The Los Angeles Angels place Chone Figgins back on the D.L.

Chone Figgins’ last stay on the active roster lasted exactly one game as he reinjured his hamstring in his first game back to action. Figgins has played in 33 games for the Angels this season and he is 38 for 124 (.306 avg, .778 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 7 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. Luckily for the Angels, starting 2B Howie Kendrick was ready to be activated off the D.L. to replace Figgins on the roster. Kendrick has played in 13 games this season for the Angels and he is an amazing 19 for 44 (.432 avg, 1.072 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 7 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. The Angels will likely let Robb Quinlan and Brandon Wood share 3B until Figgins’ is ready to return. Wood has had big issues with major league pitching thus far this season. He has played in 20 games for the Angels this season and he is 6 for 50 (.120 avg, .350 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 1 RBI. Wood has also whiffed an amazing 17 times this season as he has looked totally overmatched in the majors this season. Quinlan is not nearly as good as Wood is defensively at 3B but he’s been a much better hitter so far this season. Quinlan has played in 25 games for the Angels this season and he is 16 for 63 (.254 avg, .621 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 1 homer and 4 RBIs. The Angels really miss Chone Figgins at the top of their batting order.
