Already down an outfielder following Josh Hamilton‘s thumb injury, the Angels have placed Kole Calhoun on the disabled list after he injured his ankle last night.

Calhoun tweaked his ankle running to first base on an extra-inning ground out and had to be helped off the field. Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that he was on crutches after the game, but seemed hopeful that the ankle wasn’t broken.

It’s rough news for the Angels, but also for Calhoun because this was going to be his first extended opportunity in the majors at age 26. He fared well in a 58-game stint with the Angels last season and has a strong minor-league track record, including hitting .318 with 26 homers and 22 steals in 164 games at Triple-A.

    His ankle would be fine if he just dove (dived?) into first base. Kids these days…*smdh*

      Yeah, ask Hamilton how his broken thumb is, compared to a high ankle sprain.
