Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim second baseman Howie Kendrick was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a hyperextended left knee.

Kendrick had to be helped off the field after a scary collision with teammate Collin Cowgill in the fifth inning of Monday's game against the Texas Rangers.

Playing right field, Cowgill went into an early slide as he and Kendrick converged on Elvis Andrus' fly ball. Kendrick appeared to make the catch at the same time Cowgill had his arm extended trying to do the same.

Cowgill's arm, however, connected with Kendrick's left knee, which was planted in the ground and bent the other way upon impact. The infielder was immediately taken to the locker room with the help of two trainers after they inspected the injury.

Kendrick was batting .301 with 11 home runs and 47 RBI in 108 games this season.

To take Kendrick's place on the roster, the Angels selected the contract of southpaw pitcher Buddy Boshers from Triple-A Salt Lake. Boshers has spent time with Salt Lake and Double-A Arkansas this season. In 44 combined games, he is 4-2 with a 3.35 ERA.
