we pitch and how well we control the game."
