Angels' Hunter out with bruised left hand

CBSSports.com wire reports

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Torii Hunter has been held out of the Los Angeles Angels' lineup Saturday night because of a bruised left hand.

Hunter was injured in the first inning Friday night against the Dodgers, when he was hit by a pitch from Hiroki Kuroda. The nine-time Gold Glove winner played two innings in the field before coming out of the game. X-rays and a CT scan both were negative.

Hunter entered Saturday batting .239 with eight home runs and a team-high 39 RBI. The four-time All-Star played in each of the first 76 games before missing the three-game series against the Dodgers last weekend because of bruised ribs.

Manager Mike Scioscia said before pregame that Hunter would be available for defense and pinch-running duties.
