Angels' Bobby Abreu takes a sick day

March 10, 2011 | 11:03 am

Bobby_240 Just about everyone in the Angels' camp, from players to coaches to reporters, has been slowed by allergies at some time this spring. So it was no surprise that Bobby Abreu, who has been under the weather for a couple of days, had to take himself out of the lineup for Thursday's Cactus League game with the Royals at Tempe Diablo Stadium.

Abreu was starting in left field, batting second. He'll be replaced by Tyson Auer, who is hitless in eight at-bats this spring.

The revised lineup:

3B -- Maicer Izturis

SS -- Erick Aybar

RF -- Torii Hunter

CF -- Vernon Wells

2B -- Howie Kendrick

DH -- Alberto Callaspo

1B -- Mark Trumbo

C -- Jeff Mathis

LF -- Tyson Auer

P -- Joel Pineiro

-- Kevin Baxter in Tempe, Ariz.
