The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim haven't carried a Rule 5 pick on their big league roster since 2000, when RP Derrick Turnbow. However, left-handed RP Brian Moran has a chance to break the streak.

Moran is battling Ps Robert Carson and Clay Rapada to be a second left-handed relief option behind RP Sean Burnett (elbow), who is returning from an elbow surgery and might not be ready for the regular season opener.
