 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -Angels manager Mike Scioscia is confident that Vladimir Guerrero will be sidelined only a couple of days recovering from a wrist injury.
The Los Angeles slugger bruised his right wrist when hit by a pitch from Boston's Josh Beckett in the first inning of Monday's 7-2 loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Guerrero received treatment all day Tuesday as trainers worked to reduce the swelling before he begins to regaining range of motion.
``Actually he feels much better than he could have been,'' Scioscia said Tuesday before the Angels opened a two-game series against the Oakland Athletics. ``We're very encouraged. Hopefully he'll be ready to go Friday.''
,'' Scioscia said.
The Angels are off Thursday, then host the Seattle Mariners for a weekend series.
When asked how he felt, Guerrero said in Spanish, ``Not good.''
Guerrero, the team's right fielder who is hitting .364 with three home runs and 12 RBIs this season, was struck on an 0-2 pitch after Orlando Cabrera hit a one-out homer.
Plate umpire Rick Reed issued a warning to Beckett and the Angels, though Beckett said Reed told him he didn't think the pitcher had intentionally hit Guerrero - who has no interest in wearing protective body armor like that Barry Bonds sports in the batter's box.
``Getting hit is part of baseball and always will be part of baseball,'' Scioscia said. ``Especially with Vlad, it's a byproduct of trying to pitch him aggressively. He doesn't give much. He stays in there a long time and occasionally he's going to get hit. ... We're going to hit our share of guys by pitching inside aggressively. That's the way I think you accept the hit by pitch.''
