The Angels have placed 25-year old righty swinging 3B Brandon Wood on the 15-day disabled list with a hip flexor strain. Wood has played in 39 games for the Angels this season and he is 19 of 122 (.156 avg, .381 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 2 homers and 7 RBIs. Wood has looked completely overmatched this season at the major league level as he has whiffed 36 times while only walking 2 times. He is out of options so the end of his career with the Angels could be near. The Angels have activated 29-year old switch hitting Maicer Izturis from the D.L. and he is the starting 3B tonight. He has played in 14 games for the Angels this year and he is 10 of 39 (.256 avg, .695 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 10 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Izturis will likely give the Angels vastly improved play both offensively and defensively at 3B.
