Bill Hall was in street clothes a little after 9:30 a.m. today, while the rest of his Angels teammates were getting ready for pregame drills.
Hall was off to get an MRI on his left calf, which tightened up on him during infield drills on Wednesday. Hall believes he may have been overcompensating for a previous injury to his right quadriceps when he hurt his calf. Angels manager Mike Scioscia noted that Hall injured his left calf last year.
“It’s real frustrating,” Hall said. “I was playing well. I did a lot of work this off-season to try and prevent things like that.”
Both Hall and Scioscia said it’s too early to project an exact timetable for Hall, but the MRI will go a long way toward determining when he can return. Regardless, he’s running out of time. The annual preseason Angels-Dodgers “Freeway Series” begins two weeks from today.
