Angels put INF Izturis on DL, RHP O'Sullivan up

BY foxsports • June 16, 2010

The Los Angeles Angels put infielder Maicer Izturis on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday because of a strained left forearm, just two days after losing shortstop Erick Aybar to a knee injury.

Utility infielder Robb Quinlan, who was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake when reliever Sean O'Sullivan was recalled from the minors earlier in the day, instead remained with the Angels.

Third baseman Brandon Wood, who came off the DL on Tuesday, started at shortstop for the first time this season in the finale of a three-game series against Milwaukee.

Manager Mike Scioscia said Izturis hurt himself taking swings in the batting cage. This is the eighth time he has gone on the DL in six seasons with the Angels and the second time this year.
