Fowler (knee) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. The 35-year-old has already been ruled out for the season with a torn ACL, so it was only a matter of time before he moved to the 60-day IL. Fowler will undergo surgery sometime in the near future and will face a 6-to-9-month recovery. Jon Jay had his contract selected from the taxi squad with Justin Upton dealing with back stiffness and Juan Lagares (calf) also on the injured list.
The Angels announced Sunday that Fowler suffered an ACL tear in his left knee after exiting Friday's 7-1 win over the Blue Jays, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. He's expected to undergo season-ending surgery at a later date. Initially diagnosed with a left knee contusion, Fowler's injury was later clarified as a sprain when the Angels placed him on the 10-day injured list Saturday. Follow-up tests apparently revealed ligament damage, which will require a procedure that will sideline Fowler for around 6-to-9 months. In addition to spelling an end to Fowler's season, the injury could also end the 35-year-old's time as an everyday payer in the majors. Los Angeles will have Juan Lagares fill in for Fowler in right field in Sunday's series finale with the Blue Jays, but expect the Angels to eventually add competition at the position.
Fowler was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left knee sprain Saturday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Fowler wasn't expected to require a trip to the injured list after he was carted off the field, but he'll miss at least 10 days after he was diagnosed with a left knee sprain. Juan Lagares should start in right field against left-handed pitchers in Fowler absence, but manager Joe Maddon said that Jose Rojas and Jared Walsh could also see time in right field, Ardaya reports.
Fowler (knee) isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays. Fowler was diagnosed with a left knee contusion after he was carted off the field in Friday's win over the Blue Jays, but he isn't expected to require an IL stint. Juan Lagares is starting in right field Saturday, batting ninth.
Angels manager Joe Maddon said Friday that he doesn't think Fowler (knee) will need to go on the injured list, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. Fowler had to be carted off the field in the second inning of Friday's win over the Blue Jays, but he appears to have avoided a serious injury. Fowler should be considered day-to-day, and Juan Lagares could fill in as the right fielder if Fowler is held out of the lineup in the coming days.
