The Los Angeles Angels placed infielder David Fletcher on the 10-day injured list, one of a series of Sunday transactions.

Fletcher, 27, has a left hip strain. He is batting .158 with two RBIs in 14 games this season.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Fletcher will see a specialist in Philadelphia on Monday and surgery apparently is “on the table.”

Infielder/outfielder Jose Rojas also landed on the injured list with no injury designation, which generally indicates COVID-19.

Rojas, 29, is batting .130 with one RBI in seven games with the Angels this season.

The team also recalled infielder Luis Rengifo from Triple-A Salt Lake, selected the contract of outfielder Aaron Whitefield from Double-A Rocket City and optioned left-hander Kenny Rosenberg to Salt Lake.

Rengifo, 25, is batting .313 with four homers and 15 RBIs in 24 games at Salt Lake.

Whitefield, 25, is hitting .301 with five homers, 17 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in 24 games at Rocket City.

Rosenberg, 26, made his MLB debut on April 18 and allowed one run on two hits in one inning of relief at Houston.
