BY foxsports • June 13, 2009

Mike Scioscia wasn't kidding when he said things are going to change around the Angels' clubhouse.

The first salvo came after Friday night's 11-6 victory over the San Diego Padres, when slumping second baseman Howie Kendrick was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake because of his .231 batting average. Maicer Izturis, who started in place of him, tied a career high with four of the Angels' 18 hits.
