The Angels have placed starting 2B Howie Kendrick on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring. Kendrick has played in 10 games for the Angels this season and he is 18 for 36 (.500 avg, 1.220 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 4 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. The Angels have recalled 22-year old righty swinging Sean Rodriguez from the minors to replace Kendrick on the active roster. Rodriguez will likely share time with Maicer Izturis until Kendrick is ready to return. Rodriguez has played in 1 game so far for the Angels and he is 1 for 4 (.250 avg). Rodriguez also played in 13 games in AAA-ball this season and he is 15 for 45 (.333 avg, 1.175 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 4 homers, 11 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.
