Angels' Matthews Goes Down
UPDATE: Matthews was taken to a local doctor to have preliminary X-rays taken.
At the end of the first inning, Gary Matthews Jr. twisted his right ankle touching third base and immediately fell to the ground in pain. Manager Mike Scioscia and head athletic trainer Ned Bergert went out to assist Matthews and helped him off the field.
It was announced that Matthews has a sprained right ankle, the same injury that cost him 10 games in mid-September after he hurt himself stealing a base in Baltimore. There is a chance he may start the season on the DL just to be safe and get everything working properly.
