He has been hitting well in the minors lately - any word if he is going to be called back up?

Any thoughts on how this might affect Maicer Izturis? I have him plugged in at SS in a deep league and I did find the following on Yahoo:

Izturis started Saturday's game, at shortstop, and went 3-for-5 in the Angels' victory.

Recommendation: A day earlier, manager Mike Scioscia indicated that Izturis would still see playing time at second base despite the recall of Howie Kendrick. Expect Izturis to see a little more playing time than usual at second while also rotating with Erick Aybar at shortstop.

The question is whether Izturis will be full time or not. I can stand him missing one game a week but not more than that. Anyone got any more than the above?

I live where the Angels have their Triple A team, and follow minor leagues pretty well, when Alberto Callaspo was in their system both him and Kendrick were very similar in the minors (Callaspo had some attitude issues though), I think in the long run we will see from Kendrick .280-.300 + average, 10hrs and a few sbs, if we are lucky we might see a Jose Vidro (in his prime) clone.
