While it doesn’t seem overly serious since the X-rays came back clean, it wouldn’t be surprising if Rendon missed at least a few games. The Angels’ third baseman just returned from a groin injury a week ago after missing 11 games. Rendon hit his third home run of the year on Monday before exiting in the eighth inning and is now day-to-day with a knee contusion.
Early season injuries have been the main reason the former Washington National has slid out of the early AL MVP race. Rendon opened the season among FanDuel Sportsbook’s favorites at +1800 to win the award but has dropped out of the top ten with +5000 odds. The veteran slugger is hitting just .276 with 11 RBI and nine runs scored in 15 games this season.
The Angels resume their three-game set with Tampa as the -122 moneyline favorite at the FanDuel Sportsbook. LA will send Alex Cobb to the mound while the Rays counter with rookie Shane McClanahan.
