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 MLB.com’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.
