Angels' Bobby Wilson, Jeff Mathis on the mend
Angels catcher Bobby Wilson, who sprained his left ankle and sustained a concussion when he was bowled over at the plate by the Yankees’ Mark Teixeira 2½ weeks ago, took batting practice on the field this weekend for the first time since the collision and said he expects to join Class A Rancho Cucamonga on a rehabilitation assignment this week.
Wilson, who was making his first start of the year in the game in which was hurt, will work out with the team at Angel Stadium on Monday, then be evaluated by the medical staff.
Another injured catcher, Jeff Mathis, is still wearing a cast on his fractured wrist. He is likely to be out of action another couple of weeks.
