Howie Kendrick has not started a game since August 5 due to a left knee strain and that probably will not change until this weekend, but the second baseman was officially activated from the disabled list on Tuesday afternoon and could be available off the Angels’ bench on Tuesday night in Toronto.

Kendrick told’s Alden Gonzalez that his knee feels “100 percent,” but the out-of-contention Angels don’t want to risk re-injury on the unforgiving turf at Rogers Centre. Grant Green is at second.

Kendrick, 30, was hitting .301/.341/.437 with 11 home runs and 47 RBI through 108 games this season for Anaheim before suffering the knee injury.

He is under contract with Anaheim through the 2015 campaign.

    if angels plan to trade him around or atleast hear some trade talk, I really hope the yankees try hard and make a move with the angels. With A-rod potentially missing 50-1000 games and Jeter still hurting with the ankle we need a back up plan and Nunez is not it. I figure the angels are going to retool a bit and obviously want to contend with these huge contracts but a few moves can do wonders. Atleast for the Yankees :)

    And because we’re not talking Albert Pujols, his total contract worth need not be mentioned at the end.

    Reasonable contract and a guy who has maintained a certain level of consistency at 2B with solid defense. If the Angels had more guys like him and less past their prime supercontracts they would be in the thick of it.
