CLEVELAND (AP) — Los Angeles Angels pitcher Félix Peña has a torn ACL in his right knee and has been placed on the 10-day injured list.
Peña was injured covering first base in the second inning Saturday against Cleveland. He went to the ground after crossing the bag to record the out and grabbed his right leg.
Peña was down for several moments before being carried to the dugout by first baseman Albert Pujols and an athletic trainer. An MRI revealed the injury.
Manager Brad Ausmus said the team won’t know until after the surgery is completed when the 29-year-old right-hander will begin a rehabilitation program. Peña leads the team in wins and is 8-3 with a 4.58 ERA in 22 games.
Shortstop Andrelton Simmons (sprained left ankle) and right-hander Griffin Canning (elbow inflammation) were placed on the 10-day IL on Sunday.
