Haren Injured In Angels Debut

From Mark Saxson:
Dan Haren had to leave his first start with the Los Angeles Angels Monday after his right forearm was struck by a Kevin Youkilis line drive.

After an examination by team doctor Craig Milhouse, the Angels said Haren has a bruised right forearm. No X-rays were taken, according to the team. Haren will be re-examined Tuesday by team orthopedist Lewis Yocum.

"It's pretty sore, but I don't think it hit bone or anything," Haren said while standing in front of his new locker following the Angels' 6-3 loss to the Red Sox. "It was just the meat of my forearm. They said I was lucky, that it looks like I'll be fine to go next time. It swelled up pretty good, but it's nothing I'm worried about."
He was pitching a pretty decent game, too. Over the first 4.2 innings he allowed two runs on seven hits, did not walk a batter, and struck out eight.
