Izturis activated, Wood to DL

The Angels have activated infielder Maicer Izturis from the 15-day disabled list (right shoulder inflammation) and placed third baseman Brandon Wood on the 15-day DL retroactive to May 24 with a hip flexor strain.

The team also optioned reliever Bobby Cassevah to Triple-A Salt Lake and recalled from the same team right-handed reliever Francisco Rodriguez.

Izturis is batting .256 in 14 games and leads the team with a .500 average (6-for-12) with runners in scoring position. He is in Tuesday night’s lineup against the Blue Jays, batting eighth, with Reggie Willits in center field batting ninth, giving Torii Hunter a day off.

Wood is batting .156 in 122 at-bats with two homers and seven RBIs. — Lyle Spencer

    no shock there. a broken bat like that often takes a few weeks to recover from. hoping wood takes some time to get his game right, and i’m glad izzy’s back. i think he may be the spark plug the angels’ offense needs. if he can just stay healthy for a few months.

    im a huge angel fan, and glad to have a break from watching Wood strike out! This kid is not ready for ” big boy play”. Im not on that “figgy trip” but we need serious 3rd baseman who could at least not be a definite out every time he is up to bat, i do appreciate the bathroom break i take every time he is up, but how long do we wait for him to “get it”? Is’nt that what the minors are for?
