I can't blame Kendry for getting excited. I can, however, blame the knucklehead teammate of his (couldn't ID him on the replay) who grabbed him by the head and pushed him down when he was in mid-air, causing him to land awkwardly.

It's a freak injury, and I hope the Angels can step it up while he is out.
The same thing happened a few years ago to a Padre minor leaguer. Tagg Bozeid hit a walk-off homer in AA then blew his knee out in the celebration at the plate. It ended his season, and he never reached the majors.
