Green to join Angels
Infielder Grant Green is expected to join the Angels from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, one day after second baseman Howie Kendrick left the game early with a hyperextended left knee, a source told MLB.com.
Who he replaces remains to be seen.
Kendrick is having an MRI on his knee and could land on the disabled list, though he was still hopeful of avoiding that Monday night. But even if Kendrick remains day-to-day, he’d be out for a little while and the Angels — already at 13 pitchers and 12 position players — need more infield coverage.
Green, acquired from the A’s for third baseman Alberto Callaspo last Tuesday, played two games at second and four games at third in Salt Lake, batting .333.
