The Los Angeles Angels placed outfielder Justin Upton on the 10-day injured list Sunday with an ailing back.
The Angels recalled fellow outfielder Kean Wong from Triple-A Salt Lake to replace Upton, who was scratched from Saturday’s lineup against the Texas Rangers.
Upton, 34, is batting .211 with 17 homers and 41 RBIs in 89 games this season.
He is a career .262 hitter with 324 homers and 1,000 RBIs in 1,828 games with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Atlanta Braves, San Diego Padres, Detroit Tigers and Angels.
Wong, 26, batted .171 (7-for-41) with two doubles, a triple and five RBIs in 20 games this season with the Angels.
He is the younger brother of Kolten Wong of the Milwaukee Brewers.
