Glaus 'day-to-day' with tendinitis in wrist
ESPN.com news services
The team reported Tuesday that Glaus has tendinitis in his right wrist, but he remains a possibility to be available for the club's Opening Day lineup. Glaus will remain in the Los Angeles area for the next few days to receive treatment on the wrist from specialist Dr. Norman Zemel.
Officially, Glaus is listed as day-to-day. The Angels open their regular season on Sunday when they play host to the Rangers (ESPN, 8:05 ET).
Glaus, the 2002 World Series MVP, was removed from the lineup minutes before Sunday's Cactus League game after pain flared within his wrist. He was sent for X-rays, which were inconclusive, raising the possibility that he might have a fracture.
Glaus, the Angels' primary power hitter, has led the team in home runs in each of the last three seasons.
"It's going to be tough to fill Troy's shoes," Angels manager Mike Scioscia told reporters Monday. "I think we have guys that can do a good job in the short term."
Before the diagnosis, Scioscia said the Angels will be prepared in case Glaus has to go on the disabled list. He mentioned Scott Spiezio, Benji Gil and Shawn Wooten as possible replacements at third base.
Glaus is hitting .215 without a home run in 42 at-bats this spring. He hit 30 homers and drove in a career-high 111 runs last season and batted .385 with three homers and eight RBI in the World Series.
