Angels | Kotchman on fast track to recovery

The Los Angeles Times reports Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Casey Kotchman (mono), who missed all but 29 games last season while recovering from the symptoms of mononucleosis, had played in 30 Puerto Rican winter league games through Friday, batting .261 with three home runs, six doubles and 11 runs batted in, 12 walks and 12 strikeouts in 111 at-bats. "He feels good physically," Angels general manager Bill Stoneman said. "We thought, and he thought, it was important for him not to come to spring training having done nothing since last year. This should be a big boost for him physically and for his confidence."
