The Angels have placed 29-year old righty swinging catcher Bobby Wilson on the 7-day disabled list due to a concussion. Wilson has played in 32 games for the Angels this year and he is 13 for 76 (.171 avg, .403 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 0 homers and 1 RBI. The Angels have called up 24-year old switch-hitting catcher Hank Conger to replace Wilson on the roster. Conger made his season debut with the Angels last night and he went 1 for 3 with a double. Conger also has played in 17 games in AAA-ball so far this year in which he was 25 for 74 (.338 avg, .872 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 2 homers, 11 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Conger has now played in 73 games in his first three years with the Angels and he is 43 for 209 (.206 avg, .629 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 6 homers and 24 RBIs. As long as Conger can stay healthy, he will likely be the Angels’ starting catcher until Chris Iannetta comes off the D.L.

The Angels have placed 29-year old righty starting pitcher Jered Weaver on the 15-day disabled list due to a lower back strain. Weaver has pitched in 11 games (all starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 6-1 with a 2.61 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP.

Richards has pitched in 10 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the Angels so far this year and he is 5-2 with a 4.31 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP.

The Angels have placed 32-year old lefty swinging outfielder Ryan Langerhans on the 15-day disabled list due to a separated right shoulder. Langerhans has played in 2 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 0 for 1 (.000 avg) with a strikeout.

Cassevah has pitched in 18 games (0 starts) in A+AAA-ball this year and he is 1-0 with 4 saves, a 5.29 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP. He has pitched in 46 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Angels and he is 2-3 with a 2.87 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. The Angels shouldn’t miss Langerhans too much, as Cassevah should be able to help the pen a little bit.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Tuesday 22 May 2012 at 7:56 am

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.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Friday 11 May 2012 at 7:51 am

The Angels have placed 29-year old righty swinging catcher Chris Iannetta on the 15-day disabled list due to surgery on his right wrist. He will be out the next 6-8 weeks. Iannetta has played in 26 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 13 for 66 (.197 avg, .706 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 3 homers and 9 RBIs. 29-year old righty swinging Bobby Wilson will probably replace Iannetta in the starting lineup for the most part. He has played in 12 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 6 for 27 (.222 avg, .522 OPS) with 1 run scored and 1 RBI. The Angels hope that Wilson steps up and takes advantage of the opportunity that has been laid in front of him.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Monday 7 May 2012 at 9:16 am

The Angels are going to be without 39-year old righty reliever LaTroy Hawkins for a while as he fractured his right pinkie last night while earning the save. Hawkins has pitched in 10 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-1 with 1 save, a 1.08 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. The Angels were lucky that they dealt for Ernesto Frieri last week, as he is going to be a very important pitcher for the Angels now. The Angels are going to miss Hawkins.

UPDATE: (5/7/2012) – LaTroy Hawkins is likely going to be out 4-6 weeks.
