The Angels have placed 29-year old switch hitting infielder Maicer Izturis on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder. Izturis has played in 14 games this season for the Angels and he is 10 of 39 (.256 avg, .695 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 10 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. The Angels have called up 27-year old righty swinging infielder Kevin Frandsen and they stuck him right into the lineup at 3B. He made a couple of nice plays last night and he was 3 for 4 with a run scored. Frandsen has played in 26 games in AAA-ball this season in which he was 26 of 97 (.268 avg, .708 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 2 homers, 8 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Frandsen could get a lot of playing time for the Angels while he is up but they will still miss Izturis who could also handle playing shortstop.
