The move was made to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly-acquired Huston Street. The 29-year-old slugger hit just .176/.222/.382 with two homers and seven RBI in his 68 at-bats with the Angels this season.

Angels activated 3B Ian Stewart from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Stewart has been sidelined since mid-May with a left hand injury and suffered a setback during his first attempt at a rehab assignment. He's apparently feeling better now, but the Angels want him to get some regular at-bats in the minors.

Ian Stewart (hand) has left his rehab in Triple-A Salt Lake City due to lingering discomfort in his left hand.

Stewart has been on the disabled list since May 12 with a left hand contusion. He played in two rehab games on May 25 and 26, going hitless with four strikeouts in seven plate appearances. He has gone to Arizona to rehab, and will return to Salt Lake City when his hand feels better. In 72 plate appearances with the Angels, Stewart posted a .176/.222/.382 slash line.

Ian Stewart (hand) is hoping to begin a rehab assignment this weekend.

Stewart is still experiencing some pain in his left hand when he takes batting practice, but he's hoping the pain will subside soon. He was placed on the disabled list on May 12 after being hit on the hand with a pitch. He avoided a break, so he should be able to come off the DL soon after he's eligible.

Angels placed INF Ian Stewart on the 15-day disabled list with a left hand contusion.

Stewart suffered the severe contusion Sunday when he was hit on the hand by a pitch. X-rays were taken and came back negative, so the hope is he'll be fully recovered after 15 days of rest. Luis Jimenez has been promoted from Triple-A Salt Lake to provide third base depth.

Ian Stewart (hand) is headed to the disabled list.

Stewart suffered a bad bruise Sunday when he was struck on the hand by a pitch. X-rays were negative, so he should be ready as soon as his 15-day stint is over. Luis Jimenez is being called up to replace him on the Angels' roster.
May 12 - 3:31 PM

The Angels announced Sunday that X-rays on Ian Stewart's hand came back negative, though there has still been no determination made on his status.

Stewart was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Blue Jays after he was hit in the hand by a ball following a swing. The team should provide an update on his status Monday, but consider him day-to-day for the time being.

Ian Stewart left Sunday's game versus the Blue Jays after being hit on the left hand by the ball following a swing.

No, it wasn't a hit by pitch. Stewart actually swung and missed and then was hit with the ball. The third baseman is surely headed for X-rays.
May 11 - 3:27 PM

Ian Stewart is not in the Angels starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Blue Jays.

The Angels are utilizing an all right-handed lineup against J.A. Happ in this one, with John McDonald manning the hot corner and hitting ninth.
May 10 - 10:43 AM

Ian Stewart finished 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Yankees.

The former Rockie has been a nice surprise for the Angels thus far, hitting .250 (10-for-40) with six extra-base hits (two home runs) and six RBI in 13 games. Angels manager Mike Scioscia has said that David Freese is not being platooned at third base, but he could struggle to get at-bats against right-handers if Stewart keeps hitting.
Apr 25 - 11:27 PM

Ian Stewart is in the Angels' lineup, batting cleanup for Monday's game against the Nationals.

Stewart nearly hit for the cycle on Friday and his hot start has been rewarded with an ascension in the batting order. He hit sixth on Saturday and clean-up on Sunday, and will remain in the No. 4 spot Monday. In 29 plate appearances, Stewart is slugging .571, though he has otherwise been pedestrian in the average and on-base departments.
Apr 21 - 3:45 PM

Angels purchased the contract of 3B Ian Stewart from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Stewart earned a spot after batting .292/.364/.500 with three homers this spring. He'll back up at both corner infield spots for the Halos.
Mar 30 - 8:28 AM

Ian Stewart had a big day at the plate, going 3-for-5 with a solo home run as the Angels defeated the Cubs 8-4 on Tuesday.

Stewart, vying for a spot on the Angels' bench, took Alberto Cabrera deep in the eighth inning for his third long ball of the spring. Stewart has had trouble getting back to the Majors due to injuries and off-the-field incidents.
Mar 25 - 7:31 PM

Ian Stewart did not suffer a broken nose Monday when he was accidentally struck by his young daughter.

Stewart had to be scratched from the Angels' Cactus League lineup on Monday due to swelling, but he'll be fine by the end of this week. The 29-year-old former top prospect signed a minor league contract with Anaheim in late January and is trying to win a bench spot.
