That flu bug that slowed Jeff Mathis and threatened to derail Mike Napoli seems to have subsided. Catcher Bobby Wilson is on the roster just in case, but it seems like his stay in Anaheim will be a short one. Wilson is on the major-league roster for the first time in his career.
Mathis was the original starting catcher tonight (Monday) but was scratched in favor of Napoli.
“Jeff felt good today but we’re going to keep him out,” manager Mike Scioscia said. “We originally had him in the lineup but he was evaluated and he’ll just work out today. Hopefully he will be in there tomorrow so Napoli will catch today.”
