The Los Angeles Angels continue their homestand by opening a three-game series with the Kansas City Royals on Monday night at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. Shortstop Erick Aybar, who fouled a ball off his right foot on Saturday, sits for the second straight game with a right big toe contusion.
Maicer Izturis gets the start at shortstop for the Angels. Peter Bourjos gets the call in center field, starting for the fourth time in five games, though he is in an 0-for-10 and 4-for-27 slump. C.J. Wilson is on the mound for the Halos, facing Bruce Chen for Kansas City.
