29-year old switch hitting 2B/SS/3B Maicer Izturis is almost ready to return to action for the Angels and they can’t wait. Izturis has played in 14 games for the Angels this season and he is 10 of 39 (.256 avg, .695 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 10 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Izturis will likely get a chance right away to boot 25-year old righty swinging Brandon Wood off 3B. Wood has played in 37 games for the Angels this season and he is 19 of 117 (.162 avg, .397 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 2 homers and 7 RBIs. Wood has only walked 2 times this season while whiffing 35 as he shows a utter lack of discipline at the plate.
