Angels Outfielder Rehabbing With Inland Empire

San Bernardino, CA – Angels’ outfielder Vernon Wells will begin a rehab assignment with the Inland Empire 66ers on Sunday when the team visits the High Desert Mavericks. It will be Wells’ first ever California League appearance. The game can be heard beginning with the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Pregame show on the 66ers flagship station, 1050 KCAA.

Vernon Wells entered 2011 as the American League’s all-time leader in outfield fielding percentage (.993). The three-time All-Star and Gold Glove Award winner has 227 career home runs, 826 career RBI and over 1500 lifetime hits. He was placed on the disabled list on May 9th with a strained right groin and has not played since.

Wells joined the Angels in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays in January in exchange for Mike Napoli and Juan Rivera. Wells had played in at least portions of the previous 12 seasons for the Blue Jays including his 2003 season where he led the American League in hits with 215 and doubles with 49. Wells was originally selected fifth overall by the Blue Jays in the 1997 draft out of Arlington Bowie High School in Texas.

Wells joins the 66ers for the series opener against the High Desert Mavericks in Adelanto on Sunday. First pitch is scheduled for 5:05, and the game can be heard on 1050 KCAA or online through the 66ers team website,
