The Angels will be without catcher Jeff Mathis for the next 6-8 weeks due to a fractured right wrist. This is a bad break for Mathis who was off to the best start of his major league career. Mathis has played in 10 games this season for the Angels and he is 11 for 34 (.324 avg, .851 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 1 homer, 3 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Mike Napoli will likely be elevated back to his old starting role behind the plate. He has played in 7 games this season and he is 3 for 19 (.158 avg, .396 OPS) with 1 run scored and 1 RBI. The Angels’ D will likely suffer a bit with Napoli behind the plate but he will add a lot of power to the batting order. Bobby Wilson will move up the depth chart to the #2 slot. He has only played in 1 game for the Angels so far this season and he is 0 for 1 (.000 avg). The Angels have recalled 1B/3B Robb Quinlan to replace Mathis on the active roster.
