He’s not expected to go on the IL

What looked like a very scary injury luckily turned out to be not serious at all. During Friday’s game, Dexter Fowler was hurt after this awkward play at second base.

He exited the game on a cart with a left knee contusion.

After looking like an injury that could cost him significant time, Angels manager Joe Maddon gave some good news following the game, saying there’s a chance Fowler doesn’t even end up on the Injured List.

There is still a chance it could require him to miss a few games, but that certainly is good news considering like this looked like an injury that could sideline him for some time.
