Angels have put Vlad on the DL. And Hunter, too -- tough day in SoCal!
The only info so far is from a press release with no info on the prognosis. But does mention Vlad also has a "lower hamstring strain," which I don't believe had been been disclosed.http://www.seattlepi.com/scorecard/mlbn ... eID=261134
Angels put Guerrero and Hunter on DL
Friday, July 10, 2009
Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - The LA Angels of Anaheim lost two-thirds of their outfield to the disabled list Friday, as Vladimir Guerrero and Torii Hunter were both shelved.
Guerrero suffered a strained muscle behind his left knee and a lower hamstring strain during a July 7 game against Texas on a defensive play in right field. He was playing the outfield for just the second time this season, spending most of the year as the designated hitter after previously missing 38 games while on the DL for a torn right pectoral muscle.
Hunter, meanwhile, is sidelined with an adductor strain on his right side. He also last played on July 7 and will miss next Tuesday's All-Star Game.
The Angels recalled infielder Brandon Wood and catcher Bobby Wilson from Triple-A Salt Lake to fill the roster spots.
Wood was batting .313 with 17 homers and 52 runs batted in at Salt Lake, while Wilson was hitting .261 with seven homers and 27 RBI.
