Thanks a lot, Kevin Youkilis.
Dan Haren's debut in an Angels uniform was cut short on Monday night thanks to a line drive to the fore arm from Kevin "I-have-a-mound-of-pubes-on-my-face" Youkilis in the 5th inning.
The former Diamondbacks pitcher struck out eight batters and had only given up two runs before leaving the game with the injury. He was credited with the loss, as the Halos were trailing 2-1 when he left the game. Boston ultimately won the contest 6-3.
Haren is hopeful that the injury isn't anything serious, saying "It's a little sore but nothing throbbing. There's nothing that I'm worried about. Hopefully I'll get a decent night's rest and wake up and it won't be so bad. I'll get some treatment and I'll be out there soon." He'll have some x-rays taken later today to check out what, if any, damage might have been done.
Haren was traded to the Angels last Sunday for lefty Joe Saunders and three prospects. The Angels are looking to gain some ground on the Texas Rangers, who currently have a lead in the AL West of seven and a half games over the Angels and the A's.
