Kendry Morales injured in walkoff celebration

Morales got airborne as he neared a pile-up of  Angels players at home plate and injured his ankle on the way down.  He looked to be in a good deal of pain and had to be carted off the field after lying in the batter’s box for several minutes.  The Halos didn’t reveal much information after the game, but X-rays eventually revealed a fracture in his lower left leg, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The 26-year-old Morales is batting .290 with a .346 on-base percentage, 11 home runs and 39 RBI in 51 games this year.  There’s a strong chance that he could be out for several months.

    That’s what happens when a person gets too cocky with themselves!!!!!! Karma is a motherf—–! Not that I wish anybody to get hurt, but that’s the problem with the world today, people are too cocky when they are successful and too whiny when they fail! What happened to the respectful, strong, silent types, that’s the world we live in now, all for me and f— you! Terrible in my opinion!

    anyone know who is the favorite for playing time at first base in Morales’ absence?

    Karma for being too cocky? Really? Seemed like he just wanted to celebrate with his teammates like we’ve seen happen hundreds of times before after a walk off bomb.
    It’s a disappointing end, or prolonged pause, in what was turning out to be a second strong very season for someone most people declared a bust not very long ago.

    My condolences to all the Angels fans out there.
