Anthony Rendon is coping with a sore left groin, Angels supervisor Joe Maddon informed reporters (together with Fabian Ardaya of the Athletic and Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times). Maddon doesn’t count on Rendon to play in tomorrow night’s recreation in opposition to the Royals, and it isn’t out of the query the star third baseman may require a stint on the injured checklist. The always-productive Rendon is off to a powerful begin to the 2021 season, with 9 hits (together with a house run) and 5 walks over his first 37 plate appearances.
Extra out of the sport’s West divisions:
- Based on Dodgers supervisor Dave Roberts, Tony Gonsolin’s return is “a methods away for me with the place he’s at.” Roberts informed Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register and different reporters that Gonsolin had but to start a throwing program since being positioned on the 10-day injured checklist final Sunday. Gonsolin is sidelined with shoulder irritation that started to trouble the right-hander round Opening Day, which was why he didn’t get any recreation motion previous to his IL placement.
- Earlier than at the moment’s recreation in opposition to the Rockies, the Giants positioned reliever Reyes Moronta on the 10-day injured checklist with a proper flexor pressure, Kerry Crowley of the Bay Area News Group was amongst these to notice. Whereas that sounds ominous, particularly since Moronta missed your complete 2020 season recovering from shoulder surgical procedure, supervisor Gabe Kapler mentioned it’s a minor pressure (via Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle). To switch the right-hander on the lively roster, the Giants recalled LaMonte Wade Jr. Acquired from the Twins over the offseason, Wade went 2-4 with a stroll in his Giants’ debut this afternoon.
