Right fielder Vladimir Guerrero left the Los Angeles Angels' game against the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night with a strained muscle behind his left knee.
Guerrero fielded a single by Elvis Andrus and was about to make a throw when it looked like he stepped awkwardly on his left leg.
Guerrero then fell to his hands and knees, but got up and walked around before trainers came out to look at his leg. Guerrero, who was hitting .291 with four home runs, walked off the field on his own and was replaced by Gary Matthews Jr.
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.
