Kendrick this week?

Postby mattiace » Sun Apr 27, 2008 11:35 pm

Howie Kendrick, sidelined since April 14 because of a left hamstring strain, tried to run at full speed Sunday but still felt a little discomfort and fatigue, Scioscia said.

The second baseman, who is batting .500 in 36 at-bats, is eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday but probably won't be activated until later in the week.

"It's moving in the right direction," Scioscia said. "We're optimistic that if it's not Tuesday, it will be soon after that."


Could really use him in my lineup this week- has anyone heard anything else? Would you gamble on him coming back Tuesday?

Sounds like he'll be back this week but not sure if it'll be Tuesday:

Howie Kendrick has been running sprint at near full speed, going through agility drills and running the bases, but he said he still feels "a little something" in the area of his strained left hamstring. Kendrick will be eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday but might need an extra day or two to get back to full strength.

"Obviously, I'd like to be back out there as soon as possible," Kendrick said. "But the thing is it has to be 100 percent. … We'll see."

rotoworld is reporting Kendrick should be back on Friday.

Howie Kendrick (hamstring) is expected to play a game at Single-A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday and come off the DL the following day.
Matt Brown or Brandon Wood will be sent down to make room for him.

Kendrick went 2 for 3 today with the Quakes. Maybe he will be activated before the Angels' game Monday.

Per CBS:

Kendrick expected to return Monday

Howie Kendrick, 2B ANA

News: Angels 2B Howie Kendrick (hamstring) started for Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday. He singled twice after grounding out in his first at-bat and showed no signs of pain while running or playing defense, according to MLB.com. He'll join the Angels for Monday's game at Kansas City, where they'll likely activate him from the 15-day DL.

Analysis: Kendrick is batting .500 in between two stints on the DL and has only begun to flash his potential at age 24. He's an obvious must-start in Fantasy when healthy. If you can afford to give him a week to prove his health, do so. If not, get him active for Fantasy Week 6 (May 5-11).

He wont be back until at least Friday. He is just such a puss.


KANSAS CITY -- Sean Rodriguez is No. 4 on the Angels' depth chart at second base, but he was the No. 8 hitter in manager Mike Scioscia's lineup in the series opener with the Royals on Monday night.
Howard Kendrick's return was "pushed back just a couple days," according to Scioscia, after he played five innings on Sunday for Class A Rancho Cucamonga.

"He felt good -- just not where it needs to be," Scioscia said, indicating Kendrick will play again for Rancho Cucamonga on Tuesday if his strained left hamstring allows. "We want to give him more work there."

Kendrick, a .500 hitter for the Angels this season in 36 at-bats, hasn't played since straining the hamstring while running the bases in Seattle on April 13. After jamming his right thumb in an at-bat against the Indians' Fausto Carmona and missing three games, Kendrick had collected six hits in two games against the Mariners when he felt pain in the hamstring while getting ready to stretch a double on a cold afternoon at Safeco Field.

Playing for Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday, Kendrick had two hard singles in three at-bats and handled defensive duties without a hitch. He passed a major test on the bases when he broke up a double play at second base, getting up and racing to third after an errant throw.

Kendrick has said he won't come back until the hamstring is 100 percent, not wishing to risk an injury that would set him back for significant time.

"He felt good coming out of the batter's box," Scioscia said. "We'll let him rest today and [have him] try [to play] tomorrow if it feels stronger. We'll see when he can join us."
