The Angels waited as long as they could before putting Chone Figgins on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring. Figgins has played in 32 games this season for the Angels and he is 37 for 121 (.306 avg, .776 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 7 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. Figgins will be replaced at 3B by rookie Brandon Wood and Robb Quinlan. Wood is off to a slow start this season as he has played in 11 games for the Angels and he is 4 for 26 (.154 avg, .483 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 1 homer and 1 RBI. Wood has whiffed an amazing 11 times and he will need to make more contact than that if he wants to stay in the majors. Veteran Robb Quinlan hasn’t got much playing time yet this season. He has played in 13 games for the Angels this season and he is 6 for 29 (.207 avg, .568 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs. The Angels will miss Figgins big time for what he does at the top of their batting order.
