Angels’ shortstop Erick Aybar was a late scratch yesterday with a leg injury, writes Kevin Baxter of the Los Angeles Times:
Shortstop Erick Aybar, pulled from the lineup just before the game Thursday, will have an MRI exam Friday in Tampa, Fla., in an effort to determine the cause of persistent soreness in his upper left leg.
“We’ll see how it is,” Scioscia said. “This might keep him out a couple of days.”
Aybar is hitting .254/.306/.333 with 20 stolen bases this season in 132 games, but has struggled mightily since the All-Star break, hitting .205/.249/.272.
