Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 11 August 2013 at 2:05 pm

The Angels have placed 30-year old righty swinging 2B Howie Kendrick on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 6th, due to a sprained left knee.  Kendrick has played in 108 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 126 of 419 (.301 avg, .778 OPS) with 48 runs scored, 11 homers, 47 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  The Angels will get a good look at 25-year old righty swinging Grant Green while Kendrick is out of action.  Green has played in 4 games for the Angels since coming over in the Alberto Callaspo deal with the A’s and he is 5 for 13 (.385 avg, .885 OPS) with 1 run scored.  The Angels hope that Kendrick only needs to miss a couple of weeks.

Albert Pujols is likely done for the 2013 season for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 28 July 2013 at 2:58 pm

33-year old righty swinging 1B Albert Pujols has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 27th, due to a left plantar fascia problem.  If he elects to have surgery (a distinct possibility), it will end his 2013 season.  Pujols has played in 99 games for the Angels this year and he is 101 of 391 (.258 avg, .767 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 17 homers, 64 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Pujols has now played in 253 games in his first two years with the Angels and he is 274 of 998 (.275 avg, .823 OPS) with 134 runs scored, 47 homers, 169 RBIs and 9 stolen bases.  27-year old righty swinging Mark Trumbo will take over as the full-time 1B for the Angels now.  He has played in 102 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 98 of 392 (.250 avg, .786 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 22 homers, 60 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  With the way Pujols was running this year, I’m surprised he gutted it out this long.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 30 June 2013 at 3:40 pm

The Angels have placed 26-year old righty swinging outfielder Peter Bourjos on the 15-day disabled list due to a fractured right wrist.  He has played in 40 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 42 of 129 (.326 avg, .834 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 3 homers, 10 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  Bourjos has now played in 339 games in his first four years with the Angels and he is 252 of 980 (.257 avg, .720 OPS) with 139 runs scored, 24 homers, 87 RBIs and 39 stolen bases.  The Angels will miss Bourjos’ speed and defense while he is out of action.

The Angels have placed 26-year old righty starting pitcher Tommy Hanson on the 15-day disabled list due to a right forearm injury.  Hanson has pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 4-2 with a 5.10 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP.  Hanson has given up 57 hits (9 homers) and 17 walks while whiffing 33 batters in his first 47 2/3 innings this year for the Angels.  Hanson started 3 games in June and he was 2-0 despite having a 7.43 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP.  The Angels shouldn’t rush Hanson back this time, as they don’t need him hurting himself upon his return to action.

The Los Angeles Angels place Jason Vargas on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 21 June 2013 at 5:19 pm

The Los Angeles Angels have placed 30-year old lefty starting pitcher Jason Vargas on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 18th due to a blood clot in his left arm.  Vargas has pitched in 14 games (all starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 6-4 with a 3.65 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  31-year old righty Jerome Williams will likely replace Vargas in the starting rotation.  Williams started 7 games earlier this year for the Angels in which he was 4-2 with a 3.48 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP.  Williams has now pitched in 18 games (7 starts) overall this year for the Angels and he is 5-2 with a 3.14 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP.  The Angels have called up 29-year old righty Billy Buckner to replace Williams in the pen as the long man.  Buckner started 1 game earlier this year for the Angels and he was 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.  He also pitched in 12 games (all starts) in AAA-ball this year and he was 6-2 with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP.  The Angels hope that Williams can step up and cushion the blow of Vargas’ loss, because he’s going to be out a while.

The Angels have placed 28-year old righty reliever Robert Coello on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 10th, due to right shoulder inflammation.  Coello pitched in 13 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 2-2 with 1 save, a 4.30 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  The Angels have called up 30-year old righty reliever Dane De La Rosa to replace Coello in the bullpen.  De La Rosa pitched in 27 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the Angels and he was 1-1 with a 4.05 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP.

The Los Angeles Angels have placed 30-year old lefty reliever Sean Burnett on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 27th, due to left elbow inflammation.  He has pitched in 13 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 0.93 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.  This is a bad break for the Angels, as Burnett has been a big time asset out of the pen so far this year.

The Los Angeles Angels place Peter Bourjos on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Tuesday 30 April 2013 at 8:01 pm

The Los Angeles Angels have placed 26-year old righty swinging CF Peter Bourjos on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left hamstring.  Bourjos has played in 22 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 26 for 79 (.329 avg, .860 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 2 homers, 8 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Bourjos has now played in 321 games in his first four years with the Angels and he is 236 of 930 (.254 avg, .716 OPS) with 129 runs scored, 23 homers, 85 RBIs and 36 stolen bases.  This is a bad break for Bourjos, as he has really been swinging a hot stick so far this year.  Mike Trout will slide over from LF to replace Bourjos in CF until he’s ready to return to action.

The Angels have placed 30-year old lefty reliever Sean Burnett on the 15-day disabled list due to left forearm irritation.  Burnett has pitched in 11 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 1.04 ERA anda  1.39 WHIP.  Burnett has given up 8 hits and he has walked 4 batters while whiffing 7 batters in his first 8 2/3 innings pitched.  The Angels hope that Burnett is ready to return in a couple of weeks as he has been a huge asset to the pen so far this year.

The Los Angeles Angels place Mark Lowe on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Saturday 20 April 2013 at 12:08 pm

The Angels have placed 29-year old righty reliever Mark Lowe on the 15-day disabled list due to neck stiffness.  I’m not surprised as his neck stiffness is likely due to whiplash with the way he has been pitching so far in 2013.  He has pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 11.37 ERA and a 1.90 WHIP.  Lowe has given up only 4 hits and he has whiffed 6 batters in his first 6 1/3 innings for the Angels this year, but he has walked 8 batters which has gotten him into a lot of trouble so far.  Hopefully his control problems were because of his neck, as he has a really good arm.
