Angels to Lose Two Outfielders to Disabled List

The Los Angeles Angels have likely lost two outfielders to the disabled list in the game against the San Diego Padres on Sunday, with both Vernon Wells and Ryan Langerhans injured in the loss. Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports:

Wells sported a cast on his right hand and Langerhans was wearing a sleeve to protect his right shoulder. Both will travel to Anaheim for follow-up MRIs on Monday, but neither injury is expected to change the status of Torii Hunter, who’s been on the restricted list for a week and will remain in Texas until the situation surrounding his teenage son (charged with sexual assault of a child) is resolved.

Langerhans, who was added to the Angels' roster to replace Hunter, hurt his shoulder on a diving catch attempt in extra innings. The Angels had to finish the game with Albert Pujols at third base and Howie Kendrick in left field.

No corresponding moves have been announced yet, but at least one replacement appears to be on his way, according to Mike DiGiovanna:

Scioscia suggested the Angels could make some moves on the pitching side after the bullpen saw six and two-thirds innings of work Sunday, so DiGiovanna's guess could be salient.
