The Angels' medical staff eventually helped Kendrick off the field, but he appeared to be putting some weight on his leg. The Angels don't know how long they will be without second baseman Howie Kendrick, but they received some good news on Tuesday. Los Angeles Angels second baseman Howie Kendrick was helped off the field Monday night after hyperextending his left knee while chasing a popup in the outfield. Kendrick was hurt in the fifth inning of the Angels' game against the Texas Rangers when he sprinted into right field to catch Elvis Andrus' tailing popup with two runners in scoring position. He has been a valuable offensive contributor with the absence of injured first baseman Albert Pujols and the season-long struggles of outfielder Josh Hamilton.
