Angels to activate Kendrick on Saturday

KANSAS CITY -- Second baseman Howard Kendrick, who has recovered from a sore right hamstring, will be activated by the Angels on Saturday.

"He's ready to go," manager Mike Scioscia said.

Outfielder Vernon Wells (sore right groin) may not be far behind. Wells took batting practice on Wednesday and will continue to swing over the next couple of days before heading out for a a rehab assignment.

Scioscia said Wells needs only to work his torso and hands through a series of batting-practice sessions before beginning a Minor League rehab stint.
