Iannetta out 6-8 weeks, wrist surgery 

Post#1 » by dockingsched » Thu May 10, 2012 10:58 pm!/MikeDiGiovanna

#Angels C Chris Iannetta to undergo surgery on right wrist. He will be sidelined for six to eight weeks.

#Angels C Chris Iannetta was hurt when he was hit on the right wrist by a pitch on May 2, the night he caught Jered Weaver's no-hitter.

Hank Conger has been on triple-A DL, so he's probably not an option for #Angels. Robinson Diaz and John Hester have been catching at Salt Lk

Loss of Iannetta a pretty big blow for #Angels. Though he was hitting .197 he did have a .312 OBP and some pop. Bobby Wilson will start now.

Damn, this sucks. Normally I'd be happy with being able to unleash the Conger, but he's not even healthy right now. Damn..why can't this happen to Wells instead?
