ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -The Los Angeles Angels placed catcher Mike Napoli and infielder Erick Aybar on the 15-day disabled list, and optioned outfielder Nick Gorneault to Triple-A Salt Lake of the Pacific Coast League on Monday.
To replace them on their 25-man roster, the AL West-leading Angels recalled catcher Jeff Mathis from Salt Lake and activated outfielder Garret Anderson and infielder Maicer Izturis from the disabled list.
Napoli sprained his left ankle on the final play of Sunday's 4-3 victory over Baltimore. He is hitting .243 with eight homers and 29 RBIs in 56 games.
Aybar bruised his right hand in the third inning of Sunday's game at Baltimore. He is hitting .236 with 15 RBIs in 61 games.
Gorneault was hitless in four at-bats with a run scored in two games with the Angels. He was recalled last Friday when the Angels designated Shea Hillenbrand for assignment.
Anderson has been on the disabled list since June 7 with a strained right hip flexor. He is hitting .264 with three homers and 15 RBIs in 34 games with the Angels.
Izturis hasn't played since April 30 because of a tight right hamstring. He is hitting .245 with one homer and 14 RBIs in 29 games with the Angels.
