Orioles slugger Chris Davis launched his 51st home run of the season Tuesday night at Fenway Park. It was a bomb over the center field wall and it pushed Davis past Brady Anderson for the O’s single-season home run record. Anderson hit 50 in 1996. Here’s the replay from MLB.com, with Gary Thorne on the call:
Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that Angels reliever Blake Wood underwent an MRI and was diagnosed with a damaged ulnar collateral ligament. Wood will seek further opinions before a course of treatment is decided. Tommy John surgery is a possibility.
Wood, 32, had been on a rehab assignment with High-A Inland Empire and has been on the disabled list since April 22. Prior to the injury, Wood compiled a 2.31 ERA with a 10/7 K/BB ratio in 11 2/3 innings.
Keynan Middleton recently underwent Tommy John surgery to repair a damaged UCL, so it’s not been a great time to be a member of the Angels’ bullpen.
