Watch that last step....it's a doozy!

It was May of 2010 when Angels 1B Kendry Morales hit a walk off grand slam against the Seattle Mariners. The Angels won the game 5-1 that day, but they lost their slugger for the season. Now, a full year later, news has come out that they will be without Morales for the entire 2011 season as well.  His fractured ankle has healed, but scar tissue has developed on that left ankle and needs to be removed.  Mark Trumbo will be the Angels 1B all season.

In other injury news :

Cubs C Geovany Soto was placed on the DL with a groin strain

Brewers OF Ryan Braun is day to day with a left ankle contusion

Yankees 2B Robinson Cano was beaned in the head and left the game Wednesday night.

Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind hopes to be back on Friday.

Marlins OF Logan Morrison will be activated from the DL Friday.

Braves OF Jason Heyward hopes to return by the weekend from his shoulder injury.

A’s SP Dallas Braden is having shoulder surgery and is out for the season.

Rays OF BJ Upton is serving his 2 game suspension Thursday and Friday.  Wait what?  Wasn’t that last week?  Yes…he appealed the suspension.

GAME NOTES

The Mets/Rockies game was rained out and will be made up on Thursday at 3 PM EST.

Wednesday night was a bad night to be a closer as 4 of them blew saves.  Walden, Kimbrel, Soria & Capps all blew saves.

Padres SP Tim Stauffer gave up 6 runs and 9 hits in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday afternoon to the Brewers.  Not to be outdone, Brewers SP Randy Wolf gave up 5 runs on 12 hits in 3 1/3 innings.

Twins SP Scott Baker gave up 5 runs on 6 hits in 4 1/3 innings with 5 walks and 6 Ks.  OF Jason Kubel went 2-3 with a homer and 4 RBI.  Tigers DH Victor Martinez stayed hot going 3-4 with a homer and 3 RBI.  1B Miguel Cabrera was 1-3 with a run & 2 RBI before getting ejected in the 6th for arguing balls & strikes.

Reds SP Edinson Volquez went 4 innings giving up 3 runs on 3 hits with 5 walks & 3 Ks.

Mitch Moreland owners are saying What the H?  about the rainout, while Gio Gonzalez fans are ecstatic.  The Rangers had a 7-0 lead in the fourth highlighted by Moreland’s grand slam, when there was a 3 hour rain delay.  Eventually the umpires officially called the game.  Gio had given up 7 runs on 6 hits with 5 walks in 2 2/3 innings.

Dodgers SP Hiroki Kuroda went 7 shutout innings giving up 3 hits, 3 walks, and a career high 8 Ks in the win over the Pirates.

Red Sox SP John Lackey continued his struggles giving up 9 runs on 9 hits with 5 walks in 6 2/3 innings to the Blue Jays.  Sox 1B Adrian Gonzalez homered, giving him 4 in his last 4 games.  He’s also 10-20 over that stretch.

Rays SP David Price went 8 innings giving up 2 runs on 5 hits with 0 walks & 7 Ks.  Adam Jones was 4-4 with a triple and 2 RBI.  That was DigDug’s first 4 hit game this season.  He’s not Pac Man after all.

Cardinals SP Jake Westbrook was bombed by the Cubs for 5 runs on 6 hits in 2 1/3 innings.  Cubs SS Simon Castro went 4-4 with a triple, 3 RBI, and 3 runs scored.

White Sox SP Jake Peavy made his 2011 debut Wednesday against the Angels.  Peavy went 6 innings and gave up 7 hits, 4 runs, 0 walks and 4 Ks.  His opposition, Angels rookie Tyler Chatwood went 6 1/3 innings, scattering 8 hits, 1 run, 3 walks and 0 strikeouts.  Neither were involved in the decision as the White Sox came back to win 6-4 in 10 innings.

The Yankees lost to the Royals in another game that went extra innings.  Yankees SP AJ Burnett went 7 innings, giving up 1 run on 1 hit with 5 walk and 6 Ks.  SS Derek Jeter was 0-6.  OF Curtis Granderson hit his Major League leading 12th homer.  He was 2-5 with 2 RBI and even stole a base.  But the story of the night was Royals 1B Eric Hosmer.  He went 1-4 with 2 runs, 2 RBI, a walk and K.  It was his first major league homer, and he also knocked in the game winning RBI in the 10th inning.
