This season has gotten off to an auspicious start for a couple of Opening Day starters in the AL West.
Jered Weaver went on the DL with a broken bone in his non-pitching elbow. He has been put on the shelf for 4-6 weeks. Although he has only missed two starts to this point the Angels have missed his presence on the field.
Matt Harrison was also placed on the DL with back stiffness that had been bothering him for a few weeks. The Rangers have now released a statement that he will undergo surgery on a herniated disk that will keep on the DL until at least after the All-Star Break.
Also throw in Yoenis Cespedes from the Athletics and this season hasn’t been friendly to some of their teams most important players.
