Angels reliever Jake Jewell has broken right fibula; season over

Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jake Jewell's season is over after he broke his right fibula in Wednesday night's game with the Red Sox in Boston.

Jewell will undergo right ankle surgery Friday in Los Angeles.He was making only his third major league appearance Wednesday night.

Jewell was trying to make a play at the plate in the eighth inning. With runners on second and third and Mitch Moreland at the plate, Jewell uncorked a wild pitch.

He raced to the plate to cover and appeared to slip before getting there, with his right ankle getting caught beneath him.

The right-hander remained down on the ground for several minutes before a stretcher was wheeled out to home plate. He was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for evaluation.

Jewell, 25, had been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake before Wednesday's game. He had been 3-4 with five saves and a 3.08 ERA in a combined 26 relief appearances this season between Double-A Mobile and Salt Lake.

The Angels recalled right-handed pitcher Eduardo Paredes from Salt Lake and added right-hander Taylor Cole to the major league roster. The club also optioned infielder Nolan Fontana to Salt Lake and transferred infielder Zack Cozart to the 60-day DL. Cozart is scheduled to have season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder on Friday.
