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.

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.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 17 August 2011 at 5:49 pm

21-year old righty swinging 1B/DH C.J. Cron was the #17 overall pick in the first round of the 2011 Amateur Draft last June. He decided to get right to work despite having a tear in his right shoulder that will need surgery at the end of the year. Cron played in 34 games in Rookie ball this year and he was 44 for 143 (.308 avg, 1.000 OPS) with 30 runs scored, 13 homers and 41 RBIs. He was DHing this year to protect his shoulder, but he will miss the rest of this season due to surgery on his right knee to repair ligament damage after he dislocated the knee over the weekend. Cron has a huge upside for the Angels and he should be ready to go next spring.
