Kelvim Escobar is going to have surgery for his bone spur. It is expected to take him 8 weeks to regain his health.
8 weeks from today would be, hmm, let's see, why a week ahead of qualifying for the postseason roster!
In other injury news, nobody misses Steve Finley, as Jeff DaVannon has been involved in many of the runs scored in the past two games. Menawhile Dallas McPherson has a mild groin pull, so enter Maicer Izturis, probably for the next day or two. I get the feeling we will never see Robb Quinlan in an Angels uniform again.
15 games over .500, key components getting fixed, the backups stepping up. This is good.
