Angels second baseman Johnny Giavotella has been placed on the disabled list with what the team is calling a “personal medical condition.”

Giavotella has started 114 of 124 games at second base for the Angels this season, but he’ll miss at least two weeks with the undisclosed issue and Triple-A call-up Grant Green is expected to see most of the action at second base in his absence.

Giavotella has hit .265 with three homers and a .662 OPS in 119 games. Green has spent nearly all season in the minors, but the former first-round draft pick previously hit .259 with two homers and a .640 OPS in 88 games in 2013/2014.
