Erick Aybar: Could Hit the DL Staff

Update: Aybar (heel) will not be in the lineup Thursday and a stint on the disabled list has not been ruled out.

Recommendation: Aybar was never likely to play Thursday, even after x-rays on his heel came back negative. He is officially day-to-day, but it sounds like the pain is bad enough that the Angels can't yet rule out a trip to the DL.
