Kendrys Morales Stops Batting Practice
Update: Spelling corrected above. I keep forgetting the "s" in "Kendrys".
And with much respect for Mike Scioscia, I'd like to know why on earth Mark Trumbo was benched vs Tampa Bay, when he had just won the game the day before and a LH was pitching(Price)to boot in favor of Amarista(a LH bat).
Mark Trumbo should be given more slack. He has done an excellent job at 1B(mostly)and has won quite a few games for the Angels. The veterans are allowed to go through slumps. Also, Bourjos is still learning offensively but there is no doubt he will be a fine leadoff man, must work on stealing.
What in earth is the problem with Kendrys?
As to Kendrys, so many injuries are related -- it's not uncommon to hear of pitchers who get elbow trouble, try to adjust by using more of their lower body, then end up with a knee problem. One of my friends was a ski patrol member who ended up wrecking both her hip and shoulder, one a consequence of her former life but the latter a consequence of the former injury. So these things can cascade.
