Angels shelve Aybar

The Angels will limp along without shortstop Erick Aybar for at least the next couple of days after suffering damage to the meniscus of his left knee, according to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register .

Aybar hyperextended his knee on Monday on a play at second when Milwaukee's Casey McGehee slid into him on a force play. On the play, Aybar was clearly not trying to turn the double play and McGahee went in hard to take him out.

An MRI done Tuesday revealed the damage to the cartilage in Aybar's knee. There is yet to be a determination on how long he will be out, but he will be re-evaluated later this week.

Aybar's injury does free up a spot for Brandon Wood, Plunkett noted. Wood was activated before Tuesday's game and started at third base. Wood should also split time at shortstop with Maicer Izturis. Izturis has been on the disabled list once already this season with shoulder inflammation and also been bothered by leg issues.

"It'll be day-to-day," Mike Scioscia said of his lineup. "We'll have enough depth there to see how Maicer holds up."

maybe this is the opportunity Brandon Wood needs to finally get untracked at this level.  I hope Aybar is back soon, he's a lot of fun to watch.

Who the heck slides like that when they are up by 8 runs.  I swear I hope we deck  McGhee I dont care.  Aybar is tough gamer and I hope he takes his time and comes back strong in time for the AL West crown.  Even though we've had an up and down season, I still dont think Texas has enough balls to take the West from us.  I see a close race with us edging the Rangers in the last two weeks.  I still feel we need that extra power bat and Konerko would be awesome.  Hunter, Mats, Konerko, Rivera, and Nap in the middle sounds like a tough lineup.  GO ANGELS!!!
