Angels' David Fletcher: Shifts to 60-day IL
Fletcher (hip) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.
The 27-year-old is expected to miss multiple months after undergoing surgery to repair the adductor muscles in both legs last week, so it's not a major surprise he was moved to the 60-day IL to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Fletcher will be eligible to be activated in mid-July, but his recovery timeline likely won't come into focus until he's able to resume baseball activities.... See More ... See Less
Angels' David Fletcher: Facing multi-month absence
Fletcher (hip) underwent surgery to repair the adductor muscles in both legs Tuesday and is expected to be sidelined for "a couple months," Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The 27-year-old landed on the injured list Sunday with a strained left hip and is now likely to be sidelined until at least the All-Star break in July. Fletcher missed over two weeks with the injury before returning from the injured list April 29, but he never fully recovered and could no longer play through the issue. Tyler Wade should see most of the action at the keystone until Matt Duffy (illness) returns from the COVID-19 IL.... See More ... See Less
Angels' David Fletcher: Sidelined by hip injury again
The Angels placed Fletcher on the injured list Sunday with a left hip strain.
Fletcher was previously sidelined for two and a half weeks earlier this season with the same hip issue before returning from the IL on April 29. He appeared in only nine games before succumbing to the injury again, however, making it likely that he'll be sidelined for more than the minimum 10 days once again. According to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register, the 27-year-old is scheduled to meet with a specialist in the coming days to determine if surgery is necessary to treat the injury. If Fletcher does require a procedure, he said he wouldn't expect to miss the rest of the season, though a multi-month absence would likely be on the table. His absence should pave the way for Tyler Wade to see steady work at the keystone.... See More ... See Less

Angels' David Fletcher: Sits Monday
Fletcher is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the White Sox, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
The 27-year-old is one of four Angels regulars who will take a seat as the team wraps up its four-game set in Chicago with an afternoon contest. After returning from the 10-day injured list Friday, Fletcher started in the middle infield in each of the first three games of the series and went a collective 3-for-9 with a pair of doubles and two walks....

Fletcher went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles Friday in a 5-1 win against the White Sox.
Fletcher made his return to the club Friday after missing over two weeks due to a hip injury. He started at shortstop before shifting over to second base later in the contest.

Even with the multi-hit effort, he's batting only .176 through 17 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Angels' David Fletcher: Activated, starting Friday
Fletcher (hip) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and is starting Friday's game against the White Sox, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Fletcher participated in an extensive on-field workout Thursday, and the Angels ultimately deemed him healthy enough to return to action for Friday's series opener in Chicago.

Angels' David Fletcher: Could be back Friday
Fletcher (hip) went through an extensive on-field workout Thursday and could be activated in advance of Friday's series opener with the White Sox in Chicago, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Manager Joe Maddon suggested just one day ago that Fletcher still wasn't running at 100 percent following a recent four-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Salt Lake, but the 27-year-old may have assuaged some of the concern about his health after Thursday's workout. The Angels will likely re-evaluate Fletcher early Friday before deciding whether to include him in the lineup later that night, or to wait another day or two prior to activating him from the 10-day injured list. Whenever Fletcher is back in action, he's expected to take back everyday duties at shortstop from Andrew Velazquez.... See More ... See Less
Angels' David Fletcher: Not running at full speed
Fletcher (hip) joined the Angels on Wednesday to be evaluated and won't be activated from the injured list in the immediate future, as manager Joe Maddon indicated the infielder may not be running at 100 percent, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
The 27-year-old has played in four games at Triple-A Salt Lake since beginning his rehab assignment late last week, but he's apparently still having some issues with his hip. Maddon said Fletcher hasn't suffered a setback, but the ongoing problems could delay his return from the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Angels' David Fletcher: Could return Monday
Angels athletic trainer Mike Frostad said Fletcher (hip) will be medically cleared to return from the 10-day injured list following his rehab game Sunday with Triple-A Salt Lake, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
With the Angels' medical team giving Fletcher the green light to rejoin the big club, it'll be up to Los Angeles' front office to decide whether to bring the 27-year-old back from the IL in advance of Monday's series opener with the Guardians. Fletcher, who has been out of the Angels lineup since April 11 with a left hip strain, went hitless with a walk over eight at-bats during his first two rehab games for Salt Lake.... See More ...

Angels' David Fletcher: Begins rehab assignment
Fletcher (hip) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
Fletcher has already spent 10 days on the injured list due to his strained left hip, but he'll miss at least a bit more time. Given the relatively brief length of his absence, he's unlikely to need a long rehab assignment, though the Angels have yet to specify exactly when he's expected to return.... See More ... See Less

Angels' David Fletcher: No timetable for return
Fletcher (hip) isn't traveling with the Angels on their current road trip and does not currently have a timetable for a return, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
According to head athletic trainer Mike Frostad, Fletcher has remained in Anaheim to receive treatment on the left hip that first began to bother him near the end of spring training. The infielder was placed on the injured list April 12 and is eligible to return April 22, but it's unclear if he'll be healthy enough to play by that date. Fletcher went 1-for-13 over five games prior to the trip to the IL.... See More ... See Less
Angels' David Fletcher: Lands on injured list
Fletcher was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a left hip strain.
Fletcher exited Monday's game against the Marlins and will be sidelined for at least the next 10 days after being diagnosed with a strain. It's unclear how long the 27-year-old will be out, but he'll be eligible to be activated for the April 22 game versus Baltimore. Tyler Wade and Jack Mayfield should see most of the action at shortstop in his absence, which could also result in more playing time at the keystone for Matt Duffy. However, Andrew Velazquez will start at shortstop Tuesday after being promoted from Triple-A Salt Lake.... See More ... See Less
