Los Angeles Angels rookie reliever Jake Jewell has a broken right leg and could miss the rest of the season.
The Angels put Jewell on the 10-day disabled list Thursday Marcus Gilchrist Jersey , a day after he was injured in a game against Boston. He’s scheduled to have surgery Friday.
Jewell was carted off the field at Fenway Park on Wednesday night. Called up from Triple-A earlier in the day, he appeared to catch his cleat as he covered the plate on a run-scoring wild pitch and fractured his fibula. The 25-year-old was hurt in his third big league game.
The Angels recalled right-handed pitcher Eduardo Paredes from Triple-A 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.
The Green Bay Packers have signed second-round draft pick Josh Jackson from Iowa.
Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst announced the cornerback's signing on Thursday.
Jackson was taken with the 45th overall pick in last month's draft Tim Williams Jersey , and his signing comes two days after the Packers signed first-round pick Jaire Alexander, a cornerback from Louisville.
The 6-foot Kyle Wilber Jersey , 196-pound Jackson led the country with eight interceptions as a senior for the Hawkeyes, returning two for touchdowns.
He and Alexander are expected to improve a Green Bay secondary that allowed 30 touchdown passes last season Josh Hill Jersey , tied for the second-highest total of any team.
