Starting 2B Howie Kendrick was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Angels with a broken bone in a finger of his. He’s likely to miss about a month. This will hurt the Angels who have had problems scoring runs. Kendrick has played in 14 games this season for the Angels and he is 16 for 49 (.327 avg, .855 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 2 homers, 4 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. In the short team, Erick Aybar will replace Kendrick. Aybar has played in 7 games so far this season and he’s 1 for 8 (.125 avg). When Chone Figgins returns, Maicer Izturis will likely shift to 2B until Kendrick is ready to return.
