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.
