The Angels might be without shortstop Erick Aybar for the next several days.

According to Kevin Baxter of the Los Angeles Times, Aybar underwent an MRI on his left side Wednesday that revealed an oblique muscle strain.

The Angels have not yet placed Aybar on the 15-day disabled list and are obviously hoping that he won’t need to go, but time will tell on that matter.

If he’s not feeling any progress by this weekend, the Halos will have no choice but to pull the trigger and bring in more infield depth from the minors.

“We’ll evaluate it,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Wednesday. “He’s only been able to bunt. We’ll see how he is Friday, if he can maybe be part of the game a little bit more if we need him to do something.”

For now, the Angels will rely on Maicer Izturis and Brandon Wood as their primary fill-ins at shortstop.

    ooof, the New Black ain’t done with the MLB yet? I thought we’d moved on to appendicitis as the in fashion injury?
