MLB: Angels place INF David Fletcher (hand) on IL

The Los Angeles Angels placed infielder David Fletcher on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a bruised right hand.

He tried to play through it this week after getting hit by a fastball from the Houston Astros’ Jose Urquidy on Sept. 10. X-rays were negative but the discomfort has lingered.

Fletcher, 28, is batting .259 with two homers and 15 RBIs in 54 games this season.

In corresponding moves, the Angels selected the contract of infielder Livan Soto from Double-A Rocket City and transferred infielder Andrew Velazquez (knee) to the 60-day injured list.
