Jeff Kent To Have Possibly Season-Ending Surgery, Other Roster Notes
- Jeff Kent will have knee surgery, possibly ending his season and career. The best-case scenario is a two-week return, the worst is his career is over.
- The Dodgers called up Chin-Lung Hu from Las Vegas to replace Kent on the 25-man roster.
- The early warnings that the Angels wouldn't get to reunite with David Eckstein proved true, as the Diamondbacks traded him to Toronto for minor leaguer RHP Chad Beck.
- The Angels disabled Shane Loux because of oral surgery, and called up Kendry Morales to replace him on the 25-man roster.
- Erick Aybar and Howie Kendrick may miss the road trip to focus on rehabbing their injured hamstrings.
- The Angels also released relief pitcher Alex Serrano, who had been at Salt Lake.
- San Diego released Brett Tomko and Tadahito Iguchi to make way for prospects Matt Antonelli and Wade LeBlanc.
