Well this about sums up the Angels injury riddled season:
Today’s transactions:— Angels PR (@LAAngelsPR) August 21, 2018
OF Justin Upton – Placed on 10-day DL with left index finger laceration (retro to 8/19)
OF Jabari Blash – Recalled from Salt Lake
And oh - look who’s back! Hello Jabari. This should be fun.
Wondering how this happened? Was it a 5 star play in the outfield? Batting practice injury? Was he trying to save a drowning child in the river? Nope. Here it is:
#Angels left fielder Justin Upton will go on the DL with a lacerated finger that required 4 stitches. According to Upton he cut it on a wine glass while at home in Arizona last night.— Jack Sommers (@shoewizard59) August 22, 2018
You are on a 5 year / 106 million dollar contract and you can’t have someone wash your dishes for you? Geesh. It’s the first person I would hire.
Jabari Blash gets the call from Salt Lake, but don’t expect him to play much. Blash, who is just 2 for 23 with 14 Ks in the big leagues this year is mostly roster filler (and a stat padder for opposing pitchers). Cowart, Young, and Calhoun are holding down the outfield grass tonight and Mike Trout is back on Friday. Still, Blash will get some at bats so buckle up folks.
