De Los Santos sidelined for 8-10 weeks
TEMPE, Ariz. -- Anel De Los Santos, a 22-year-old catcher from the Dominican Republic who has climbed as high as Double-A in the Angels system, is out for an estimated 8-10 weeks after suffering a torn ligament in his left thumb.

It happened during a drill when he was falling to his left, and, trying to regain balance, left his glove hand in a vulnerable position.

Signed as a non-drafted free agent in 2005, De Los Santos is known for his solid defensive work. He is a .219 hitter in 284 Minor League games with 19 homers and 126 RBIs. Hampered by injuries last year, he batted .225 in 20 games for Double-A Arkansas.
