Daily Links for the LA Angels including Kendrick might end up on the DL, Aybar proving his versatility in the lineup, Willits hoping to use his bat to earn some playing time and much more...
The Monkey Says: So much for them not expecting him to miss more than a day or two. It sounds like he is unlikely to play in this Oakland series, so I can't imagine the Halos would let him sit out much beyond that without DLing him given there depth problems.
The Monkey Says: The funny thing about Aybar's improvement this year is that it seems to have him on the track to being a leadoff hitter, but I tend to think that since he has shown he can only be successful by being very aggressive at the plate makes him better suited for hitting in the bottom half of the order rather than trying to be a table-setter where patience is always going to rule the day.
The Monkey Says: Nothing against Reggie, but if Kendrick is going to hit the DL, the Halos should try and find someone that they can call up and more a more significant impact on the offense than Willits and his slap-hitting bat could possibly do.
