Callaspo, acquired last July in a trade with the Royals, was batting .285 with three home runs and 28 RBIs, third-most on the team. If Callaspo goes on the 15-day disabled list, the Angels probably would use utility man Maicer Izturis as the everyday third baseman and recall infielder Alexi Amarista from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Callaspo was batting .300 with runners in scoring position. The Angels, who had lost six in a row entering Saturday's game, were batting .229 in that category as a team.
