Anaheim Angels: There has never been any doubt about it: Brad Fullmer can hit a baseball. Whether he can do it against both right- and left-handers remains to be seen. He's leading the American League with a .392 batting average headed into May and is proving to be a big bargain for the Angels, who got him at a greatly reduced rate in 2003 after allowing him to become a free agent. His hot start is giving manager Mike Scioscia cause to consider playing him every day, writes Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. Fullmer has a .601 OPS against left-handers over the past three seasons.
