Kole Calhoun headed for MRI on sore hamstring – Orange County Register

TORONTO — Kole Calhoun could be on his way to what has become a lengthy disabled list for the Angels.

Calhoun came out of Sunday’s game with tightness in his right hamstring. He will undergo an MRI exam on Monday.

“I’m definitely concerned, any time you’ve got to come out of a game,” Calhoun said. “Tomorrow is going to tell us a lot more. It’s soreness right now. But we don’t really know anything other than soreness. The MRI will definitely show us.”

Calhoun said he felt something grab while running to first after a ground ball in the third inning. He ran from first to third before coming out of the game.

“I knew I couldn’t really get after it,” he said.

Calhoun would be the third of the Angels’ top three outfielders to hit the disabled list.

The Angels are currently without Cameron Maybin, a sprained knee landing him on the DL for the second time this season. They also played six weeks without center fielder Mike Trout.

Most of the injuries have been to the pitching staff. The Angels currently have eight pitchers among their nine players on the disabled list.

ENDING THE STREAK

Albert Pujols put an emphatic end to an 0-for-24 streak that was one of the longest hitless stretches of his career. His longest was an 0-for-26 last year.

He ended it with a two-run homer in the first inning on Sunday. Pujols added a homer in the sixth, along with a single.

“Albert put it together today,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “There were some pitches that he was missing before and he didn’t miss this afternoon. He hit the ball hard.”
