Angels owner Arte Moreno said the DEA investigation into Tyler Skaggs' death is still ongoing, but wouldn't get into details. He confirmed that he pulled out of the Dodgers trade, but said there were "other factors involved." One point he made clear throughout a half-hour media session: He still wants to acquire a top-of-the-rotation starter.

Trout rips Astros, calls for more punishment

Three-time AL MVP Mike Trout ripped the Astros for sign stealing and questioned the discipline handed out by Major League Baseball after he reported to spring training on Monday.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike Trout was, like so many others, pretty firm on the Astros. Some reached out to apologize, but Trout said he "lost respect" for some of them and thinks they should've been punished. Did he hear banging on the trash cans at Minute Maid Park? "I didn't notice the hanging on the trash can — I noticed the banging on the bat. It just seems like they weren't missing pitches."

Shohei Ohtani, 25, got his driver's license this offseason, but has yet to drive on his own and has so far avoided the highway. He never drove in Japan because it's too long a process to secure a license and he never felt like he needed one. He considers himself a "pretty good" driver.

Angels RHP Anderson (oblique) out 4-6 weeks

Angels right-hander Justin Anderson will be sidelined for four to six weeks after injuring his oblique muscle while playing catch, manager Joe Maddon said.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts spoke with Joc Pederson, who lost in arbitration and was headed to the Angels in a deal that ultimately fell through. Roberts said Pederson "absolutely" wants to remain a Dodger. "Joc's invested a lot of time and energy into this organization, on the field and in the community. Obviously, understanding the landscape of an organization and his job as a player, things potentially could happen. But ultimately, how it played out, he's thrilled to be with us for 2020."

Ohtani fine with Angels delaying mound return

Shohei Ohtani has no problem with the Angels' plan to delay his return to the mound until mid-May so they can preserve his pitching arm for later in the season. The two-way star also wouldn't have minded if they wanted him to start on Opening Day, either.

Theo acknowledges 'differences' with Maddon

Theo Epstein saw more "cause for concern" with the Cubs last season in that he didn't see Joe Maddon's usual approach working anymore, while Maddon said the front office "wanted to change everything."

Angels target mid-May for Ohtani mound return

Angels GM Billy Eppler said knee surgery in September has delayed the timeline for Shohei Ohtani to return to the mound as a pitcher until mid-May. Until then, he will continue to contribute to the team as a hitter.

I can confirm that the Dodgers-Angels deal that would have sent Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling to the Angels for Luis Rengifo, and others, is off, as multiple outlets have reported. It sounds as if the Dodgers no longer deemed it necessary, though I'm not sure why.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Kendrys Morales talked to me about his decision to retire after a 13-year MLB career: “It was a hard decision but everything in life must come to an end. I spent many years, starting in Cuba, playing baseball and lost a lot of time with my family. That's one of the reasons why I made the decision to retire, to make up for lost time. Baseball has also changed, and maybe veteran players like me are not valued, so it's the best time for this decision. It's the right decision for me and my family.”
