David Fletcher sidelined again with sore ankle

David Fletcher is out of the lineup again on Wednesday for the Angels, for their series opener against the Padres, his second straight game missed with a sore ankle.

“He’s not going to be able to play tonight,” manager Joe Maddon said on a conference call. “I’m not sure about tomorrow yet, and then into the weekend, so he is truly day to day.”

Fletcher injured the ankle in Sunday’s loss to the Mariners, and left that game in the fifth inning. Before that, Fletcher played in every inning this season, and has been one of the Angels’ most valuable players.
