(CLEVELAND) — The Los Angeles Angels placed second baseman Howie Kendrick on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, with a hyperextended left knee.
Kendrick hurt himself during the Angels’ game versus the Rangers Monday night. Kendrick was chasing after a fly ball when his knee hit off teammate Collin Cowgill’s arm. Kendrick immediately went to the ground, staying there until he was helped off the field.
Kendrick had an MRI on the knee, which showed no structural damage. The Angels hoped a couple days of rest would allow Kendrick to recouperate, but he still hasn’t been able to run or resume baseball activities.
“He’s made a little progress,” Angels head coach Mike Scioscia. “But in talking to (head athletic trainer Adam Nevala), it’s not the type of progress you’d hope to see where he might not have to go on the DL.”
Kendrick is hitting .301 with 11 home runs, 48 runs scored and 47 RBIs.
The Angels called up left-hander Buddy Boshers from Triple-A Salt Lake.
