Anthony Rendon expected to miss first Opening Day with Angels

first_imgIf the Angels place him on the injured list, he’d need to miss at least seven games.Despite the season being just 60 games long, Maddon said the Angels don’t want to push Rendon and have him suffer a more serious injury.“You don’t want to bring him back early and lose him for the whole year,” Maddon said.The Angels are likely to use David Fletcher at third and Tommy La Stella at second for the games that Rendon is unavailable. It’s also possible that Luis Rengifo, who has a hamstring issue, could be ready to go by Opening Day, so he could get into the lineup. Most likely Rengifo would play second against a lefty, with Fletcher at third.ALSOJulio Teheran came out of Tuesday night’s bullpen session well, Maddon said. Maddon said pitching coach Mickey Callaway “liked a lot what he’s seeing.” Teheran is next scheduled for a two-inning simulated game.
