However, it does not appear the shortstop will miss any significant amount of time.

"His knee got a little tight up almost where his quad is," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "He should be available tomorrow, but we didn't want to take any chances tonight."

The shortstop has already missed time and been on the disabled list this season with a left heel contusion and hamstring tightness.
