The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim had a plethora of outfielders one week ago. They were already minus one with Torii Hunter on the restrictive list and now have lost two more players.

Vernon Wells was forced to leave the game Sunday after injuring his thumb in a stolen-base attempt while Ryan Langerhans separated his shoulder after running into the outfield wall during the game.

Not only were both players forced to leave the game, but it now appears that both players will find themselves on the disabled list, according to Marcia Smith of the Orange County Register:

With the injury to Wells, it would appear that Peter Bourjos will have another chance to shine in the outfield. After Mike Trout was called up, it was Bourjos who saw his time cut. He is only hitting .203 on the season after Sunday's game.

Bourjos had been playing terrible all season, perhaps due to the pressure of Trout moving up from the minors. Now that Trout is up and Wells is injured, this might be Bourjos' time for redemption.
