December 13, 2011

Iannetta eager to play for Angels

December 13, 2011

Chris Iannetta’s “Get Out of Jail Free” card arrived two weeks ago when the St. Raphael Academy alumnus was acquired by the Los Angeles Angels to be their everyday catcher.

Keep in mind that Iannetta has yet to suit up for his new manager, but that didn’t stop Mike Scioscia from lavishing praise upon his new catcher during last week’s winter meetings.
