Kendry Morales Ankle Surgery Set for Sunday

We get a lot of email here at Halos Heaven... and while it is always nice to hear from the Angels themselves, this email was pretty much the biggest bummer of the season and 2nd only to the announcement of Rory's death at the beginning of the year.

From The Angels to the blogs, sites, papers and broadcasters:

**MEDIA ADVISORY**

KENDRY MORALES MEDICAL UPDATE
WHO: Angels’ first baseman Kendry Morales sustained an injury to his lower left leg at home plate at the conclusion of today’s game after hitting a game-ending grand slam. He was carted off the field on a stretcher and taken locally for X-rays. Morales will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a corresponding move to be announced.
WHAT: X-rays taken today revealed a fracture of the lower left leg. It was determined that surgery will be required tomorrow (May 30th) with Dr. Phil Kwong performing the procedure (Foot & Ankle Specialist with Kerlan-Jobe Clinic). No timetable has been set for a rehab schedule or his return. The Cuban native was leading the Angels in several offensive categories, including average (.290), home runs (11), total bases (94) and RBI (39). He was on-pace for a career-best 35 home runs and 124 RBI. Morales was the only Angel to appear in all 51 games.
