Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon placed on the 10-day injured list due to a strained left hamstring

CINCINNATI – Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a strained left hamstring.

The 33-year-old Rendon was injured when he made an infield hit during Saturday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds.

Rendon strikes. 267 with three RBIs this season. He started the season 0 for 19 and has 20 goals since April 5.

The third baseman, an All-Star with Washington in 2019, is in the fifth season of a seven-year, $245 million contract. He has not played more than 58 games in any season with the Angels due to a series of injuries.

Rendon played just 43 games last season and had three stints on the injured list. He played only 47 games in 2022 due to a wrist injury. Rendon had a series of injuries that limited him to just 58 games in 2021.

The Angels selected the contract of infielder Ehire Adrianza from Triple-A Salt Lake. Right-hander Robert Stephenson was moved to the 60-day IL to make roster space for Adrianza.
