Vernon Wells has torn ligaments in this thumb and will have surgery to repair it tomorrow according to his Twitter feed
. Mike DiGiovanna speculates
a 6-8 week recovery time, and I would be willing to bet it's longer than that.
Update: Per the Angels press release (not yet available on the website), the injury is to the ulnar collateral ligament of the thumb. orthogate.com says rehab for this is about three months.
Update 2: Michael Kohn will go on the 60-day DL to make room for Kole Calhoun. Ryan Langerhans' separated shoulder will not require surgery, but he will go on the 15-day DL anyway.
