The Angels have placed starting LF Vernon Wells on the 15-day disabled list due to torn ligaments in his right thumb. He needed surgery to repair his thumb which will cause him to miss the next 8-10 weeks. Wells played in 38 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 33 for 135 (.244 avg, .704 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 6 homers, 12 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Peter Bourjos will likely get a huge bump in P.T. until Wells is ready to return to action. Bourjos has played in 30 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 13 for 67 (.194 avg, .545 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 1 homer, 9 RBIs and 1 stolen base. The Angels have called up 24-year old lefty swinging outfielder Kole Calhoun to replace Wells on the active roster. Calhoun came into this season as the Angels’ #20 prospect according to Baseball America. Calhoun has played in 43 games in AAA-ball this year and he is 50 for 169 (.296 avg, .856 OPS) with 30 runs scored, 5 homers, 31 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. Calhoun has played in 232 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 275 of 883 (.311 avg, .928 OPS) with 167 runs scored, 34 homers, 172 RBIs and 29 stolen bases.
