ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels have placed infielder Howie Kendrick on the 15-day disabled list with right hamstring tightness.

The move, announced before Thursday’s game against Oakland, is retroactive to May 20. Kendrick has missed the past seven games after his hamstring tightened last week in Seattle.

Kendrick ran before the game and manager Mike Scioscia said he was feeling better. Kendrick is the Angels’ leading hitter with a .322 average.

Also, the team signed infielder Russell Branyan to a contract for the season. He was designated for assignment last week by Arizona and released Wednesday.
