ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Cameron Maybin will need some time to get used to playing left field for the Los Angeles Angels after a big league career spent in center.Maybin thinks hell require no time at all to get comfortable hitting in front of Mike Trout and Albert Pujols.The Angels acquired the 29-year-old outfielder from the Detroit Tigers on Thursday in a trade for right-hander Victor Alcantara. Los Angeles also announced it will exercise Maybins $9 million contract option for 2017.Maybin batted a career-best .315 with four homers, 43 RBI and 15 stolen bases in 94 games for the Tigers. Despite a late start due to a broken wrist from getting hit by a pitch in spring training, he also hit .380 with runners in scoring position, one of the majors best marks.After Maybin learned he had been traded for the fifth time in less than nine years, he immediately warmed to the idea of hitting a lineup featuring two of the games top sluggers.Being on this team, with the way they play baseball and constantly have guys moving, whether its hit-and-run or stealing bases or bunting, I think I fit in with this style of play really well, Maybin said. Im looking forward to playing for Mike Scioscia. Ive enjoyed watching how he manages from afar. I look forward to being part of that poetry in motion.Maybin will have to make two moves with this trade, however: Along with relocation to Orange County, hell have to slide over to left field.Maybin primarily has played center for his entire career, but general manager Billy Eppler expects Maybin to be the Angels everyday left fielder alongside Trout and right fielder Kole Calhoun. Maybin hasnt played in left since a five-game stint during his first big league season in 2007 with Detroit.I am attached to (center), but anybody whos been around me (knows) I always put the team first, Maybin said. With the athletic ability Ive been given, I think I can probably go out there and be one of the best left fielders in the game. ... I look forward to playing left field alongside Mike Trout. You put two center fielders out there, I think Ill be able to make his job a lot easier, and vice versa.The 23-year-old Alcantara has spent five years in the Angels minor league system. He went 3-7 with a 4.30 ERA in 29 appearances for Double-A Arkansas last season, yet the alarmingly shallow depth of the Angels farm system made him one of their better prospects.The Angels got minimal production out of left field in 2016, the teams worst season since 1999. Los Angeles finished fourth in the AL West at 74-88, a steep decline from the 2014 team that won 98 games with the best record in baseball.Eppler swung the first trade of the baseball offseason to shore up a position of seemingly perpetual need for Los Angeles. While an MVP candidate and an above-average major leaguer occupy the other two outfield spots at the Big A, left field has been a problem in recent years.The Angels also have a dismaying recent history of acquiring veterans who underperformed once they joined the outfield, including Josh Hamilton, Gary Matthews Jr., Vernon Wells, Matt Joyce, Daniel Nava and Craig Gentry.Eppler was particularly interested in Maybin after getting an endorsement from Bud Black, Maybins manager in San Diego and Epplers current special assistant.This was something that clearly was an objective of ours heading into the winter, Eppler said. Weve been able to acquire a guy that we are happy to put in left field and give him an opportunity to play every day.The Tigers also exercised their $6 million option for 2017 on closer Francisco Rodriguez, who finished second in the AL with 44 saves in a remarkable season for the former Angels right-hander known as K-Rod. The option contained a $2 million buyout. Robbie Ray Jersey . President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest was fired Friday after 12 years with the Marlins.

LONG POND, Pa. -- With rain pelting the garage roof at Pocono Raceway and knowing hed have to wait another day to race, Mikhail Aleshin just shrugged.No big deal for the first Russian-born driver to win an IndyCar pole.Just one more day sitting on the pole, Aleshin said Sunday. Thats life. I just want to win this race. For me, it doesnt matter if its going to be today, tomorrow, or next month. Im still on the pole.IndyCar officials acted quickly Sunday and postponed the race at the triangular 2.5-mile track until 12:09 p.m. ET Monday because of persistent midafternoon rain. With no lights to allow for night racing and no quick end to the downpour in sight, drying the track in time to get in 101 of the 200 laps to make the race official was not possible. The race was scheduled to begin at 3:09 p.m. Sunday.Aleshin turned a fast two-lap average of 220.454 mph on Saturday in his No. 7 Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda to edge Josef Newgarden for the pole. Its the third time this season Newgarden has qualified second. He was on the front row at the Indy 500 and at Iowa, just missing the top spot Saturday with a two-lap average of 220.195 mph.Takuma Sato will start third, followed by Helio Castroneves, Carlos Munoz, Aleshins teammate James Hinchcliffe, Alexander Rossi, Will Power, Tony Kanaan and Ed Carpenter. Points leader Simon Pagenaud qualified 14th in windy conditions, while defending race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay crashed in morning practice and did not qualify.Team Penskes Pagenaud and Power are 1-2 in the points standings, separated by 58 points, and sitting aroundd another day wasnt exactly what they wanted to be doing.ddddddddddddIts back-to-back races coming up -- three in a row, Power said. It is what it is. Sit back and relax for the night and get ready to [go] again tomorrow. Nothing really changes. When you wake up in the morning, you get a little bit nervous and butterflies.Both Power and Pagenaud, who was hanging out with his Jack Russell terrier, Norman, said they were disappointed for the fans.Only three races remain in the IndyCar season after Pocono -- Texas, Watkins Glen and the season finale at Sonoma on Sept. 18, which is worth double points. Next weeks Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway is a makeup from a race in mid-June that also was postponed by rain -- after the drivers had completed only 71 of the scheduled 248 laps.Newgarden is fourth in the standings and wont be able to race at Texas because he crashed out of the race. Starting on the front row at Pocono still gives him a glimmer of hope, though he trails Pagenaud by 120 points.Were taking it as it is, Newgarden said. Were going to have a points loss there [at Texas]. Well push forward from that.Rain at Pocono Raceway three weeks ago pushed the finish of the NASCAR Sprint Cup race until Monday. Rookie Chris Buescher raced to his first Sprint Cup victory as continued bad weather shortened that event.A blue sky and warm temperatures had settled in over Pocono before Sunday and the forecast for Monday was for more sunshine.
