UPDATE: Calhoun will miss 4-6 weeks with a bad ligament sprain, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.

The Angels are already without Josh Hamilton for the next several weeks, and now fellow outfielder Kole Calhoun has hit the 15-day disabled list with a twisted right ankle.

Calhoun sustained the injury while running to first base in extra innings against the Athletics on Tuesday night. Here's the play in question:

Calhoun had to be helped off the field, and, as MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez writes, he was on crutches after the game.

This is a blow for the Angels, as the 26-year-old Calhoun, who has a strong minor-league track record, was coming off a quality 2013 season for the Angels and slugging .500 in the early going this year.
